Travel Training for students with SEN

Hello, does anyone have any packages they can recommend/share being used for youngsters with SEN. Any guidance for use when training to use public transport, safety from home to the bus stop etc. Thanks

Jenny Wright

Hi Jenny - we created an initiative a few years ago for Lewisham Council to help SEN teenagers get used to travelling more independently. We worked with MENCAP and some of their young people to ensure the messaging was clear. Drop me a line at james@b3online.co.uk and I'll fire over a pdf.

Hi Jenny,

Many thanks for the question - I'm going to follow up some of these leads . I've done basic sessions to add to the work SEN schools do in our area - from age 11-25 about. Based on a simple powerpoint presentation with some materials to give out. Other's stuff looks potentially much more robust - but if you want it you are welcome.

Devon County Council's Transport Co-Ordination Service will be able to advise on their Independent Travel Training too.
