Jennifer Quinn's daughter Eva is 5, and is looking forward to starting school. However, because she has autism and intellectual disabilities, she needs to go to a special school or at least be placed in a special class. But, because there is too few spaces and too many children with additional needs, she has been rejected by over 20 schools. Now, she is facing a fourth year of pre-school.
Jennifer got in touch with us as a part of our Give Them A Voice campaign, and we want to hear from you if you have a similar story. You can email the show: firstname.lastname@example.org.
