Researchers at the University of Edinburgh and University of Manchester have developed a short film to increase knowledge and awareness among parents and practitioners of new children’s rights legislation. The Education (Scotland) Act 2016 (commenced in January 2018) has provided children aged 12-15 years with Additional Support Needs (ASN) with independent rights regarding their education which are almost equivalent to those held by parents and young people, including the right to advice and information and to request particular types of assessment. This short film incorporates the perspectives of education practitioners, children and young people with ASNs and various other organisations including the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland and the president of the ASN Tribunal for Scotland. Please see attached a link to this short film.
