Good morning everyone
After nearly three years of fighting , challenging and what feels like banging our heads against a brick wall at times, we have finally got our EHCP! For our adopted son who has been diagnosed with FAS by genetics.
The school our son is at present, although we have given them all the health records, Peaditrican reports, social workers reports and even reports from the FASD trust and even tried to get them to engage with the trust! In their report the Senco teacher reported that the school didn't have an issue with our son and this was a parent request and down to bad parenting style!
Anyway , to strengthen our case we employed a education psychologist , who's findings was shocking !, although he has recommended our son stays in mainstream we feel as he does this school is not suited for him and subsequently as he gets older, he is eight at present , we feel looking at the world wide evidence of FASD that he will not cope.
Thus our question is this, how many parents have moved the child with FASD to a special school, and if you had the chance would you like us?
Sorry for the rant but like many other parents , this has and continues to be a struggle , due to ignorance, training etc.
