Teenager with Anxiety and post 16 EHCP transition
Hi, I'm new to the group. My daughter is 15 and struggling with anxiety - fear of being on her own, locking doors, being on her own in the car to a point it is hindering her independance. She struggles with maintaining friendships as her peers are more mature. I am in the process of a transition EHCP which is late. So I would like to ask anyone if this anxiety should also be captured as a need. My concern is once she leaves secondary school (where she can talk to the teachers) how that works at her next stage. I am worried if I am missing anything else that should be considered at this transition point. The LA haven't suggested anything saying the school should do this and generally they have been unhelpful. So I'm a little stuck as to where I can get independent advice. Apologies for long post.
