Special education needs, support and advice from national charity
National charity Young Epilepsy is pleased to invite parents and carers from across England to a workshop about special educational needs funding.
The one-hour workshop, which is part of a half-day Open Day at the charity’s headquarters, will take place on Wednesday 14 March, and will be led by Deborah Hay, a barrister at Hardwicke and Imelda Brennan, solicitor at Langley Wellington LLP.
The workshop is open to anyone that cares for a child with special needs. Delegates will have the opportunity to learn more about Tribunals, which rule on disputes between parents and Local Authorities about young people’s education.
Parents and carers attending the workshop will also have the chance to hear about the experiences other people have had in securing funding for their child’s special educational needs, something that affects around 3% of all school children.
