This text is a comprehensive review of the issues in Special Education Needs, taking the reader through the case law as well as providing specific guidance on disability case law which is new to those specialising in SEN.

It includes coverage of the constitution and conduct of special schools which are largely omitted from other works, and focuses on cases dealing with the liability of schools/LEAs for failing to detect and address individual children's needs.

Written by a respected author in local authority, this publication is the first to combine the two disciplines of special education needs and disability and has a strong case law emphasis. It will be essential reading for barristers and solicitors dealing with education and public law, as well as all professionals working within this area.
