As a law firm one of our central roles is to provide support to those facing SEN issues, hence our Education solicitors specialise in dealing with all matters relating to learning. That’s the case whether the education solicitor you chose to work with is near to you, or further afield.

We see our role as understanding the nature of Special Education Needs (SEN) and consequently we offer support to those individuals who are uncertain of the legal support they can expect.

In general, the UK’s SEN support system works well but there are instances where the system does not provide the levels of support individuals might legitimately expect. What’s more you may be facing a situation where you are uncertain as to how to approach matters and that’s where a friendly voice at the end of the phone can help. As mentioned, that voice might be near to you, or it might be from one of our offices.

ou may wish to challenge a Local Authority’s decision, and if that’s the case it may become necessary to appoint a SEN solicitor to provide the relevant legal advice. Visiting a SEN solicitor isn’t generally necessary as the process can be carried out remotely. In terms of an overview we can provide assistance with;

  • If a local authority is failing to recognise the SEN needs of your child
  • If there’s been disability discrimination
  • If there’s issues accessing transport
  • If there’s been a problem gaining access to a Home Education package
  • If you need statutory funding
  • If you wish to challenge an EHC

Living with a child with SEN needs can be difficult and we understand the additional pressures affecting your life. Our role is to provide the support and advice you’ll need to gain the best outcome for your child. It’s not about the local authority, or funding, it’s about the child… and we never lose sight of that fact.

As specialist SEN solicitors we understand the law inside and out and we are on hand to provide the support and advice you may need at this time. To discuss matters further please contact our specialist SEN Education team on 0333 202 7175.
