Special Educational Needs and the Law explains, in a clear and practical style, every aspect of the law and practice relating to special educational needs provision.

The new edition of this popular title has been extensively revised and expanded to include detailed coverage of the new regime including new chapters on disability discrimination following the extension of the Tribunal's jurisdiction, the codes of practice underpinning it and all relevant case-law. In addition there is expanded coverage to include the systems now in operation in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Special Educational Needs and the Law provides all this information in one handy volume, together with useful appendices including tribunal statistics. It is essential reading for anyone involved in, or advising on, the education of children with special educational needs.
