 English school children

The National Autistic Society (NAS) says it is saddened but unsurprised by the poor provision and low standards revealed in Ofsted’s review of special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities, published on 14 September 2010.

Mark Lever, Chief Executive of The National Autistic Society (NAS) said:

Ofsted’s important report exposes a number of key failings within the SEN system and crucially recognises that children with complex needs, such as autism, are not getting the help they need in the classroom.

A great many parents of children with autism have to fight huge battles to have their child’s needs recognised, understood and met. We hear terrible stories of parents who have their educational concerns dismissed. They are told their child is simply naughty or even that they have made up their diagnosis.

So many parents say a statement is a valuable and essential tool in helping to fight for their child’s rights and to hold schools to account if they fail to provide appropriate support.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach for children with autism, who have very specific needs. We urge the Government to consider these in the forthcoming Green paper on SEN. With the right support at the right time, children with SEN can and do flourish at school.
