Has anyone else out there been affected by this yet? I've been told that from sept my 17yo DS will only get 3 days at school even though he has an EHC plan and has complex needs. This is heartbreaking as he loves school and he needs all the input he can plus the stress of trying to work etc. Please share if you've heard rumblings in your area (I'm in Yorkshire)
If parents work full time then there is sometimes a possibility of direct payments from the disabled children social work departments for the other two days. This can be used to buy days at day centres. It's not enough to pay for a PA.
