Do school's normally support statement requests?

Apparently my Ds who has a diagnosis of Asperger's doesn't need a statement! He's 8 in year 4 he has the same reading level as he had at end of year 1! So 26 months same reading level! School refuse to admit they can't teach him despite this and lots more evidence. He has a private ed psych report to say average or above intelligence yet the gap between him and his peers is widening. He is on school action plus, but doesn't need a statement. Is this 'normal practise?

No it is not and your son and your good self are being failed.

Your son needs a new school environment and more help in class. Some schools will completely and utterly refuse to help children, even if you did have an EHCP in place tomorrow they still would not want to help him.

I would look at IPSEAs website which is www.ipsea.org.uk and get yourself further educated on EHCPs which have now replaced statements.
