Special educational needs in Blackpool

Special educational needs in Blackpool

Every child has the right to an Education.

As specialist special educational needs (SEN) solicitors, our role is to understand the circumstances you are in and get you the best help available. Our team of Blackpool special educational needs solicitors are ready and waiting to provide that support.

Special educational needs can have an impact on:

  • Behaviour
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Social skills
  • Concentration levels
  • Ability to understand
  • Hearing and/or visual impairment
  • Physical ability

In general, the UK’s support system for SEN works well, but of course, there are instances where it does not provide the levels of support expected. In these situations, you may wish to challenge a Local Authority’s Decisions and Processes. It’s very important to select an experienced SEN solicitor like ourselves, to fight your corner.

In some instances, the school will not recognise that your child has SEN, or the school cannot meet the needs of your child. It is at this point you should consider an application for an EHC(Education, Health, and Care plan), if you are unsure, our team of specialists are happy to assist.

Our solicitors can help with the following SEN areas:

  • Disability discrimination
  • Issues accessing transport
  • Difficulties accessing a Home Education package
  • Local authority failing to recognise SEN needs of a child
  • Switching a statement of SEN over to an EHC (Education, Health, and Care plan)
  • Challenging an EHC

If you are living with a child with SEN needs, we understand the additional stresses affecting your own life. Our role is to provide support and advice to gain the best outcome for your child.

If you would like advice and support, our specialist solicitors will be happy to help and guide you through the process. If you need legal advice or guidance, please contact our specialist solicitors on 02920 291 704 or request a call back.
