Navigating your way through your legal rights in the Education System and finding the support your child is entitled to after meningitis can be a daunting process.
This event will look at the type of support your child could receive and the legal rights in England, covering from 0-25 years. (We plan to run similar events from the devolved nations during the year, based on the individual legal systems.)
Our Keep Connected - Let's Talk About Meningitis and Education session will focus on:
- Who qualifies for support with education;
- How to get support with education;
- Evidencing need;
- Common terminology;
- Impact of Covid-19.
