Special Educational Needs

A child's learning disability affects many aspects of his or her life. Aspects such as schooling and education are critical to the growth and development of a child. 

If special educational needs are not properly addressed, the child suffers. Parents often feel exhausted from dealing with the system and need to know that they can turn to someone for guidance. You can turn to us to undertake your special educational needs law matters.

"A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her." - Section 20 (1) Children and Families Act 2014.

The Richmond office of Moore Blatch, holds regular legal clinics offering advice to parents and young people regarding a range of education issues, specifically around Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP) issues.Each session is 45 minutes, either in person or by phone.
