      Hi I had a ehc pathfinder plan. Had been told that my statutory rights were protected. Of course they are not. Took 2mths for them to agree a conversion. First contacted council in April 2013 my son is high functioning has had a break down is on anti depressants he’s 9. Has been at school for a year. Whole EHC is a joke. Council has free reign. Even contacted dept. Of education. No help. New plan underway. No “smart” outcomes. In fact ed. Phys. And autism ADV lady both said he didn’t need speech and language therapy!!!!! Unbelievable! Why is no one accountable!
