  1. Lynden I have PM you as I live in the Harrow area. Sonia xx
  2. Where in London are you? I maybe of some help. Sonia x
  3. My son has had the same TA for 3 + years now. He moves to middle school in september so will change TA'S then. His present TA is great with a wealth of experience and training. She attended Early Bird Plus last July with my husband and I, with the support of the school. When Nathan got his statement in reception I was advised about have something concrete put into statement as follows: " Support provided by staff who are qualified/and or have experience in meeting the needs of pupils with autism". Experience and a commitment to learn is so important. If a TA is dedicated to learn then this can sometimes outway qualifications. Unfortunatley I do not believe there are alot of qualified TA's in ASD out there but more are emerging with the passion and dedication needed. Hope this helps, Sonia xxx

    Annual Review

    Fiorelli We live in Greater London and my son's statement was reviewed 6 months as a first annual review and then yearly. He is also in year 3 and got his statement towards the end of reception. He has had 25 hrs from the beginning and this has not been reduced( I am known within our LEA for fighting hard!!!). He is in mainstream. Sonia x
  5. OPooh We are considering moving at the end of this school year and looking for some local knowledge on schools etc. My son is in Year 3, with ASD and a statement of 25 hrs/week and doing well in mainstream. Would be very thankful if you could share your experience and local knowledge. Sonia xx
  6. Dear all We are considering moving house. Does anyone live in Gloucestershire? Cheltenham, Churchdown,Innsworth area. Thanks Soniax
  7. Dear all My son has ASD,is currently in year 3 with 25hrs/week support. In my LEA my son has started KS2 in fisrt school and will move to middle school next september. He has achieved mostly level 2 in his SATS and is doing really well in mainstream. The LEA have requested that I inform them of which school I would like my son to attend next year so the school name can be amended on his statement. Has anyone any experience of transition to KS2 and has the support been dramatically cut? There is also a strong possiblility that we may move into different LEA by next september as my husband has started a new job. What is the legality about maintaining a statement if you move to another LEA? As my husband is in the RAF we may not have an address until nearer the time. Will the new LEA allow us to request a new school if they have the provision without our family having anew address? Many thanks Sonia xx
