Where can I get advice on managing my appeal?
I am appealing my daughter's placement named on her EHC plan, and she has had an independent Educational Psychologist (EP) Psych assessment arranged by her solicitor. TheEP discussed my daughter with the placement, and as a result, the LA has offered a different (unsuitable) placement. The EP has destroyed our case. Surely, she should not have shared any information with any person connected with the LA, and she is acting on behalf of my daughter?
