Hi is there anybody out there who has been in the same situation as us? We had our son identified with dyslexia aged 8 after 2 years of being told by the school he had dyslexic tendencies. We had to pay for the assessment ourself through dyslexia action and the result was severe dyslexia and we were advised to fight any refusal to assess for a Statutory Assessment because our son requires specialist intervention. We have contacted a local private dyslexic school and we have been called for an interview which is encouraging as they have seen the Ed Psyh report and letter refusing the SA and the grounds. We are aware that our local authority do send children to this school and also pay for transport. Our son is on school action plus and the interventions that are in place at school are good but he is not progressing. We have appealed the refusal to assess and are now building are case. Has anyone been through the same process and what was the outcome. Have you any advice. Even if we do not win our case at least I know that we tried our best for our child and that the school may step up to give him the education he deserves.
