If a child or young person has special educational needs (SEN), learning difficulties or disabilities, it can be harder for them to learn than for other children at that age. Individual needs can vary hugely from learning difficulties to social, emotional or health challenges. Meanwhile sensory or physical needs, or communication problems, can prohibit learning and developmental growth in other areas. Specific support catered to your child’s needs can significantly enhance the effectiveness of education.
As a highly-qualified and experienced specialist, consultant and author, Dr Susanna Pinkus is our expert in special educational needs. She works closely with parents and children, as well as with schools and allied professionals, to facilitate a bespoke package of support in areas such as selecting an initial school placement, enabling a successful transition between primary and secondary school, and applying for an Education Health Care Plan. Each case is carefully assessed and support can be provided on a short-term or long-term basis, depending on the needs of the child, and via Skype and phone as well as through face-to-face meetings.
