It took me AGES to get any assessment from a SLT. They kept making excuses. Since we because tribunal parents they've been handing them out like sweets!
I think it is a bit off she didn't ask permission, but on the otherhand it would have been off of me to have refused so I'm not entirely bothered by it, just I'd rather he had therapy, not assessments.
Honestly, she left it 6 months to the day since the last assessment, so it must be more than a cooincidence?
I wouldn't read too much into it. It would be logistically impossible for me to contact and inform every paretn of the 100s of children i work with that I was going to assess, in whatever way i was (ie informally, formally, some aspects)
If she has allotted time to your child (as is probably the case and certainly isn't with 95% OF KIDS WHO GET salt, THEN YES, SHE WILL HAVE THE LUXURY OF (oops) being able to do things that she would never be able to otherwise.
The hardest thing about SALT is juggling the time you have as a SALT with the needs of a huge number of people.It gets you down tbh.
Yeah. She's been alright. Thought we had good communication etc. That's partly why I am surprised, but this was his first session back so perhaps she just decided over the Xmas period so no time to notify.
But it will be a long time before I can shake my paranoia and mistrust. Her boss was very nasty about me at tribunal. These people and their work exist in context don't they.
But you're right. I can probably ask her when I next get to see her (although this is only 2-3 times a term). I don't want to put it in writing. It looks critical. Suppose that was why I was just asking on here.
