Our team; our resources – here for you

The Good Schools Guide brings together the largest collection of data, information and advice about special educational needs of any organisation in the UK. It is authoritative, up-to-date and written from the inside – by parents for parents.

Many of the Good Schools Guide Education Consultants team are parents of children with special educational needs and disabilities. Click here for a list of our consultants and their specialisms.

While our SEN specialist consultants may not have personal experience of every educational need, they are vastly experienced and understand how hard it can be to get your child’s difficulties identified, acknowledged and then adequately supported. They understand the stresses of wrestling with local authorities, getting funding and finding the best possible school to give your child the opportunities he or she deserves. They have personal experience of taking local authorities to Tribunal, and attending school exclusion panels. They can tell you how to obtain specialist reports and can help you to decipher and use to your advantage those you have received. And they can help you to make the difficult decision about whether your child would be best placed in a mainstream or specialist school.

How we can help

Our consultants are experienced in dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language problems, autistic spectrum disorder, ADD/ADHD, learning difficulties, disability, mental health problems, behavioural disorders, post-adoption issues, school exclusions, global delay, sensory impairments, genetic conditions … you name it, we’ve helped clients with it.

Gifted and talented children also need additional support – we understand that too. You will find that our consultants understand what you are dealing with without the need for exhausting explanations. They also know the schools, understand the system and can lay their hands on all available information.

Bringing up children – whatever the rewards and pleasures – is never easy and no parents need the additional stresses of battling over a child’s SEN provision. Let us take the strain.
