We believe that disabled children and young people and/or those with special educational needs (SEN) should have the same rights as their peers, including the right to an education that helps them to reach their full potential.
The Special Educational Consortium (SEC) is a group of organisations who protect and promote the rights of disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs. Our membership includes the voluntary and community sector, education providers and professional associations. SEC believes all children and young people have a right to a high-quality education which meets their needs and enables them to reach their full potential.
Disabled children and young people and/or those with SEN have the right to have their views heard, and these views are vital to the development of an inclusive society. SEC identifies areas of consensus and works with the Department for Education, members of Parliament and other decision-makers when there are proposals for changes in policy, legislation, regulations and guidance that may affect disabled children and young people and those with SEN.
