Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I'm an adviser with JA and I will try to help you.
Please note the following:
Can you please post your question again?
For some reason, I cannot see it in the chat.
At what stage of it is your son? Completed?
If the Local Authority Special Educational Needs and Disability (LA SEND) Service decide that the child’s (or young person's) needs cannot be met from the help and support available from the current school or setting, they will issue an Education Health and Care (EHC) plan.
If the decision is that the plan is not needed, the Service will explain this decision.
Information and advice from the completed assessment will be used to write a proposed Additional School SEND Support Plan, which will include details of the extra help that should be available to help the child to learn and make progress.
At any point in the assessment process, the parents can talk to, or meet with, the EHC plan coordinator to discuss their concerns and a find a way forward.
Parents, carers and young people over the age of 16, can ask for mediation or dispute resolution to be provided with independent advice.
Parents and carers also have rights of appeal to the SEND tribunal at particular points in the EHC needs assessment process: information on making an appeal can be found on the gov.uk First Tier Tribunal website, at the following link: http://www.gov.uk/courts-tribunals/first-tier-tribunal-special-educational-needs-and-disability
I hope this information is helpful and I wish you the best.
Please do not hesitate to contact JA again if you need help and you may ask to speak with me directly if you wish.
You are welcome.
