This is not a definitive list and while these reasons sound logical in some ways, they are not lawful. All parents are required to do is demonstrate that their child has special educational needs and it ‘may’ be necessary for special educational provision to be made for him or her in accordance with an EHC Plan. If it is clear to you that your child has special educational needs and it may be necessary for special educational provision to be made for them, the local authority should carry out an EHC needs assessment.
In our experience appeals to the Tribunal are successful if your local authority refuses to carry out an EHC needs assessment for a reason that does not apply the legal test. The Tribunal will always apply the law when deciding on these appeals.
If you have any questions relating to your child’s EHC needs assessment, please contact Janata Ali by email email@example.com or call on 020 8332 8635.
