Special school system

Hi, I'm just after some generalised info if anyone has the time to help me out smile Our special needs seven year old is in special school in Australia, he has a chromosome deletion with global delays and mental impairment.

I have right of abode in the UK as my mother is British, and we are contemplating a move, but I am of course wondering what the special needs education system is like over there. Are kids mostly able to attend special schools or is it mostly mainstreaming with teacher aide support?

I am hoping that a child having SN doesn't affect their right to come under my right of abode, so far I can't see anything indicating that it does.

It's just pie in the sky thoughts at this stage, but you have to start somewhere right!? ;)

Thanks! smile

Hi

If you want general information about the UK system you could look at the websites for IPSEA and SOS SEN. But generally you'd probably do better posting your inquiry on the main special needs thread.
