Has anyone ever done this? If so can you offer me some advice.

I have enough evidence to suggest Mattie needs more support at school and still no one will get us the assessment. So I have told them I will do it myself. Any advice?

you need to write to your local education authority, its a standard letter, i believe there is a copy of it on the site (ill post it bellow in a sec for you) basically, you send the request with your reasons why and they have so many days to respond to that

You might also find it useful to talk to your local Parent Partnership who should be able to advise you on how to move this forward and support you with it: http://www.Children.org.uk/information/100885/100906/100908/croydon_parent_partnership/
Parent Partnerships are usually very good but local services do vary so you could also try the Advisory Centre for Education who run a help line and have a lot of good info and downloadable stuff on their website:
Good luck with it,
