my son went to a college overseen by the esfa in September 2017. He got a statement at 4 for asd and it was swapped to an ehcp whilst he was in secondary school. We told the college in the May about his needs and took in his ehcp/Ed psych reports/paediatric notes and waited...and waited...and waited. He has become very poorly and is not coping. There have been lots of trips to the doctors because of anxiety etc. I spend hours and hours every week organising him, which is extremely difficult as I am not in the lessons, no notes are made and he has no organisational skills or understanding of what work he is expected to do independently. The first local authority took from June to December to transfer his file. The second local authority took two months to establish it wasn’t in their remit. The dsa people “forgot” to write back to us to say it wasn’t them and to apply to the esfa directly. Etc etc. We had a needs report actually done in October 18 and we are still no further forward. He’s biting himself so much and crying that it seems cruel to allow him to continue even though he is desperate not to give up. I have now been told that the latest delay is because the esfa have never had to have a sen student assessment although the recommendations are very clear. He has a really high iq, loves what he’s chosen to do but there is no support and he’s not happy/calm/achieving his potential. Please please can anyone tell me where I stand legally, what can I do next?
