We work with parents who are concerned about their child's education and who feel their Local Authority is not providing adequate support to address their child's Special Educational Needs (SEN). Find out more about some of these Special Educational Needs and how you can ensure you get support for your child from the Local Authority, using the Tribunal Process.
We help you through the legal process and paperwork meaning you can concentrate on caring for your child and looking forward to seeing real results. View the process page to find out what the appeal process entails and the timescales involved.
