i've had my daughter home for ten weeks so i am really looking forward to her going back so i can have a bit of a break. BUT she is starting a new mainstream school who havent looked after a child with a disability before so inevitably there are going to be some teething problems but in the long run i think it will be the right move for her!!

Fingers crossed XXX

I'm actually dreading her going back, as we have seen quite a calm Chiara all holidays, apart from a few ocassions. She has been dreadful the last 3 or 4 days, as the countdown on her picture book has began. Meltdown, after meltdown, after meltdown. She's not sleeping again, having horrendous night terrors again, just back to how she was at the end of last term :-( i'm really stressing about it now, as is she. Both my husband and I feel that she would be better suited in a school that caters for her extra needs, but for some reason the ed' pysch' wants her to stay put at the moment?! confused at why this is the case. Anyway, sorry for going on and on :-P lol I AM DREADING IT THOUGH!! xxx

My daughter has been the same!! She is now going into year 2 in a mainstream school and we have been trying to change her statement now for 2 years, to get her into a special school, we are now waiting for their decision this year, but it is looking more hopefull than it was before. Keep fighting though as at the end of the day you know her better than anyone else, especially better than as ed psych (who in my daughters case saw her only once a year)!!!

Oh i agree fully about the ed' pysch', she has only met chiara once and her report in many ways contradicts all the other specialists that Chiara sees monthly!! Craziness, but hopefully we can get her sorted ad settled soon xxx

Well Euan started back on Thursday and hes done so well so far Smile
Hes been really happy and he seems to have grown up overnight Big Grin

But so far he has done only morning sessions and now its the step up to full time with settling sessions this week and dinner sittings etc.
The school are starting to learn medications this week as well with the help of the community nurse and when we took the multiple carrier bags of medicine in the other day they couldnt believe how many there were so it will be a massive learning curve for them thats for sure as they have even said they have NEVER had a child as medically challenging as Euan in regards to medication requirements but the funny thing is i know the staff will embrace the challenge and its makes it so much nicer knowing the staff will do things and learn things to help the children within the school.

So has everybodies children settled now?
Looking for sensory toys at affordable prices then look no further

Seliona has supposidly settled in, according to her teacher, but she has gone back to her previous self before the school hols. She is terrible on school mornings and after school she is not much better, she is also already telling me things that have happened at school but no one has seen and she hasnt told anyone, im seriously considering keeping her home, but not sure if it will mess things up or not. We had her annual review 5 months ago and we still have not heard anything regarding us having her moved to a special school. I really want her in a special school as she needs the extra help they can give her and the smaller classrooms, but if it wouldnt mess things up for that i would really keep her home until we can get what we want :-(
