AS a former teacher with a special interest in children displaying additional needs and the grandmother of a five-year-old boy diagnosed with high functioning ASD, PDA and hyper mobility, I am increasingly concerned about Warrington education and health services provision for vulnerable children.

My grandson was eventually provided with an EHCP to address needs as specified by professionals (paid for by his parents).

This EHCP was agreed by the council a few days before going to tribunal; obviously to avoid the court date.

Now after only half a term into the new school year these minimal provisions are in danger of being withdrawn.

As a family, we are upset with the lack of help and support available for such a young child.

We don’t really know what else to do to help.
