Hi Lucy, Carol spoke to one of our lawyers today who stated that he had not heard of an LEA refusing to accept a private diagnosis, although as a lawyer he was normally involved when proceedings had reached tribunal stage. Certainly at this point, a diagnosis from a qualified professional, private or not, would be accepted by the tribunal. Hope this helps. Dave.
