I think its the case of always knowing whats best for your child and not being afraid to push for it.
Many of the people on this forum seem well clued up on pushing for what they need but the people at the top are blocking their requests.
I would imagines its funding more often than not that make the top people do this.
My advice on this would be go straight to the LEA and go to the very top and ensure you push for what you need.

also we all know we must fight for it, but for most of us our hearts are tired and fed up. i have to remember that my sons school is not overrun with special needs children and to my knowledge. they keep saying to me that there are some children in reece's class at the same level as my son (but they are not special needs). i dont know why i cant seem to get my head around this (i have my blinkers on sometimes). but my argument is to take him back a level as even with the level of learning the other Children are starting to get it - my son is not retaining even the simplest things.

he seems to be good at retaining facts about what he likes - mainy about things that fly. although he still uses a lot of hand gestures instead of words oh and a lot of head nodding too.

I'm also getting fed up with fighting all the time. I'm seriously thinking of getting a solicitor. Does anyone know any that specialise in disabled rights/ASD etc & how much it would cost (v. expensive I expect).
