Our education team are leading experts in special educational needs and disability law. Every child or young person with special educational needs and/or disabilities is entitled to an education that ensures they can achieve the best possible outcome in their learning, future career and life. With an education, health and care plan, a local authority must provide a child or young person with all the support necessary to meet their learning needs.

Unfortunately, many children or young people go without education, health and care plans or are provided with plans that do not provide the provision they desperately need. This should not go unchallenged; it puts their education and future quality of life at substantial and needless risk.

There are many ways of helping parents get the right support, including when necessary, appealing to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal. Our education law team has a proven track record of success and have helped thousands of parents ensure their children get support they need.

Geldards offers a free telephone consultation to all parents, which means you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s case with an expert lawyer before deciding on what action to take. We will always provide honest and impartial advice regarding the strength of your case and whether you should pursue it. Contact us now and arrange a free telephone consultation with one of our expert lawyers who will discuss your child’s case with you, in plain English without any legal jargon. Our lawyers will consider your child’s case and help you understand the best steps forward in helping your child achieve their potential.
