Potential Plus UK is working in collaboration with Nasen, the National Association for Special Educational Needs, to establish The DME Trust to improve the lives and education of young people with dual or multiple exceptionality (SEND with high learning potential).
The DME Trust website www.dmetrust.org launched on the 16th February, during the vPlus Festival. The website brings together UK-based information about dual or multiple exceptionality to support teachers, parents and young people.
The DME Trust commissioned a report to look at provision for DME young people. This was also published on 16th February and is available on the website at https://potentialplusuk.org/index.php/dme-trust/the-current-state-of-provision-for-learners-with-dme-report/ . The report is called The Current State of Provision for Learners with DME.
Potential Plus UK also has an online webinar for parents coming up on 7th March: The Double-Edged Sword: An Introduction to DME.
During the festival the DME Trust will be running interactive sessions for children and young people and a webinar for parents.
