hi, no wounder your confused! my son has just gone through the statementing process they always ask for you views and this will be included in the draft statement, the statement that you check and if you agree sign off before they send you the final statement. i think it varies from town to town how long the process takes however they do have time guidelines to follow. once you have a statement and the school you have chosen has a place i would have thought you are entitled to that place without delay, why would you have to wait 6 months? i would contact the school direct and explain that your child is being statemented at the moment and ask about available places. i did this and my son has been in special school since last september, i signed of his statement a couple of months ago. hope this helps
I never thought it would happen to me.
