The 2014/15 edition of Which School? for Special Needs has now been published, and we’re pleased to introduce an excellent collection of articles, school profiles, directory details and essential information for all those involved in the special educational needs sector.

The 23rd edition of this long-standing guidebook contains a comprehensive directory of independent and non-maintained schools and colleges in the UK that provide services for children and young adults with sensory or physical impairment; learning difficulties; social, emotional and behavioural difficulties; and autistic spectrum disorders.

It features full and double-page profiles of leading special schools and useful information on groups, associations and charities serving the special needs sector. The book also includes a directory of maintained special needs schools.

We also aim to highlight the latest news and initiatives from the sector in the editorial section and I am particularly pleased with the high quality of editorial this year.

We asked Claire Dorer, chief executive of the National Association of Independent Schools and Non-maintained Special Schools, to write the foreword again after her insight piece in the 2013/14 edition; she provides an update on Government reforms of SEN legislation. Douglas Silas, of Douglas Silas Solicitors, contributed a fantastic piece which also focuses on SEN reforms and asks the question: “So what now?”

We are also pleased to include articles from Hesley Group, Options Group, the RNIB, Ruskin Mill Trust, The Percy Hedley Foundation, I CAN charity, and Riverston School in London. I will be placing selected editorial online at www.specialneedsguide.co.uk, where you will also find updated school profiles and a searchable directory.
