Your Parent Partnership advisor (who did her best but had no clout) phoning to ask for your solicitor's details so that she can get legal advice about her own child's statement.

It's an appalling indictment on our LEA that even the people they employ to support other parents cannot get the LEA to behave reasonably with regards to their own child even with all the resources and knowledge they have open to them.

At least your lea is consistent in it's equal opportunities policy and cannot be accused of nepotism ; )

All children are failed equally lol!

Justabout...I have been thinking the same thing the £50,000 plus to put ds in the school will come off someone else somewhere won't it? sad I just try not to think about it because you can send yourself mad considering implications for others.

That's awful

Ah yes our LA are very insistent on equity of provision for all- by which they mean equally shit.

StarlightMcKenzie Wed 28-Sep-11 18:50:47

I agree. I doubt that if the Autism Advisory Teacher her very self had a child with ASD, they would be treated any better in my LA.

In mY LA it is all about setting a benchmark. No-one to get anything worthwhile so no-one can expect anything worthwhile.

Will your PP person become a better PP person for this? Or will she have to resign due to conflict of interest?

Will she be able to say to parents 'well, you probably need a solicitor, because even with what I know this LA is evil?'

She resigned Star a conflict of interests. Have had a chat with her today it seems that both she and I have been assigned an arse as our Education Officer (specially reserved for the ones that fight it seems)
She did the same fight as I have done two years ago to get her ds into an independent special school post 16 (he has ASD) and now she is going to fight again because they are biding their time to let the statement run out rather than sort residential college provision.
We are going to share experiences so that it will benefit us both and she has the solicitor's contact details wink
Star my autism outreach person has a daughter with AS, it doesn't make her any more effective or knowledgeable in her case unfortunately.
