Meridian TV Special Needs update

This is an update on the Meridian TV items aired last week. There was so far been around 150 posts from parents, almost all who feel they have been let down by their LEAs. Meridian’s Christine Alsford writes at http://blogs.itvlocal.com/Meridian/2009/02/11/struggling-with-special-needs/

“We are planning a follow-up piece based around teenagers for later this week. So don’t forget to tune in – we’ll be posting the report on the website too. We are persevering with this because so many of you are telling us how worried you are about provision at secondary level, and voicing your concerns about children who have been excluded and are going to end up with no qualifications and an uncertain future. But we also want to try and put together a whole board of photos of as many people as possible who have contacted us about their situation. This is to try and show the full scale of the problem and the sheer number of people who have contacted us. Please can as many of you as possible e-mail to us either a scanned picture of yourself and your child with special educational needs or just of your child. Please be aware that these will be used in a forthcoming broadcast and on the web so you should be happy for you child’s image to be transmitted. Please label them carefully –we will not be using surnames, and we won’t be saying what area they come from. Please just give their age, their learning difficulty and Christian name. The e-mail address to send them to is specialneeds@itv.com Many Thanks -Christine Alsford”

*Update note – Meridian are updating their website so this is not available at the moment
