So stressed I don't think I can post properly until tomorrow. Really stressful meeting. No real conclusions
1:1 in Early Years class but no specific ASD provision at the school with the fab unit (there is one place but they won't allocate it to one of the children because they know the other parents will go straight to tribunal).
Or, a place in a new ASD class they are going to set up in two months (!) at the other school. 4 children, one teacher, two TAs. But I'm nervous about this. It's not a known entity. The school does not have a good history with ASD children.
I think we'll end up at tribunal.
What a week. DD not at all well, either, with, we think, very severe constipation. In agony. Spent half the day at the LEA and half at A&E!
This and an awful day yesterday for our country. Still to hear from one friend
Oh dear Jak, shame it isn't sorted. I know what you mean about not wanting to be the first to try out a new provision, it was a good time before DS's school looked anything like a real school and waited. As for constipation, you are probably v experienced in what to do, but do you give her paraffin oil?
Sorry that things are not good on the LEA front. having fought my battles I know how annoying it can be. Persevere and you will get there in the end.
Constipation.....J suffered badly with this until we saw the nutritionalist at BIBIC and she suggested Pineapple Juice mixed 50/50 with water.
It worked for us and it is all J drinks now. Apparently there are enzymes in the pineapple that help to break food down in the gut and help with softening motions. Good luck....its a horible painful thing for little 'uns when they cant go.
