This commentary discusses a number of cases from both the Scottish and English courts in which children with additional support needs in learning have sought remedies. City of Edinburgh Council v MDH [2011] CSIH 13 concerned a placing request made by parents of an autistic child. RO v East Riding of Yorkshire Council [2011] EWCA Civ 196 concerned attempts by parents to restore their child's “looked after” status in order to be able to access certain after-care provisions in the Children Act 1989, only to be met with the defence that the child was accommodated under the Education Acts which contained no after-care provisions.

Keywords:   Addition support needs for education, Autistic children, Placing requests, Looked after children, Child law versus education law
