My LA state 'The school reports that there is currently no healthcare plan in place, no issue has been raised by any of the teachers or by Mrs Mum'

wth does this mean? That has no EHCP? or?? He's been put on a pathway plan, the LA has written to me to inform me and informed me with have a case officer. School has started the plan and requested a one page profile and filled in some info ' to start the process'

Or does it not mean this at all? Does it mean the school are not aware of any health issues? I have been phoned twice this term from school to take him to A&E so someone somewhere must have released he needed hospital as he sure as hell doesn't know my mobile number. He has authorised absenses on record for routine SN type apps at hospital (we are talking close to one every two months for two years +.

Is this bloke just yanking my chain? The whole response is full of how amazingly normal and so very clever. Shame that he told me today we lived in Bognor, don't even live in that county....

Also what is STT? SAP? Statatory assessment process or school action plus?

Another one. hes on the alert program, but not every day on a regular basis. Has anyone got any links on how often it should be done?

Also DS 7 is being asked how he feels. If he say ok then nothing gets done! He should be helped to know when he is running fast!! How the hell will he know?

It sounds like it means what it says - they haven't got a plan relating specifically to health in place because your dc doesn't have any health problems so far as they know. I wouldn't have thought a couple of visits to A&E would really count as health issues, they are concerned with problems that are related to education. For things like appointments with SALTs and OTs, you are better off having these classified as educational anyway.

What are you going to the tribunal about? What plan has the school started? Pathway planning usually relates to older children leaving care AFAIK, which I assume doesn't apply to your dc.

SAP is usually school action plus. Don't know about STT - senior teacher team???

They LA is required to get the child's views under the tribunal rules. Tribunals do realise that children don't necessarily accept or recognise that they have SEN, in fact I doubt that they pay that much attention unless the child is saying that there is no way on earth that he will go to school or something similar.

It's a tribunal against a nil. Pathway plan in our case is the new school action / school action plus. Ot have been into school repeatedly to give recommendations. He gets weekly slt for 12 weeks at school. So maybe this part doesn't matter anyway

When you goto tribunal the Judge might say there and then OK lets make this a statement/EHC plan and ask if you have a working document in place for either a statement or a EHC plan. Is the tribunal asking the LA that maybe? So the LA are saying no working document for healthcare plan as none in place whereas the NIL usually becomes the working document if none in place in the old statement system. Not sure really and just guessing - ring them and ask what is meant?

You might find it helpful to speak with someone from IPSEA who are great for helping decipher this sort of information and guide you on your rights and also how to go about the appeal to give you the best chances of the desired outcome.

Ipsea are looking for a volunteer to represent me. It's all getting very messy. I think the la tatic of delay may put them at a disadvantage now. I have the possibility of ipsea and ds genetics back in plus a long list of ot recommendations and my ep assessment that the school grades and his skills don't match up.

Don't worry too much about your ds' views. My dd apparently told the LA that she didn't want help from any professionals (I still think this is untrue!), yet the Judge awarded all the SLT and OT that we were asking for.
