My daughter has been assessed as dyslexic 2 years ago by dyslexia action. We changed schools 9 months ago and a SEN planner mtg is taking place on Tuesday. I have been asked for my input. Although I have got lots to say I do not know where to start. Any help or advice or buzz words to be used would be helpful.

dS is working at year 2 level and is in year 4. Really struggles with maths, spellings, comprehension (she under SALT), retaining infrmation, processing info and working memory. Can not recall anything she was taught two mins previous.

It is affecting self esteem.,

This meeting with decide whether she is observed by the educational psychologist and strategies put in pace and extra intervention. Therefore I want my input spit on.

Anyone op put together some info for a similar meeting to support their child?

I think it's always helpful to go into a meeting with some notes / bullet points, so you remember everything you want to say.
You don't need 'buzz words', you need to say in what ways your dd is struggling.
Numeric / objective facts are helpful where possible, and specific details if you can.
If you have any reports from SaLT, and from Dyslexia Action - take them with you. If you have IEPs (or whatever name they replaced the support plans with) from her previous school - take them.

If you can show that she has been given extra support (be it small groups or TA support in lessons or specialist programmes or interventions) and is still struggling despite that extra input, it helps the case. smile

Thank you for your advice. I am not actually part of the meeting, my daughter is being discussed with the hope that the ed psy will assess her, therefore I have to put pen to paper for my input on my daughter.
