I think you put your opinion as to what the provision looks like on the form now. Set out your stall at this stage. Your assessment of his needs is obviously based on your expertise as a parent, plus what the experts already say.

You are aiming for an end result of the Final Statement containing the provisions that you know he needs. Set these out now. You can always amend them in the future, if the advice/needs change.

Good luck.

Not sure what you mean - is it regular support which you are giving your child/intending to give your child?

Oh I see, I've not got any experience of home ed. I imagine that these schemes are to help with his education (can't imagine that they would/could be for anything else). I think that if you want this training to happen then you can say at this stage that it should be on the Final Statement.

You've no doubt given the whole issue of his educational setting a lot of thought. It may just be my lack of experience but all the other SEN cases that I'v known of have been about getting educational support within school. I'm not sure how it works with home ed. You could get some more advice from IPSEA?

Hi sorry I have misunderstood and given you a more complicated answer than you needed.

I think I can only revert to my original advice of putting everything you want out of the process down at this stage. The forms always ask you for information which you have already given. I think they just love paperwork.

Yes I'm sure that the early years are seen as really important for all children and for children with SEN getting the right support at pre-school is crucial.

Good luck.
