School can be an amazing place for our children to grow, explore and develop. However, too often our children with special needs are not adequately catered for. Their needs are not met and they end up failing causing their self esteem to plummet.

This is an easy-to-read, no nonsense guide to getting results that matter. Encouraging schools to produce happy, motivated, free thinkers.
