Education Otherwise: England and Wales gives support and information to families whose children are being educated out of school or who are considering home-based education. There are local groups, individual contacts and information leaflets. Education Otherwise can also advise a parent whose child has learning difficulties. If asked at an early stage, they can represent a parent against whom the local authority is taking action on the grounds that a pupil is not receiving a suitable education out of school. Written requests for information should be accompanied by an SAE.
