If you are on benefits ring Levenes - special education law specialists. They'll handle it for you wink

google levenes solicitors - they are very, very good. No parent would want to send a child back to a school that neglected to notice their 8 year old had 2 broken bones! The LA are taking advantage of your vulnerability so a solicitor on your side should even up the discussion a little.

Hi i have been trying for days now to get hold of "Levenes" and unsuccessfully i can say being told that somebody will ring me and they have not!! they suggested maybe i could find somebody else as they are extremely busy i found this strange as i cant even just speak to somebody to see if i have a chance.Anymore suggestions on what i can do he said i will just have to wait but ive been physically drained through doing the runs and spent 2 days in bed as unable to move i really do need help anybody???? :-(
