Well, I am fuming and there is steam coming out of my fucking ears, i'm that mad!!
He's lied, insinuated things (not very subtle either) about me and basically sent this after I complained about him last week, to his boss.
I would like to reply telling this flipping idiot what I think of him and his useless knowledge of girls on the spectrum and say I think he's wrote the report this way because of the disagreements we'd previously had about him telling me my daughter would not be on the spectrum.
"Doesn't he line things up nicely & his counting is really good" (age 3) "he wouldn't even look at me - I don't think he likes me much" (age 5) "he definately doesn't need a statement as he speaks really well" (age 6) "he's too inteligent to have ASD" (aged 7)
Star's worded it perfectly for you. Short, sweet & to the point. An air of non-threatening gentle confusion is what you need to be aiming for. (keep your powder dry at this stage).
My quotes in my last post were gems found in reports etc from my own LA EP over the years btw. You just can't fix stupid, but you can drive yourself mad trying !!!!! Send Star's note as a short email. Print a copy of the email for your file and then leave it while you focus your energies on something productive.
Was this the EP visit for assessment? I thought that the meeting with the EP revealed him as a complete toss-pot but DS1 still got a (crap) statement (going to tribunal). His actual written report was better but the draft/final statement omitted all the best bits anyway. What the lea did copy for part 3 was the recommendations for intervention he had made.
Odd - SA assessment was actually the fourth EP that DS had seen (1 independent) but he repeated the WISC-4 assessment. Classroom obs/talking to child/to teaching staff/parents was only part of it. Most statements are cut and paste from expert reports (part parental obs (not much) + psychological assessment + medical assessment + teaching reports (the majority)) - there is nothing original. Where will they copy part 3 from?
It's very odd. The report was more about how she appeared to him and focussed very much on the things him and I talked about. tbh there are too many errors to correct. If I knew I didn't need it further down the line, i'd shred the useless piece of future toilet paper.
I spoke to his boss last Thursday and this report was only typed up on 3/12/12 and he saw her back in October. It's like a diary of events but then lots of twisting what was said. It's like everything he said, it was the complete opposite. How do they get away with writing such shit?!
Can I ask him to be released from our case, because his personal views about me are interfering in his work?
I don't really know what will happen as she hasn't been in school long enough for them to even know her, report on her. And what they have said on report, it's what they've already gone back on from meetings.
My ds' EP was quite good actually. I mean she listened and attempted to help where she could, but her hands were absolutely tied when it came to recommendations. She also reported us to social services in the end though.
Tbh, I don't think she was an evil witch. There was evil in the system and she was a part of that but I think at the time she had genuine concern.
What happened next is the LA rubbed their hands in glee and it all go out of hand. I had VERY good cause to raise a complaint against the EP for the way she handled it but actually on THIS occasion I felt she was a bit of a victim herself and she was about to go in maternity leave.
The nasty bullying piece of work that followed her was quite another story however.
