Our SN area is not a substitute for expert advice. While many Mumsnetters have a specialist knowledge of special needs, if they post here they are posting as members, not experts. There are, however, lots of organisations that can help - some suggestions are listed here. If you've come across an organisation that you've found helpful, please tell us. Go to Special needs chat, Parents with disabilities, SN teens, SN legal, SN children, SN recommendations.

Why are there now both special needs education AND a special educational needs topics?

My ds has some special education needs (he is dyslexic). I would therefore post in the education section for advice about his SEN (and have got some great advice there in the past). My nephew and niece have severe learning disabilities. Their educational needs (and options) are radically different. I imagine the new area is a request from parents of children with disabilities to have a space to discuss thier specific educational needs/experiences, following on for other discussions. So an ofshoot of the special needs board, whereas the SEN section is an offshoot of education discussions.

I can't really see why it is a problem. If it's not used I imagine it will be removed.
