You are here:
< All Topics

A statement of special educational needs is a written document which should detail a child’s individual special educational needs and the specific provision which the Education Authority will arrange to meet those needs.

The contents of a statement are legally binding. The wording of the statement should be clear and thorough. Parent’s/carers have a right to be involved in the drafting of the statement and to seek amendments before it is made final.

This can be a complex process, contact the Children’s Law Centre on 08088085678 or email: info@childrenslawcentre.org for advice.
