The parent-led movement  is highlighting the factors that lead to ‘school placement breakdown’, which is when a family has no choice but to remove their child from school as they cannot cope in the environment available to them.

The campaign has met with Josepha Madigan, the Minister for Special Education, and plans to hold a protest at the Department of Education in the coming months.

Lourdes Sanchez lives in North Kildare, and is Co Chair of Not Ok in School.

She is the parent of three children, the middle of whom lives with a rare genetic disorder, and Autism

She has been speaking to Kildare Today.
