Has anyone used LANC in Horsham?

Morning
My son has been diagnosed with ADHD and social communication disorder via the paediatrician and following assessments with a clinical psychologist. It has taken 3 years to get to this point, nothing new there! He is now 10 in his final year at primary school.
School say he won't get a EP assessment through them because he isn't 'bad enough' and not to bother going for an EHCP. He has a v sketchy ILP and I think is getting v little support at school. iQ testing indicates he should be top 10% in his class but they are happy with him bumming around the lower end of the group.
So he hasn't been assessed for any co-morbid conditions and we are now looking at getting a more thorough assessment so we know exactly what we are dealing with before we consider looking at medication etc.
Has anyone been to LANC in Horsham or have any recommendations local to Mid Sussex / Surrey?
Any help gratefully received as feeling v isolated unsure of our next steps.

Hi I wouldn't recommend Lanc. First it was managed Dr Kewely who has now retired, previously there was a Dr S Perecherla who was working there and was very good, look for him online.
