Avocet will undertake an assessment that is focused on the child’s individual needs as well as the functioning of the family system, enabling the child to come to life as a person for members of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST). The information contained within Avocet reports will be evidence based and objective based on the factual information provided by various parties and our knowledge of the child’s disability will be enhanced by up to date research where relevant.
