Match Solicitors is proud to announce that we will be taking part in this year's Autism Show on 16 and 17 June at the ExCel Exhibition Centre in London.
In recent years, Match Solicitors has been heavily involved in issues surrounding autism and education, fighting hard to ensure that schools, colleges, universities and Local Authorities fulfil their legal obligations when it comes to making necessary allowances for pupils and students affected by autism.
Since our foundation in 2005, we have become established as one of the country's leading law firms with regard to Special Educational Needs (SEN), building a highly experienced team of lawyers, each of whom are experts in assisting children and young people, as well as their families, with SEN questions and any issues relating to Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP).
Spearheaded by Partner, Anita Chopra, our expert team works in close collaboration with parents and independent experts and specialises in reaching resolutions with Local Authorities and ultimately settling cases in the best interests of our clients. We're also very proud of our success rate when it comes to cases surrounding autism and special needs in general, as we're extremely adept at bringing cases to an amicable resolution.
One-to-One Clinics at the Autism Show
One of the most important parts of the national two-day event for us will be taking part in the special one-to-one clinics. People will be able to book sessions with one of our experts to seek some advice. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has legal questions relating to autism to book a session with one of our experts.
Our areas of expertise include the following (not exhaustive):
- the request and implementation of EHCPs
- the legalities and practicalities of preparing for a SEND appeal
- how best to achieve a positive outcome for an appeal
- how to ensure that correct provisions are in place for your child
- how to prepare for a mediation session
- how to conduct a Transfer Review
- how to prepare for an appeal at the Upper Tribunal
We can also advise on the following:
- drafting key documents
- instructing dedicated barristers and independent experts
- negotiating satisfactory settlements
- ensuring that Local Authorities provide comprehensive provision and the requisite support to children and young people with autism, including where necessary paying for specialist residential schools
All one-to-one sessions must be booked at the event itself and will be restricted to one session per person.
We look forward to seeing you there.
