Our team will help you to obtain all of the records and data held regarding your child from both the school and the Local Authority. They will provide initial advice and help to prepare for your case. They may help to clarify which professional assessments are required and provide information about the Special Educational Needs processes and Legislation.
We have successfully supported thousands of families through the process of gaining appropriate provision. Our own children also have SEN and we fully understand the emotional, financial and practical difficulties you may experience. We have over 95% success rate in SEND Tribunal Appeals and in most appeals we gain agreement without
the need for a hearing.
We can help you to ensure that all evidence is presented clearly, with the application of current Legislation; and guide you through the changing options and possibilities which may arise
‘School Search’ :-If you are not sure which school may be appropriate to suit your child’s needs we can provide a list of possible Schools and other alternatives which take into account the information you provide.
If you need support with a difficult meeting such as an ‘Annual Review’ or ‘Transfer Review’ we can advise and help you to prepare or attend with you. We have had great success in Formal Mediation meetings which may gain resolution without a SEND appeal.
Our staff have extensive experience of the SEN process and of working with Local Authorities as well as schools either with you or on your behalf.
If you have a proposed or final Education Health & Care Plan (EHCP) we can provide you with a report to advise on its legality and the value of the content, or re-write the document to include all suggested amendments.
We work closely with specialist Educational Solicitors and can seek further advice or refer if we feel that this is required.
