Children with disabilities face informal exclusion every week

More than a fifth of children with disabilities are “falling through the net” and are being informally excluded from school, new research has found. Contact a Family interviewed 400 families of children with Special Educational Needs and disabilities, and found more than half had said their children had been excluded from school trips. More than 50 per cent also said teachers had asked them to collect their children during the school day because of staff shortages. One parent told Contact a Family that her son, who has Asperger Syndrome, was “put into isolation” during OFSTED visits. Does this chime with your own experience?  Start a forum discussion here.
