Legal Advice for Parents of SEN children

We’ve teamed up with Sinclairs Law to put on a couple of seminars to provide information, support and advice on two topics that we get asked about often on our helpline:

The Statement of Special Education Needs (SEN) and preparing for a Tribunal. (We still have Statements in Wales) on 27th April 2018

Preparing for Social Care Support for Post 16 on 25th May 2018

Both seminars are aimed at Parents and Carers and will take place in Cardiff. Tickets are £10 for Parents and Carers, and £50 for Professionals who wish to attend. Further information on both seminars and how to get tickets are below.

Ensuring your child gets the appropriate Statement of Educational Needs (SEN) may mean you have to take the local education authority (LEA) to a tribunal if they are not listening to what your child needs, or they are not willing to quantify and qualify exactly the support thats required. Often parents get bullied into accepting a statement that is woefully inadequate and get told ‘untruths’ about what the statement can legally include.

This is an afternoon talk for parents and carers of SEN children on what a statement should include and how to prepare yourselves for the SEN Tribunal should you not wish to engage solicitors (and even if you do).

27th April 2018 in Cardiff. £10 for Parents and Carers, £50 for Professionals

For those of us whose children are going to be in the social care system from age 16 and beyond, it is worrying when all we hear is how the system has often failed other children and families. Get prepared now by getting information, advice and support to get the best for you and your child.

This is an afternoon talk for parents and carers to inform themselves on their legal status and making the best decisions on health and social care for their child.
