Have you every written any Independent Catastrophic Psychiatry Report? The report requires extensive knowledge of DSM5 and AMA 6th edition to award a WPI (Whole Person Impairment Ratings). If yes then could you please share with me your work?
You have to read the whole report and the diagnosis provided by a psychiatrist. Based on the diagnosis you will then formulate a WPI ratings. Based on the diagnosis and the screening question including GAF, BPRS etc you have to do the WPI calculation and provide a score.

As per EA (2010), a person with disability an individual who has a mental or physical impairment that has a wide-range and long-run negative impact on his capability to exercise the normal day-to-day functions. The definition of disability under EA (2010) includes Tourette’s syndrome and those with communication issues. EA suggests that, about 6 to 7% of the children are disabled. Some research indicates that around 75% of the disabled students also have SEN. Under EA 2010, a duty is imposed on public sector bodies and schools to determine how they can eradicate discrimination, support equality of opportunity and to develop good relations as regards to disability. As per Department for Education and Skills (2004), the figures of students with social, behavioural and emotional difficulties has soared by 23% between 2005 and 2010 and in 2010, about 158,000 students were classified as having learning difficulties. According to the D of E SEN SFRs (1995) to (2010) and Department for Education and Skills (2004), students with SEN without statements increased from 10 % of all students in 1995 to 18.2% or 1.5 million students in the year 2010 in U.K. As per Lamb Inquiry (2009), SEN can occasionally be ‘uncooperatively pooled’ with falling behind and this may have resulted in the ever increasing figures of students at Action Plus and School Action. A major effect of the EA for schools is that where students are included in the protected characteristics, action must be taken to address any SEN issues and support these students in accessing and achieving their potential.>GET ANSWER
