Special seminars discussing changes in the law for the education of disabled children have been hailed a success by organisers.

Almost 100 parents, carers, and education and health professionals attended the events at Sheffield’s Hilton Hotel.

They were designed to tell people about what are being seen as the biggest reforms in 30 years to help disabled children and those with special educational needs.

Paces Sheffield chief executive Norman Perrin, who helped organise the meetings, said there was still more work to do but a solid start had been made.

“Complex legislative matters were explained by our speakers in a clear manner and our attendees actively engaged in the debates,” he said.
