Hence if your child requires support with the following areas of education law we can assist;
- Ability to comprehend

- Physical ability
- Reading and writing
- Social skills
Education advice tends to follow the SEN route (Special Education Needs) and involves an individual who takes responsibility for planning and monitoring the additional support a young person or child requires.
In general parents and guardians should be involved in discussions around education planning and those individuals should be updated a minimum of three times a year on the support that’s being provided to the young person. The report should include the name of the personnel involved and how progress will be monitored and evaluated.
In the event you are uncertain as to whether your child has special educational needs (SEN) it is worth seeking legal advice as a mechanism to both understand the process and confirm what options are available in the event you feel the SEN assistance is insufficient.
Fortunately the Education advice our team of lawyers provides is tailored to providing the best outcome for the individual concerned, and that applies whether court action is required or simply solicitors letters prompting councils or schools to proceed in a certain direction.
