Child about to see Ed Psych but I don't understand the process

My son is due to see an educational psychologist next week. He is just turned nine and I am fully expecting them to say that he has ADHD and/or is autistic. However I don't understand the significance of statements or educational plans. We moved him to a Steiner school at Easter because he was struggling in mainstream; it is a tiny school with no SENCO and so they know nothing about the process and can't advise me (I was referred through my GP). Can he even have a statement if he is at an independent school? What questions about that aspect of things should I be asking the ed psych? Thanks for your help everybody.

Yes, he can have and education, health and care plan (children get these instead of statements now) at an independent school. If you want to know more about this you are probably best advised to look at the IPSEA website.
