Transferring statements


 Share

Recommended Posts

Oh now there's a can of worms! I've had experiences both positive and negative. Presumably, if he/she has a Statement, it will eventually need to change to an Education, Health and Care Plan so the Local Authority might want to do that sooner rather than later.

 

IPSEA has some information here: https://www.ipsea.org.uk/what-you-need-to-know/changing-an-ehc-plan/transfer-of-plans

 

I'd recommend that the parent contacts the Information, Advice and Services Team (used to be called Parent Partnership) as soon as possible, you can find details here: http://www.iassnetwork.org.uk/find-your-iass/

You're welcome. Just from experience, make sure you address anything you send to a named person, keep a record of when it's sent, who you've spoken to and chase things up if you (or parents) don't hear anything. Local Authorities are completely swamped at the moment and unfortunately, those who shout the loudest tend to get heard.

Yes, you've been doing it too long, like me! The parents are lucky to have you. If you need to find support groups and information for parents when their child has had a diagnosis, Contact a Family have a great resource http://www.cafamily.org.uk/medical-information/conditions/

The charity IPSEA is also great for giving parents free legal advice about their rights https://www.ipsea.org.uk/
