this is a real cry for help - I've posted on here before - in a nutshell, my daughter has anaphylaxis/severe allergies, eczema and brittle asthma. Up until now she has had a 1-1 TA with her the whole time in school which has meant she has been able to carry on 'as normal' as much as possible. Saying this, she has been watched like a hawk in the dinner hall (TA has stopped cross contamination, administered medication, etc.) She has been given her inhaler regularly throughout the day - most days, up to hourly. Doctors say that because her ribcage has expanded so much as a result of having so many attacks from birth, it is impossible to know when she's struggling without being really close to her. I do not trust teachers to be able to know when she's going down hill, and like many people on this forum, she goes downhill very quickly.
The problem is, academically she's bright and is making good progress - the LA fail to see that if it wasn't for my guardian angel of a TA, she probably wouldn't be at school at all. What on earth do I do? I'm going to appeal, quoting the DDA and stamping my feet very loudly - but I don't hold out much hope.
I would really appreciate some advice
