Hi

I need a good SEN solicitor. Basically my DC Has a statement for ASD/ADHD. Not coping in mainstream.LEA agree he needs specialist but they have no ASD provision of their own apart from one school which is for low functioning . They are not trying to put him in that school but they have mentioned an EBD unit which is completely unsuitable as he is not EBD at all and it could not meet some of his other needs. We want an Asd residential school which is in their Local Offer but they will probably fight on cost grounds. So I am preparing for battle!

I need recommendations for a good SEN solicitor. I am thinking Douglas Silas possibly but would appreciate other recommendations too

Sinclairs Law specialise in SEN law. I am a SENCO at a private school in Cardiff and I've worked with them numerous times. They are fab. They work all over the country too. Type them in to google. Good luck!
