Does anyone have a home education package funded by an LA?

My ds with Downs and autism was taken out of mainstream, special school and an independent school for ASD due to challenging beh. For past year we have had a fabulous full time teacher at home funded by the LA. The improvement in him has been unbelievable - no challenging beh at all now. Yet the LA have decided to cancel this arrangement on some spurious reasons (mostly because of administrative issues) even though it's a cheaper option than sending him to his last school so for once it's not about money.

We need examples of where this has worked in other authorities just to prove that this arrangement can work. Can anyone help? We have had so many battles along the way. Thanks.

Suggest you post this on the Home Ed board as well. I know of 1 case where a Local Authority have funded an online school which is slightly different.
