Description

An essential handbook for parents, carers and educators of young people with special needs, this companion volume to the highly acclaimed Children with Special Needs covers the assessment of and procedure for young adults. Further and higher education institutions have now been taken out of LEA jurisdiction, and this book provides a detailed guide to the most recent developments in law and practice, including how to approach and identify the problem, the difference in dealing with those with or without previous statements, the legal duties of the institutions, and how to deal with the transfer from school.

Reviews

'This new book is a comprehensive, yet commendably condensed, overview of the situation... it is sure to find a place on the bookshelves of parents, FE College staff and care agencies. I would like to think that LEA's and the Further Education Funding Council will also use the book to inform their thinking and practice in this important area... should become an essential vade mecum for all involved with young adults who have special needs.'
