Transforming the lives of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities

Advice and support for parents of children with a disability or other special needs - our expert teams are here to help.

Parents of children with a disability often face significant uncertainty and struggle when seeking to secure an appropriate education and care package for their child. Each educational milestone and life stage can present fresh challenges. This was very well illustrated in the recent BBC documentary Harvey and Me, about Katie Price and her severely disabled young adult son and some of the daunting decision making involved for Katie as he reached 18.

Our education team are leading experts in special educational needs, mental capacity and disability law. Every child and young person is entitled to an education that ensures they can achieve the best possible outcome in their learning, and future.

The team led by Adam Friel, have helped thousands of parents secure the particular support their children need. This can be lifechanging for those children and their parents as the wonderful feedback in the video below shows.

The specialist work undertaken by Adam and his team compliments the expertise and peace of mind our Wills & Planning for the Future Team are able to offer parents and grandparents anxious to put appropriate Will and trust provision in place for a child or grandchild with special needs and who are often and understandably not sure where to start with this.

If you think you would benefit from a conversation around these issues, please contact our experts from the Education Team or Wills & Planning For The Future.
