Guidance and Support for EP Services in Scotland
ASPEP has developed best practice guidelines for Local Authority Psychological Services in Scotland relating to references to the Additional Support Needs Tribunal in Scotland (ASNTS). These guidelines were launched at a seminar hosted by ASPEP on 30th March 2016 at Raploch Community Campus. The guidelines can be downloaded as a PDF or WORD Document (which can be modified by any local authority).
The seminar had 2 keynote speakers and their presentations and notes are available to download below.
Elaine Falconer, Legal and Democratic Services, Aberdeen City Council spoke about Education Authority Duties for Children with Disabilities followed by a presentation on Preparing for Additional Support Needs Tribunals
Derek P Auchie, ASNTS Convenor led a discussion on the Tribunal process as well as the role of the “skilled” witness. This led to a very helpful question and answer session that was well received by all present.
