The SEN system is complex and can be very difficult to navigate. Unfortunately, it is also littered with bad advice; misunderstandings of the legal duties that apply; and an apathy from advice providers (including SENDIASS Services) who promote a culture of "least resistance" or a view that "we can't do anything about it".

The key for parents and carers is to be able to access practical advice and guidance from legal specialists so that decisive action can be taken quickly for the benefit of the child or young person. The pages that follow have been designed to do just that and will help you to cut through the malaise which unfortunately exists within this specialist field.

All of the information provided on these pages is free to download and we hope that it helps you to resolve difficulties without having to resort to lawyers.
