A creative guide to supporting children who have special educational needs or disabilities who have encountered loss grief or bereavement.

Why get creative? We often find it difficult to talk to young people about grief and loss and even more so with children who have special education needs or disabilities. In this 3-hour interactive course we explore the importance and value of being creative when communicating about death and loss.  We also look at ways to develop the infrastructure to support young people who have special educational needs and the professionals who work with them.
