Special Educational Needs Tribunal Work (SENDIST)

 

You may be in dispute with your child's Local Authority (LA) about your child's Educationa Health Care Plan (EHCP). You may be in dispute about the need for your child to have SLT or the frequency and nature of the SLT that the LEA have agreed to provide.

 

For any SENDIST report, formal assessment of the child's speech & language skills is necessary. Equally necessary and important is informal assessment.  This involves observing the child in their school - lessons and playtime -  as well as talking with teaching staff.  Informal assessment helps to identify the impact of their language difficulty on their social and emotional development as well as their ability to learn and show their learning.
