Do I have a choice which SLT works with my ds?

My LA have arranged for an ex-NHS, now independent, SLT to support ds, as per his statement. This includes weekly 1-1s.

I'm not happy as she was the first SLT to see him approx 2 years ago, and declined to assess him as she decided after 5 mins that he needed no help. Her 'report' was 5 lines long. I think I posted about it at the time, but I've namechanged many times since!

I made a complaint to her head of department at the time.

Can I refuse?

Well technically you can't refuse but you may be able to persuade that there has been a relationship break down with this professional and that for the best outcome for your ds it is essential that you have a relationship based on trust and honesty which will be difficult now with this particular person.

If they say tough, bide your time, collect evidence, put in a complaint and request another.
