  • Can anyone explain how parents start the EHCP process for children below school age? There are many parents with children, who have conditions identified at birth or in their early years, that would find mainstream education challenging or impossible.

  • Does anyone have any views what the starting point in weeks is for SEP i.e. speech and language or occupational therapy for a tribunal where independent witness reports support provision much longer than 38 weeks (in relation to Code of Practice 9.55) to meet communication and interaction needs but the tribunal uses a starting point of 38 weeks because it is a school year? note: the child has been home schooled for a year

  • A friend's child with complex needs and severe autism has been allocated a wholly unsuitable secondary school by the LEA. His teachers and all assessments to date support that he needs a specialist school. The parents have appealed to tribunal and now being supported by lawyers who have told them they need to obtain statements from 3 expert witnesses (an educational psychologist, an occupational therapist and a Speech and language therapist), which comes at significant cost and also means the hearing will need to be delayed (it is already not until October). This could mean having to homeschool him, with parents taking extended leave from work.

    Is this correct? What are the risks of not getting that kind of expert support?
    Are there good sources of support available on an urgent basis?

    Are there any options for alternative provision/support to be provided pending tribunal outcome?
