My children have a physical condition and some emotional one's due to the physical condition which is common with the syndrome. There are also proprioception issues, I think undiagnosed dyslexia in one of the children, she was tested two years ago and borderline, not quite dyslexic. There are word tracking issues. One has school refusal anxiety issues.
I thought it may help the school, make school better for them, by meeting their needs more, was going to get an ot as well, regarding writing pain, carrying books etc...
Devient, thanks for the response, can you please tell me what happens regarding the school refusal?
I am getting questioned by the educational welfare, thought I would pre empt things after all the threats last time, of fines, courts/prison etc... in a way that is leading to it being my fault in some kind of way, they are ignoring the physical condition dd has, and they are totally going hell for leather for the emotional stuff, apparently it is also my fault that the gp has not managed to get camhs appoimtent despite me asking for about a year due to school refusal!
The person who is insisting on dealing with the issue at school is a nasty piece of work, who I had a run in two years ago with the oldest, and has done something else to me and oldest at the end of last year when I for the second time needed to have contact with that school. He is blocking me again, this time from speaking to anyone else and I don't want to deal with him, he is bad news! I actually was so concerned about him I made a point of telling my kids to ensure they were never left a lone in a room with him, and have never said that about any other teacher, he is setting off abusive man radar big time!
So a week tomorrow and as the school is an academy now and the school and the ed welfare are doing nothing.... I can see this all causing a bomb to go off, and me being blamed!
I am in a very vounerable position, a single parent (abusive ex not on scene and would love to help them destroy me if he got the chance) and I have physical disability and anxiety and depression at times, related to the hell that I had to live for a few yeas with ex and my health problems.
In some areas you can refer yourself to CAMHS they have a website here
I would also ask for a meeting with ED welfare and ed psyc. I would also find out who is head of education and contact them, even by email or post. I would got to parent partnership or 1st call or equivalent for help. Even the likes of Contact a family etc go anywhere for advice.
Is your dc statemented? is dc in special school or mainstream?
If it's mainstream I would consider a change of school. If not statemented maybe it's whats needed.
