Independent Parental Special Education Advice (IPSEA)

IPSEA is a volunteer-based organisation and many of the volunteers providing telephone advice and support at tribunals are themselves parents of children with special educational needs who have been helped by IPSEA in the past.

IPSEA offers free and independent advice on local authorities (LA) legal duties to assess and provide for children with special educational needs. Independent advice and information on special needs education, based on the law.

IPSEA's Advice Line is the number to call with any question or problem you have concerning your child's education.
