Education, Health and Care needs assessments
Janata Ali | 11.07.2019
Your child’s education will affect the rest of their life, so it’s vital they can access the teaching and support they need. If your child has special educational needs (SEN), there are positive solutions available. As specialists in this area of law, we can advise you and help ensure your local authority or school meets your child’s needs.
Your child might have difficulty accessing the education they need for a variety of reasons, such as complex special educational needs, lack of appropriate support, or being unable to attend a more suitable school that you’ve chosen.
In these circumstances, making sure your child has the best possible education can be time-consuming, stressful and emotionally exhausting. So you’ll want to be reassured you have positive options, and that a good solution can be found.
We have particular expertise in assisting children with moderate and complex special educational needs, and have a reputation for getting results quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. We have extensive experience securing therapy support and specialist school placements for children who have special educational needs. Whether you are at the early stages of making a request for an EHC needs assessment or about to appeal for a high-cost specialist school placement at an independent school, we can offer the expertise and support you need to achieve the outcome you want.
Although we only act for parents and families, some of our team have previously represented public sector organisations. This gives us valuable insight into how these bodies reach decisions, and how best we can challenge them on your behalf.
We have extensive experience of successfully assisting children with mild to moderate and severe learning difficulties but also highly complex, profound and multiple learning difficulties. With our experience and commitment, you can be confident we will resolve the issues you face, and secure the education your child needs for a more fulfilling future.
