Top ranked special educational needs solicitors
We have compiled a detailed set of factsheets which give an overview to the practical law concerning special educational needs.
The factsheets are intended as free general guidance and are not individual tailored legal advice. You should always seek individual advice before taking any particular action.

- What are Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
- What additional support is available for my child/young person?
- How will my child/young persons' Statement of SEN/learning difficulty assessment change to an EHCP?
- New rules for young people over the age of 16
- What is the local offer?
- What are personal budgets and direct payments?
- My Local Authority has refused to assess my child

- Challenging the contents of an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP)
- What is mediation?
- The Appeals process
- How will my child/young persons' EHCP be reviewed and amended?
- I am unhappy about the decision of the Special Educational Needs & Disability Tribunal (SENDIST)

I am so happy at the outcome, I don't think we would have had such a comprehensive service from any other law firm, and you took the worry away...I do not regret a single second of the whole process, apart from the bit before you got involved.
