Obtaining a Statement of Special Education Need
A tough job, but members have found the following of help:

Rathbone Special Education Advice - this website is currently being updated, but their Special Education Advice Line should be able to help on a number of issues. In the past they have offered a range of documents as well as a "pack" to help obtain a statement. Rathbone Special Education Advice
Or Telephone 0800 917 6790
2   Link   Access to Disability Living Allowance
Access to Disability Living Allowance
Cerebra, who support children & young people with brain injuries, have produced an excellent guide to accessing the DLA. There is a short test, or you can download their weightier document (allow a minute or two for it to download).

This is probably one of the best guides that we have seen for this sort of application & with just a little interpretation in a KS context should prove a tremendous help.
3   Link   Help with Childcare
Some parents in the KSA will require childcare within their own home.

Childcare Approval Scheme
As of April 2005 a government scheme was introduced which enabled parents to get some financial support to help pay for their employment costs, when employing an approved nanny.

Employer Supported Childcare Voucher.
Under the childcare approval scheme (April 2006) families may receive financial support by using employer-supported childcare vouchers, which will exempt parents from paying Tax & NIC on the first £55 per week or £243 per month of their childcare costs

This may not apply to most members, but this UK Government set of help-sheets may just have the answer you are looking for: Living with Disability factsheet
