Does my son qualify for IEP or ECHP?

posted 5 years 2 months ago
Hi All,

Just looking for a bit of advice.

I have an 8 year old son who was diagnosed with ADHD in Dec of last year, he is now medicated but has a few other additional needs also.

He has a Visual Processing disorder, working memory issues, he has also previously been under the care of OT until recently due to dexterity and proprioceptive issues and is currently under a physio for hyper mobility, requiring insoles in his shoes.

I have previously asked his SENco about an IEP and EHCP due to his additional needs and was told that he didn't qualify due to his not being on their SEN register. They have done nothing since diagnosis at all.

Am I right in thinking that he would actually qualify for at least an IEP now that he has been diagnosed? I just feel like the school have not been helpful in explaining and guiding me through this process at all and that now they have a diagnosis they have just left him?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
