Reply To: EHCP SLT report

Ruth Lo

Hello, I have not heard of this either and am quite concerned about it. How can they know what should be funded without an assessment? Without an EHCP the provision is not legally binding, and until they get a letter they are depriving the parents of their right of appeal (as soon as they get a refusal to assess letter they can start mediation/appeal, perhaps this is what is coming?) Obviously it is up to the parents, but they may want to take legal advice, there are some charities that do this for free/low cost, including IPSEA and SOSSEN, or they could contact your local SENDIASS? Sorry it is such a muddle, Ruth
