Matt Keer

Matt Keer is a parent of two profoundly deaf teenagers. After many years in mainstream and maintained specialist school settings, his children are now thriving in a non-maintained special school for the deaf. Matt and his family have spent over a decade wrestling with the English SEND system – a journey that has taken them through two appeals to the SENDIST Tribunal, complaints to Ofsted, questions in Parliament, and has thrown up some exceptionally good and spectacularly dire experiences of inclusion. Matt writes for the Special Needs Jungle website, and he also helps other parents navigate the SEND system.
