    Hi @Shazza1986

    Thanks for your great question. Firstly, do you know for sure that the outcome was an issued EHCP? If so, you should be sent a copy of the EHCP when it is ready. Some of the processes are taking longer than usual but they should communicate this openly with you.

    Please feel free to get in contact with your local authority if you are not sure and it is more than 16 weeks from the request for assessment. You can find more information at https://www.ipsea.org.uk/what-happens-in-an-ehc-needs-assessment.

    I hope this helps but if we can do anything to support you further, please don't hesitate to let us know  :)

    Hi @Shazza1986

    Thanks for your response. I hear your frustrations. I am glad to hear things are going well with your son's diabetes team. In all honesty, it should be the educational psychologist you hear from. Are you on the multi-agency website where you can see the live updates from the other members (teachers and the educational psychologist, etc.) or is your application paper-based? Always here for you if you would like to discuss this further with us  :)

    Hi @Shazza1986

    Really pleased to hear you have received the educational psychologist report. That must be a relief! I hope it goes well speaking to them about the things that have changed. Hopefully, they will be able to ensure the plan accords to current needs if possible. Communication is good. Please feel free to keep us up to date if you would like to  :)
