dc.description.abstract The professional files kept on ESN (S) children contain self-contradictory justifications for school placements; damaging social stereotyping; moral evaluation of parents; professional procedures involving circularity of thought, and attempts by professionals to protect themselves from the type of abuse to which they subject the children and their parents. On the basis that confidentiality offends both quality of information and basic human rights, the abolition of such confidential or secret files is demanded. en
