When a parent whose child faces permanent exclusion from school contacts the Project, a (trained) student director has an initial discussion to ensure that the case is one that the Project can take on. If the case is one within the Projectâ??s remit, the parent is assigned a student representative who prepares and conducts the appeal on their behalf. Approximately 75-80% of our cases involve children with special educational needs.

In turn, the child quickly begins to exhibit life changing symptoms such as OCD, anxiety, tics, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting abilities, sensory sensitivities, restrictive eating, and more. PANDAS Network estimates that PANDAS/PANS affects as many as 1 in 200 children.

Though education is compulsory in the UK for children between the ages of five and sixteen, school is not. Many families prefer to educate their children otherwise than at school, and it is their right under UK law to do so. Home educating families do not have to follow the National Curriculum and there is no single 'right' way to educate a child at home.

[email protected] Les Brown has offered to be a part of helping this service having come across the website after we crossed paths for a completely different reason - fate? Les Brown said..... "One of the areas of law I have a particular interest in is education law. It is not a huge area of work for me, mainly because parents are unaware of legal redress that is possible and are worried about costs. My angle in disputes with schools or education authorities usually is to seek a way forward that is constructive rather than confrontational, but sometimes the involvement of a lawyer to be the buffer between the parties means that the pressure of legal action that can be "recommended" by the solicitor encourages the education deliverer to be sensible and fulfil its responsibilities, while the parents can maintain a position of reasonableness."

Self-harm Find out how to spot the signs and what you can do to help Self-harm can take lots of physical forms, including cutting, burning, bruising, scratching, hair-pulling, poisoning and overdosing. There are many reasons why children and young people try to hurt themselves. And once they start, it can become a compulsion. That's why it's so important to spot it as soon as possible and do everything you can to help. Self-harm isnâ€™t usually a suicide attempt or a cry for attention. Instead, itâ€™s often a way for young people to release overwhelming emotions. Itâ€™s a way of coping. So whatever the reason, it should be taken seriously.
