I know that like me parents of SEND children are feeling surveyed out at this time!!! Not a week goes by without a survey or consultation request arriving in my inbox. Please do not swipe this into junk!!
Here is why! - We need you!
We are in the process of reviewing the therapy provision of Physiotherapy Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy, here in Kent and Medway. To do this we want to hear from as many parents as possible about your experiences, be they good or bad. We need to know what is working and what is not to make the changes that will improve the experience of families so that we can commission services that work for you.
I know that children often have therapy at school which is not always close to home and one child’s experience can be different to another’s. This is because there are different providers working across the county. We need families’ experiences to create an accurate picture of the situation across the whole of Kent and Medway. I can only collect this information with your help.
We have tried to keep the survey as short as possible so it can be completed as quickly, please if you manage to get five minutes, (I know how hard that can be!), fill it in and pass it on through your parent networks.
There will be more opportunities to contribute to this review as it progresses. If you would like to be involved or would like feedback on the review’s findings, please include your contact details when completing the survey.
Thank you for your time.
