This is a great book which explains our children's rights within education published in 2002 it is totally up-to-date with the new special educational needs law and code of practise. Also covering changes in the law, which have been brought about by the special educational needs and disability act 2001.

The book covers all major issues concerning and children's education and what provision our children are entitled to. Starting from who to contact when you first believe your child needs specific help, through the assessment process to implementation of any help, which has been agreed. There is also a specific guidance on the appeals procedure to the Special Educational Needs Tribunal.

The authors look at what the law has to say about educational special needs and the code of practise and also look and organisations that can help and advise parents when dealing with your local education authority. There is a summary of case law, how judicial review can be used to challenge a decision, legal aid advice and deception on how to complain to the secretary of state and the educational ombudsman.

Well written and extremely useful for parents who are experiencing problems with their local education authority. Also those who are having problems within schools over disability discrimination issues surrounding their child.

This user friendly book and guide to special education and with the use of many case studies give step by step guides to help parents through the confusing minefield of forms, people and hassles which can occur. There are also sample letters and details of relevant parts of the law and code of practise which is brilliant as it helps parents to follow what is happening and feel confident when they need to approach the local education authority.

An absolutely essential book for parents and all of those who help and advise them when they are trying to obtain a correct help for their child.
