Stefania Finch started this petition to SECRETARY OF STATE FOR EDUCATION

There are many vulnerable children/teenagers within an educational setting who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) that struggle communicating at school.

What is a Personal Communication Passport?

Personal Communication Passports are a practical and person-centred way of supporting children, young people and adults who cannot easily communicate for themselves. Personal Communication Passports are a way of pulling complex information together and presenting it in an easy-to-follow format.

My Vision;

I’m confident that if the Personal Communication Passports are made a legal requirement within an educational setting then this will provide the child/teenager with the best person-centred support and care, provide the teachers and staff with positive knowledge about the child/teenager, reflect the child’s/teenagers unique characteristics/likes/dislikes, provide a positive learning experience for children and teenagers within an educational setting but most importantly it would provide an effective and positive way of communicating with children and teenagers with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

National Recognised Symbol;

I hope to also make a National Recognised Symbol indicating when a child has additional needs and/or disabilities because not all special needs and/or disabilities are as visible as others. With this symbol it would indicate that this child or teenager has an additional need and/or disability they also have a Personalised Communication Passport please refer to this and read this to support this child or teenager. It could be something from a sticker/land yard/pin badge/bracelet or a symbol next to the child’s or teenagers name on the register.

This petition is extremely close to my heart and many others around me. Even if you may not have first hand experience with a child or teenager with special educational needs and/or disabilities please sign and share!
