I'm in a panic. Have to get the working document back to the LA by 5pm today.

I have my own OT report and recommendation which the LA don't accept. They have an NHS report who's recommendations they have out in part 6.

In part 3 I have put both lots of therapy recommendations from both reports.

I've made it clear to the LA I want both reports in, the LA say that I have to chose one or the other.

My report recommends 10 sessions of WEEKLY sensory integration therapy . The NHS report recommends 10 - 12 direct 1:1 sessions.

My school has an I house OT who attends the school 3- 4 times a term. The head has said that if we stick to weekly then the LA could argue school cannot meet the needs and think this is an argument the LA are gearing up. I'm happy that he gets the therapy, I am not overly concerned about twit being weekly, the school placement is the most important issues.

I am thinking about removing the part where it says weekly sessions and stick with the NHS recommendations but I'm scared that that could also go against me. My OT is attending the tribunal - I want to keep the rest of her recommendations as it has things like sensory diets etc. I spoke to my OT yesterday and she feels the most inportant part is the school placement as it can meet his needs

I just don't know what to do.

Also had an email from the LA this morning, they didn't get a salt report so have sent my independent one to the NHS salt who have said we don't know him so can't comment. They now want my permission to refer him even though they have repeatedly stated that I. Their opinion a salt report was never needed

No advice to add, but I'm watching with admiration grin
