4 Education Issues

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.
