Education must be one of the most important issues to address for people with
hidden impairments. There has been so much change within UK education services
to provide inclusive education for all! Enabling disabled people to participate
within mainstream schooling and participating within society as an equal.
However many people with hidden impairments may not feel their needs are
recognised or appropriate support provided to enable them to participate within
mainstream education. So this page is design to provide some resources that
maybe useful for people trying to establish more appropriate education for
themselves or their children with hidden impairments. (I perhaps should use the
terms like "children with special education needs" however I personally don't
like the term "special needs"). Surely we are all people with different needs
and perhaps all members of society should have their own "individual education
plan" and not highlight some as being for "Special Needs". That would really be
equality! As all members of society are different and have different needs.
