The Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST) is now part of the First Tier Tribunal.
It hears appeals from parents relating:
- to SEN issues, and
- claims by parents alleging disability discrimination by schools.
Here is SENDIST’s own guide to making a claim of disability discrimination.
IPSEA is a very useful source of help for parents in making appeals/claims.
Parents whose income is at or about the level of means tested benefits may be entitled to free legal help from a lawyer under legal aid in relation to SEN or disability issues and the SENDIST.
