Well as most of u know I have appealed about Ts refusal of a statement of special educational needs through SENDIST and i was informed that my appeal has been approved.

This morning i recieve a letter from the special needs manager telling me this:

Dear Miss ******

T & D.O.B

We have recently recieved your appeal concerning T and it is a requirement for the authority to seek the views of the child we would appreciate it if you would contact us to make arrangements to obtain the pupils views. If you do not feel it is necessary to provide these views we will require a written explanation for this.

Yours sincerely

Mr *** *******
Special needs manager

So as u can imagine this is the first time i have heard of this especially as T is so young and not a teenager to be able to express himself in a better way.

Anybody had experience of this when appealing an assessment of statement refusal?

Sorry no, but when my sister applied for a statement for my niece she had no problems at all. I got her to read some of the articles you have posted and she was shocked that you were refused a statement as she said it sounds as if T's needs were greater than her daughter, just shows how screwed up the system is.

I guess it's part of the postcode lottery where our and our children's health/education is concerned. Just how is a child that is so young and that may have problems communicating supposed to express their views.

Exactly what i thought Grandma! The thing is this is an appeal to the authority to say they will do an assessment of his special educational needs and i have never heard of them doing this sort of thing and not of a child aged 6 yrs.

Well i scanned the letter and sent a copy to my solicitor's secretary, she mailed me back saying he wasnt in the office today but he would be in the morn and she would show him what i have been sent.

She added that i do nothing in regards to the content in the letter and not to worry, bless her.

I get the feeling they are ready to play silly beggers with me now and guess what? they can talk to my solicitor. I have no interest in communicating with these imbeciles! I have done and said all i can do in my power, so im stepping aside and letting the people who know the law deal with them now.
