I have just started as a SENCO in a private school (having previously been one in a state school in a different LA). Most of the parents pay for private occupational therapists and speech and language therapists if their child needs it. However, I am starting to get enquiries about their 'NHS' options. Can children who attend an independent school still access free therapy in this way? Does anyone know how I could go about it as in a state school I would just refer to the service through the LA. All advice welcome!
