Applied Behavior Analysis FAQ
As Education Lawyers, we are often asked questions about the sometimes controversial subject of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
If your child has been diagnosed with Down’s syndrome, you’ll want to ensure they get the support they need to thrive at school.
Our Education Solicitors and Special Educational Needs Lawyers are very experienced at helping families in England and Wales ensure adequate provision is made for children and young people with Down’s syndrome.
For legal advice get in touch with our Education Lawyers.
As with any child, the education support a child/ young person requires will vary, as it will depend on what provision is required to meet their needs. For example, this could include:
Much of this may come over and above the provision that a mainstream school may be able to deliver from their resources. Therefore, a child/young person with Down’s syndrome may require provision to be arranged by the Local Authority through an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan. This is a legally enforceable document which specifies the level of help the child/young person requires in a clear, concise and understandable way for education providers and families.
The EHC Plan should give an accurate and detailed description of the child/young person’s education needs and the steps that should be taken to address them. For example, if the child has language difficulties, the EHC Plan may state that they require regular sessions with a qualified speech and language therapist.
