Re: “Child’s name and DOB”
I am writing to formally request an Education, Health and Care needsassessment for my son/daughter, child’s name.
Childs’ name has attended school name since starting date and is currently in year number.
Child’s name has the following difficulties (Give a brief outline of the child’sdifficulties, for example: Does the child have autism, dyslexia, ADHD, speechand language difficulties, social and emotional difficulties and since when?)
School provide child’s name with a high level of support but he/she is not making progress. I feel that child’s name needs an Education Health and Care needs assessment to enable his/her needs to be fully identified.
Please find attached my views as a parent/carer in support of my request.
