i have seen the huge book/list that they use - it generally goes from the most basic of things like following something/someone with eyes (no offence to parents) to things like learning to ride a bike. But it goes in tiny tiny increments.
it isnt related at all to age, but developemental steps instead - to guide manually thru development.
yeah we get ecap as in notts too - im jennybensmummy name changed! though not seen list for ages and wanted to look myself as no idea where ben is really and not sure she will be helpful knowing i want to apply for a statement lol. thanks
Our portage - J.S. has been thoroughly unhelpful in the statementing process. I asked her about statementing when DS5 first started seeing her - before he was 2, and she said "ooh dont worry about that i will organise that" . I naively believed her.
If only i'd have known back then that if id have asked for assessment then they would have to have done one by law! i have to appeal that bit now as well
We got turned down for Ecap as well, im sure because she paints this rosy picture - im all for being postive, but not at the expense of being turned down for help.
misscutandstick oh no ! our potage worker is great she as put chloe down for helping with statement in her book for jan and booked us to go and look at nursery's with her tagging along. also she told us but put all the negatives in not the good .
