  1. Has anyone got a copy of the NAS mag, I need to know when the next social stories training is and I know they arrange a carol gray training course about once a year. Ive looked on the website but cant find anything so wondered if anyone knows about it thanks Summer x
  2. We're off to the dominican republic in august and DD3 has major anxieties about being too confined so i phoned the airline and explained, they have made a note of it and are hopeful that they can sit us at the front so we have noone infront of us, they said that all such requests will be looked at a couple of days before the flight and a final decision made then so they cant be certain till we get there. the only thing they ask from us is a note from the doc to say she is fit to
  3. what model is it, most Hp's Ive bought lately have a recovery programme already installed but hidden on the C drive
  4. would the head be in the position to take you on as a graduate teacher, I'm not sure if this can be done in a special school but may be worth investigating
  5. Looks like we are in the same position only my DD will be 14 in two weeks, she's always been very anxious but its only now she's older Im noticing more and more traits, very literal, socialising with peers etc. We went to CAMHS and they useless, they went round and round in circles not addressing any issues at all. I deal with CAMHS in another area and they are brilliant but the one we have has only made her worse Im now looking to try and get her assessed so we know whats going on and that hopefully will give us a clearer idea of where to get some support for her from
  6. We'd have a two year waiting list to contend with once we get the referral so need to act a little quicker than that.
  7. Hi all I'm looking for someone who could do an assessment in the midlands, its going to have to be a private assessment as time is of the essence. if you know anyone please dont post the info here but I'd be grateful if you could PM it to me thanks Summer x
  8. you have the right to appeal, get as much evidence together as you can and get advice from your local parent partnership. Usually when they say SEN as priority is does mean children with statements but you need to put it to the appeals committee that because of his SEN this school best fits his needs
  9. I'm no expert but I have been involved with many children under ss care and as I see it if it was a voluntary agreement and he wasnt a ward of court then the ss wouldnt be able to go against your wishes with any medical decisions without it being agreed by a judge. If he became a ward of court he would be appointed a guardian who would then make those decisions for him. I agree that the social worker is just trying to scare you by using bullying tactics.
  10. Have a brilliant day M :robot: :robot: :robot:
  11. school uniform isnt compulsory in most primary schools but is in some, each school has their own policy on it. It doesn't sound like the uniform is the issue cus as you say you still have to fight when he isnt wearing it, but something obviously is a problem and fighting him to put his uniform on won't help. you can certainly stop them from trying to put it on him, as this is something he doesnt want it will be classed as restrictive physical intervention and this isn't allowed unless he is in danger of hurting himself, others or the property of school or other pupils. i certainly dont think it would fall into any of these categories. I think they need to work out why he doesnt want to go and then when he's happy to go he will most likely be happy to wear his uniform. But I would certainly insist they no longer battle with him to get it on, if you dont manage to get him in it don't send it in, they may try to put on some spare uniform but without your permission they have no right to do it.
  12. Sounds like a good choice, hope all goes well
  13. wow thats brilliant, he really is doing well, congrats both of you
  14. hi there lya, Ive pm'd you some stuff summer x
