Statements - how do you know?

A lot of threads on here people seem so knowledgable on what to include in statements. We have to write DS3 this month and I don't even know where to start :/ he will be going into reception, full time 1:1, he is now verbal but it's all very disordered and he understands some two word exchanges but you are still unable to hold a conversation with him. He's starting at a MS school.

Hi kmummy

I did a search on old threads on this board all about writing Statements and just went through and picked out the bits that most applied to my DD.

I shall be back in a moment with some links for you.

In the meantime, in the interests of transparency, I should tell you that I have another thread live on this board right now about my DD's Final Statement being less than perfect grin

I'll be back...

Thank you! It was your thread that inspired this post! I was reading it and thinking I don't even begin to know what I need to ask for sad

Me again!

So, I hope this isn't overwhelming but below are links to some of the threads I referred to when getting my head round what I needed to do for my DD who's in v similar position to your DS i.e. starting school this Sept in MS with full-time 1:1.

Some of the threads were more useful than others (but I can't recall which) and I'm sure there are even more out there.

Quite a few of the threads contained links to IPSEA and also to an ACE guide - the latter being invaluable I think.

Quite a bit to trawl through but hopefully once you've looked at a few you'll get the gist.

Good luck smile

Is there anyone there? It's ok kmummy, it's safe to come out honestly - those threads are not scary - plentiful not not scary honest!

Hope I haven't overwhelmed you....
