Sources have revealed the Governments plans for a radical review of support for children with special needs, flexi parental leave and faster adoptions.
The plan details how new mums can opt to share their maternity leave with the baby's father.
They also aim to speed up the adoption process, allowing children to become settled into family life rather than staying with a temporary foster family. This in turn will benefit them later in life.
The flexible parental leave will enable new mums to return to work earlier if they wish and allocate some of their remaining maternity leave to the new dad.
The Government is planning a major overhaul of the system relating to those with special educational needs. A change of this type has not been seen for some 30 years. John Dickinson-Lilley welcomes these changes, saying "The current system is extraordinarily complex, leading to fraught experiences for deafblind and multi-sensory impaired children"
