Minutes of our annual review came in the post this morning. I have already said it was a great meet and the minutes reflect that. They have put in big red letters that ALL at the review request that DS statement band 3B does not to ds justice and request amendment to 3ASD stating that due to a successful transition any behavioural challenges are directly as a result of the clinical diagnosis and I am thrilled about that.
However amongst the minutes was DS own contribution of his views on his learning difficulties. I had to smile
Q: What do you like abut school? DS: ready steady grow zone, fish and chips on a friday, ICT
Q: What things do you do really well in school? DS: Drawing, making more friends
Q: What would you like to be changed at school? DS: Fish and chips every day. Everyone else to do my work for me. XBOX 360 outside to play at lunchtimes and free chocolate every day given out with the fish and chips.
Q: What extra help would you like in school? DS: Not really.
Q: Is there anything else you would like to say about school?
DS: Its alright and its definitely better than my old one.
I take it that is my asd childs view on school heaven!
They did mention that they had noticed DS had chosen more quiet time than going out to play this last week so they monitored it and worked out that the older children have worked out his vulnerabilities and have been coaching the younger ones to join in the winding up. So they stamped on it quick and spoke to the younger ones about feelings.
It worked as he is back outside for the time being. At the last school they would have just said he was non compliant in doing what he was told and going out but he didnt have someone looking on at a distance there.
Pipin I loved the last answer would love to post it to someone....
