Support SEND Kids has been overwhelmed by the positive response to our launch of the Noddy No-nonsense Guide to SEN Law. We are now delighted to introduce the ‘Disability Law in Education No-nonsense guide’. This will allow SEND families to understand the relationship between SEN and Disability law. It gives families answers to the top questions on Disability law in schools, such as when and where the law applies and how to work with the schools to make reasonable adjustments and avoid other types of discrimination.

Authors, Mandy Aulak, Sean Kennedy both founders of Talem Law have worked for many years in Disability Law in Education. They work with parents of children and young persons with special educational needs and disabilities. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to guiding parents through the process of getting the right outcomes for their children. Mandy and Sean say that they have shared their knowledge and experience because they are passionate about creating true equality and inclusion of children and young persons in education.

Disability Law in Education No-nonsense Guide covers (at very high level and only with respect to Education):
• The Equality Act 2010 .
• The Disability Regs 2010.
• Equality Act 2010 Guidance.

Our aim is to introduce the relevant legal framework along with the associated advice, guidance and case law, however, the Guide is not intended to be a substitute for direct consideration of the legal materials and is not specific legal advice.
