It shouldn't be this hard

Emma Parker's son James has ADHD and autism. It took four years of fighting to get him a place in a specialist school.

Emma’s son James is a bright young man, who also has ADHD and autism. With the right support in school, James will be able to thrive and learn. Sadly, Emma had to fight for four years to get James a place in a specialist school.

There are more than 2,000 children in England with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) awaiting provision for their education.

After years of damaging cuts, schools are reporting losses in staff and the equipment necessary to support children like James. It’s a scandal that the Government isn’t fulfilling their basic duty: making sure schools have the resources to support children with SEND.

Every child deserves a chance to go to school. Every child deserves a place where they can build relationships, be happy and learn in a supportive, inclusive environment.

Stand with children like James and demand that Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, to act now and properly fund education for children with special needs.
