Ask, Listen, Do

You may find the following leaflet, funded by the Department for Education and developed by families as part of NHS England's Ask Listen Do project helpful in planning your child’s return to school.

'Returning to school after a period of absence', is intended to help build partnership between families and the school. The intention is to equip families with questions to ask of schools to make the return to school from a period of absence as successful as possible. The questions can be used by families and by young people to support self-advocacy.

NHS national programme, Ask, Listen, Do (ALD) is about making feedback, concerns and complaints easier for people with a learning disability, autism or both and their families and carers. The programme supports organisations to learn from and improve the experiences of people with a learning disability, autism or both, their families and carers.   Find out more about ALD here.


Worried about your son or daughter returning to school?

Do raise any concerns with your child’s school/college as soon as possible.  We suggest you do not leave it until the first day of term - this does not give your school/college any time to prepare.
