Their own figures support a long view approach yet the LAs on the ground are being squeezed and or taking a adversarial approach to parents trying to give their children lifelong independence skills. Thank you for a succinct illustration Tania and Debby. Hannah x


Great and helpful collection of facts thank you!

Yes, let’s invest in creating independence early on.
Spiffing infogram indeed Tania

This was great to read – proves that investment in the early years not only saves money but improves quality of life for those with special needs. A great summary of fact that should steer educators in the right direction


Can I ask about your figures on incidence of mental health issues? I can’t find the reference in Gov doc. Most research shows far greater incidence in those with leArning disabilities and other SEN. Annie
