OnDemand: Exploring Reasonable Adjustments for SpLDs in Tribunals and Family Courts

It is not surprising that people with Specific Learning Differences often struggle with the demands of court and tribunal hearings - presented by Melanie Jameson.

Course Description

They will need to process language-based information rapidly and accurately, sustain their attention and cope with an avalanche of detailed information in what is known as the ‘court bundle’. Unfortunately, coping with court and tribunal hearings relies on just those skill areas that are often compromised in the SpLD population. However, support is available through the provisions of the Equality Act 2010 – but how do you go about obtaining it? This session will look at appropriate ‘reasonable adjustments’ and various forms of human support, as well as how to clue up your lawyer. We shall also explore drawing up supporting documentation.

In addition, Melanie will flag up official judicial guidance which covers the whole family of SpLDs, and direct us to resources both for court-users and for justice staff.
