Just £25 will help us to get a family the educational support their child needs

With the help of the NAS, Julie went to tribunal three times over the next six years. Eventually, Richard got his assessment of needs and was placed in a specialist school for children with Asperger syndrome.

We were given help by an NAS education advisor. The lady was just wonderful. She was advising us all the time. She was always at the end of a telephone. She listened to us endlessly and she supported us all the way. She held our family together to be honest, says Julie.

I can’t tell you how wonderful things are now. He’s settled into school, he’s really into his LEGO and he’s making excellent progress ... If we had to say ‘thank you’ now for the rest of our lives, we would never be able to thank the NAS enough!
