Families take legal action against SEND budget cuts

The Guardian reports that parents in England are taking collective legal action again local authorities who are cutting their special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) budgets. The article speaks to several parents of autistic children, some of whom are now being home-educated due to a lack of suitable educational support. The report suggests that the main services facing cuts are transport for pupils with SEND, speech and language therapy and teaching assistants.
