Many parents of disabled or SEN children have some difficulty at one time or another with their child's education. Often the problem is that the nursery or school just don't know what the law says that they must do for disabled children. As a parent it can be very helpful if you already know what the Equality Act says that the school must do. When you visit the school you can tell them what you would like them to do.
We also run fantastic courses for parents that go with the book. You can book this with a group of parents, or you can contact your local parent/carers forum. Click here for more details of the course. If you have any questions about this, please contact us here.
Why not ask your child's school if they would like to book an Inclusive Choice course? We have great courses for schools to understand their duties.
