A range of Educational Services are offered to parents, young people, schools and colleges.
I can assist with the identification of amendment in sections B and F of an Education, Health and Care plan when in the draft stage, review a finalised plan and advise on making an application for appeal to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST). I usually support via email or telephone to keep fees low. This means I can also support parents who live outside Norfolk.
I am happy to assist in pre-tribunal mediation and dispute resolution meetings where parents do not wish to attend unsupported. It is always hoped that an amicable resolution to the disagreement is found without the requirement to lodge an appeal with SENDIST.
As a Dyslexia Specialist, with an Assessment Practicing Certificate, I have at my disposal a range of assessment tools which cover:
Assessing for exam Access Arrangements
I hold the necessary level of qualification to complete 'Form 8s' for Access Arrangements in line with JCQ regulations. I am usually commissioned by schools and colleges directly. Parents wishing to commission me privately would need to check with their test centre that they will accept an externally written Form 8
Teaching Assistants Training
Teaching Assistants play a vital role in our schools so it is important that they are well-trained for their role. The Maximising the Practice of Teaching Assistants training (MPTA) follows on from the Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants training (MITA)
Professional Development Training
I offer a range of training to both parent groups and schools, covering Statutory Duties in Education. These range from two hour 'Short Bites' to all-day training.
