I have appealed against the refusal of an EHCP for my 17 year old (ASD & PDA) which has been listed for hearing in January 2016. I have been told (by a charity) that I need to obtain an EP report as I have "no evidence"? However, the EPs that I have approached are not available until February 2016, so too late. Also, I am told it will cost up to £1,000 for a report, which concerns me, as my 17 year old, has dropped out of education, and may well refuse to co-operate in any event? Any advice would be much appreciated.
