If anyone has had been in a tribunal against this firm, they are getting roasted today after tweeting about how they was laughing at a SEN family

Tweets have been removed. What did they say?

My LA seem to have taken their advice re the writing of professional reports

I never understand why people get in a flap about this firm because their arguments are bolleaux from what I can see.

As an aside it does bother me that a solicitor would set out to try to stop disabled children from getting what they are entitled to. There is a special place in hell for them, I think.

The twit has a Twitter feed on their website which is now down.

How are they managing to win tribunals though? Their arguments against ABA seem to be something like a lot of kids who do it continue to work on P scales. Which kind of ignores that it's not a tool for some children to succeed academically but to learn basic skills that they otherwise wouldn't.

There's a long thread on this on AIBU -

The trouble is that the tribunal apparently doesn't always think their arguments are bollocks, otherwise they wouldn't be in business. And they succeed to a great extent by being very aggressive, and by some iffy practices like serving loads of evidence at the last minute - though I've heard the tribunal is cracking down on that one now, thank goodness.

Augusta - I see. The thing I don't understand is why they specifically have an obsession about ABA? It seems most perculiar to me. There must be a personal agenda in there somewhere.

Obviously every case is different. Parents do need to be careful about ABA cases - they are more complex usually and you do have to have the evidence on the table. I think that obviously if they are fabricating lies then of course that will influence the outcome.

BS I mean ( I can think of a better name which can also be shortened to bs)
