If you feel the support your child is getting is inadequate, or your child is being unfairly treated because of their disability, you may wish to request a statutory assessment or Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment from the NHS in Gloucestershire, run in partnership with Gloucestershire County Council.
Depending on the outcome of that assessment, you may wish to take further steps or appeal the decision about the level of care your child is entitled to. We can work with you and your child through a resolution process that focuses first and foremost on getting the right solution in place to meet your child’s needs. If you’re not satisfied with how your child’s case is being handled, we can pursue a satisfactory outcome on your behalf with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal.
We’ve supported parents with children living with, for example:
- Physical disability
- Mental health conditions
- Intellectual disability or acquired brain injury
- Vision or hearing impairment
- Behaviour disorders
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
