I'm not an EP but you might find this useful.

DS seems to have had cognitive assessment (such as WISC). You don't need age equivalents, tribunals usually use standard scores, percentiles and the description. Extremely low means the same thing as 'profound' (0.3 and 0.6). Borderline, impaired, mild, moderate and severe are all clustered around the 1st to 2nd percentile and so the t-scores provide better detail of the severity of need.

What are you appealing at tribunal?

Please post on the SN board that I have linked below as that is where EPs hang out.

btw, If a child has a percentile score of, say 5%, that means that 95% of children his/her age will have scored better, and 4% will have scored less iyswim or thereabouts.

What assessment was it?

(I would also send that letter in with a formal complaint tbh. It is outrageous that the EP isn't sharing with you that kind of information. What control freakery planet is she on? And she is 'punishing' you for going to tribunal as is your legal right to do so by withholding essential information, that might have affected whether or not you WENT to tribunal).

I do think the tribunal should know about this behaviour.

Put that in writing to the EP right away to confirm that is what she said and then take a copy with you to tribunal to 'read out'.

That is appalling behaviour.

Oh, and repost here as this is where the tribunal knowledgeable people hang out

No we off to tribural Tuesday and psychologist said because we going there she wasn't exsplaining but I been told u can work what age he's at from reading all the scores so I'm trying to find out what age he is at all his scores seem to be low

Goodness me, did the EP not explain them in the report?
