Snap Cymru is very helpful

Independent Parental Special Education Advice (IPSEA) is a volunteer based charity which gives FREE and INDEPENDENT advice to parents about education.
IPSEA may be able to help if you feel your child’s needs are not being met, for example: if you are not happy at the way the school is meeting your child’s special educational needs; if you want the school to assess your child, but they refuse; if the LEA refuse to issue a IDP or Statement after assessing your child; if you want to appeal against a IDP when it is first made or when it is amended; if the LEA will not put the school you prefer on your child’s Statement; if you are unhappy with the amount of help your child is being given.
