It is fair to say that each child is special and unique regardless of their needs. However supporting a child with special educational needs can place tremendous stress and pressure on a family which can ultimately lead to a relationship breakdown.

The Childrens Act 1989 requires the welfare of the children to be considered of paramount importance. It is therefore important that the individual needs of all children in every case are understood and if a child of the family has a special educational needs it is crucial that the child’s diagnoses is fully understood. It is also important to be aware of what strategies and support are in place to assist the child and in some circumstances the immediate family.
