Well we had a phone call yesterday from parent partnership to say that on thier system it is showing that SENAS have made a decision on Seliona's school placement, and they are not going to move her (2nd year they have said this). Now just have to wait for the stupid letter to actually come in the post and then we will have to appeal against it, as she is not happy in mainstream school and is not getting enough help :-( Could really do without all this at the mo though as i have exams next week, i wish they would of waited another week before deciding

What issues are you facing in terms of the school not currently meeting her needs?
What were you hoping for?

Hope you can get your daughter into the school you want. We was lucky to Ben into his special school. There is now a waiting list for his school.

Hi Daniel, well the main problems we have with the school are not to do with her work as such but the other things, so she is average in literature and below average in maths, but she is not doing too bad at the moment with them things, the main problems are her speech and language needs (which are one of the main things on her statement) and all the basic needs too, ie her toileting, and the fact that people are bullying her and no one is noticing. We have been told by them on many occasions that they are going to put more provision in place for her to help, and yes they do a couple of extra things which last a couple of weeks and then it goes back to normal again. The main problem we have with them is that they keep comparing her to other children, they say ' yes well we have had children with autism before so we know what to do' and 'we have had children with selective mutism before so we know what to do', but the fact is, they have had 2 children with selective mutism before and only 3 or 4 with autism (i have found this out) and all are different obviously, firstly and secondly they havent had a child with autism and selective mutism so dont know how to deal with her, for the best. We want her moving to a special school, which we have been to see twice and we love it, and just know it will be the right place for her. Last year the school wrote on the report to SENAS that they disagree that she needs to be moved to a special school, this year they didnt agree or disagree on the report, so im hoping we will have a good chance with the appeal. Its getting so bad now though, im so fed up of her coming home in tears, or with wet clothes, that im honestly thinking that if we cant get our way at appeal that i will take her out of school alltogether. This is the last option as i dont want to do this, as not only will it be hard for me, but it will be hard for her to not be able then to have a chance to socialise with other children and it will be hard for her older sister who will say well if she doesnt have to go to school why do i? I just feel like im stuck and cant get anyone to listen to me :-(
