Fully updated, this essential, accessible guide to the legal entitlements of children and young people with special needs explains the new system of Education, Health and Care Plans which replaces the Statement of Special Educational Needs. It provides information for parents about how the system works, what they can expect and how they can appeal. This straightforward, comprehensive guide to the legal rights of children and young people with special educational needs includes all the most recent developments in law, and clearly explains the key issues in a complex system.

Helping parents to understand the legal entitlements of their child, Nettleton and Friel explain the what are Education, Health and Care Plans; how assessments are carried out and how annual reviews, amendments, rights of appeal and tribunals work in practice. They also include help with 25 of the most common problems encountered, a discussion of relevant cases, extracts from the official published guidance issued, and a draft Reasons for Appeal.

This essential handbook for parents of children with special educational needs will also be a key reference for teachers, charities, Local Authority officers, and lawyers in other fields. The law in Scotland is different as it is a devolved area of law.
