The event has passed.

Join us as we host another Parent Information event. Understanding the rights of Children and Young People in Education can be challenging. The Options Autism schools in Scotland would like to welcome you to a presentation by Iain Nisbet, one of Scotland’s top Lawyers in Education Law.

After a brief introduction to Options Autism, Iain will lead a presentation on Additional Support entitlements in Scotland and how to access them. Topics include the 2004 Additional Support for Learning Act, Individual Education Plans, Co-ordinated Support Plans, Placing Requests, and more. Following the presentation there will be the opportunity for a Q&A session with Iain and the leaders from the Options Schools, plus a tour of Closeburn House School. The event is open to parents and representatives from advocacy and support groups. If your child is experiencing difficulty in receiving a full-time education that understands and supports their particular needs and strengths, this event will be of benefit to you.
