workshops and courses

Amaze offers workshops, courses, events and support groups for parents and for young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

Amaze courses and workshops during coronavirus lockdown
The ongoing lockdown means we are unable to run our normal in person events, courses and workshops. However we are running some online groups, drop-ins and information sessions. Please call our SENDIASS Helpline on 01273 772289 or check our events page for more details.

For information about other Amaze services during Coronavirus lock-down, including our PaCC Coffee Mornings, please read our Coronavirus Service statement

Amaze workshops and courses are an opportunity to share experiences of being a parent carer or young person with special needs and to learn more about useful topics.

We believe life experience is as important as professional expertise so we aim to co-deliver our courses for parents with parent trainers, and involve young people with SEND in running activities for young people.

The workshops and courses currently on offer varies in different areas and over time but includes workshops on EHCPs and annual reviews, claiming disability benefits like DLA and PIP and transition to adulthood.

Please check our events page for the latest Amaze workshops and courses.

We also publicise our courses and events on our Facebook page, and share information about courses and events run by other organisations but you may want to check out these other sources too:

The course was outstanding and I feel I learnt so much about the education system and resilience and so much more about myself.
