Education Advocacy launches a new interactive map which collates the Department for Education s41, non maintained and independent special schools lists on one searchable map, to help struggling parents with their research to find the right school for their child.
The map showcases a range of valuable information such as, the location, type of school, and the type of specialist educational support provided at each.
With over 54 years of combined experience in SEN tribunal appeals, Education Advocacy knows first hand from its case work that parents struggle knowing where to begin looking to find the right school for their child.
Without having to visit several different websites, parents can now clearly find schools in their area that cater for the specific educational needs of their child. For example, autism, aspergers, dyslexia, social, emotional and behavioural needs and more.
Nigel Pugh, Managing Director at Education Advocacy says, “From experience we know that finding the correct school for a child with special educational needs can be a very challenging and time consuming process for parents.
There are many things to consider when going through the special educational needs process. We think that crawling the internet for hours shouldn’t be one of them. That is why we have been working hard to gather this information from all corners of the web to give parents one clear starting point, a base. Think of it as the ultimate directory, a digitalYellow Pages for Special schools!”
The free guide is available to use now on Education Advocacy’s website.
Education Advocacy will be updating the guide regularly throughout the year with new content, and more schools. This will ensure it remains accurate and up to date and welcomes feedback from parents, schools and users alike.
