I have been a lurker for many months, but decided to sign up and join.
My son is 5 and a half, he has verbal dyspraxia and ASD.
He is currently in mainstream school.
I have appealed parts; 2, 3 & 4 of his statement of special educational needs. I would like him to go to an independent special school, which they have offered him a place.
I have done everything. I have reports from an independent SALT, OT and Ed psych. The SALT and Ed psych will be attending tribunal as well as the head of the special school.
I have handed in all my reports within the evidence deadline.
The LA are being very hush hush and undecided. They still haven't named a school for my son to go into. I've done the request for changes form and the judge ordered the LA to clear name a type of provision, but again they responded that they are still undecided and are waiting for my evidence.....
I am worried that my son may not get a place at the independent special school as my LA have many ASD units and only one ASD specialist school.
Also, what happens if the independent reports say different things, eg. one report says my son needs a minimum of 1:2 direct group work and the other report says a maximum of 1:3. I just realised! and it's too late as I've already sent everything off to tribunal. Would this cause a big issue?
