Does anyone know where I can get this done?
A couple of dc's teachers have commented about the short amount she gets done.
Welfare officer was told in November, but it appears not to have been fololwed up.

Hi, has she been checked for hypermobility? This was common amongst our slower writers. Sorry I'm unsure about where exactly you can get the assessment done, what do the school suggest?

School haven't suggested anything, they'd completely for gotten about it.
She is currently off with anxiety related stuff so I'm trying to organise things myself, the school is not particularly helpful.

One teacher should be in charge of all correspondence relating to exam concessions like extra time, scribes etc. It's often but not always the SENCO.

Ring the school, find that teacher and ask about which assessments your dd needs to fulfil the exam board's criteria for concessions. It's all based on timings, so you need to be on the ball to get something into place pre GCSEs.

This article from last April is useful as a general guide to the process, as long as there haven't been any changes to the system since then. www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2016/04/11/extra-time-in-exams-your-child-may-be-eligible_n_7321738.html
