All children and young people are entitled to a good education and this includes those with special educational needs and disabilities. Our education law team can assist you with finding the right solution for your child and support you through the maze of education legislation.
The lottery of schools admissions is a stressful time for all parents. This stress is compounded if your child does not get a place at the school of your choice.
Having a child being excluded from school or college is a worrying time for any parent. Understanding your child’s rights and your responsibilities in this area, is important to ensure the minimum possible disruption to your child’s education.
How can we help?
Our specialist multi-disciplinary Community Care and Education team can offer well-rounded advice on a variety of care issues.
Short Breaks and Respite
Despite it being widely acknowledged that short breaks are a fundamental part of any support package, thousands of families continue to be oblivious to the fact that they may be entitled to a break from caring for their disabled child.
Special Education Needs
Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can affect a child or young person’s ability to learn. They can affect their:
behaviour or ability to socialise, for example they struggle to make friends
reading and writing, for example because they have dyslexia
ability to understand things
concentration levels, for example because they have ADHD
The Local Offer
Every local authority must publish a Local Offer.
Planning a move to a new school or college is daunting at the best of times let alone when you are trying to identify a suitable placement which can meet your child’s special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
Every child has the right to an education. But does that include transport to and from school or college?
