After lots of emails and telephone - we finally got our tribunal date - July - I am a total wreck , not sure if to be happy or sad - gloomy days ahead.
thinking about the what ifs,
- is our choice of placement right for DC,
- is this the end of the struggle?
- Will i have to go through this again at each annual review?
- Have i done right by my DC.
- What if the tribunal rules in favour of the LEA - we are seeking independent placement - no response from the LEA re how their placement will provide the required resources for DC - maybe they will say on the day.
- DC is going to Yr 7 in Sept - if ruling not in our favour - where do we stand - school wise for DC
- I cant even concentrate at work, I cant help been pessimistic - having read lots of thread here. Though read lots of positives as well

Anyone wil similar or who can give some reassurance needed.
Sceptical: [hmm

what effect has sats scores on tribunal , if teachers score are lower then sats as dc is hf and had scribe, reader etc for sats test - hence high scores.
