Expert Witness Assessments for Tribunals

Age Range: 1-25 years

Designed for: Families

Our senior therapists use their expertise and experience to collate a thorough picture of the child’s needs. Through consultation with family, teachers and school staff, as well as other relevant professionals, they will build a picture of the young person’s strengths and needs, and identify the goals and effective provision for their Educational Health Care Plan.

Following the submission of the report, our therapist is available to support mediation or to sit as an expert witness in a tribunal hearing.
