  • hi guys

    well im back and trying to get back into the swing of my non-stop battling!

    Ts appointment for his MRI scans has come through and its on Friday 14th Dec, we have to be there for 7.30am. T is aware of what is happening and his reply was 'mum tell the doctor to get a knife and cut the pain out of my tummy' my heart sank for him bless him! :cry:

    Also the panel for the anxious non-attenders met on wednesday gone and they decided T didnt fit the bill to be accepted! :twisted: so he has no support to be offered from them, i am fuming! the head teacher is not happy and he said T is one of the worst kids he has come across regarding his anxieties about attending school. The system stinks and we all know it, will it ever change? god only knows that.

    Also as T is refusing to go to school all the school can offer is that the behavioural support worker comes each morning to do an hours work with him, if T gets aggressive & violent she will have to leave, understandably. What concerns me & my solicitor is that T is NOT recieving an education which he is entitled to by law. We have the tribunal in Jan 08 for an assessment of special educational needs.

    My solicitor is astounded by the lack of concern & help for T, so in the morning i have to ring more people and hound them insisting they help us, if they want me to crawl up and die then they have another thing coming!

    My son is human and he has human rights, if they wish to do things like this then they need to be prepared for it all to blow up in their faces which i can assure will happen, i have done nothing wrong and the 'powers that be' have done everything wrong!

    Feeling ever so anxious about the tests on Friday, but what will be will be and i would rather know so i can deal with it.

    spk soon guys, im not feeling too good about things at the mo.
  • Gald to see your back Bambi, looks like you have a lot on your plate at the mo' I wish you luck for the hospital visit and hope that T is ok for you and hope the doc's manage to make his pain go away bless him.

    Good luck with the tribunal too and I hope you start to get some help for T soon, take care :D

    Hi Bambi

    Just wanted to say I hope T co-operates for the scan so that you can find out more about his medical condition.
    Hope all goes well in preparation for the tribunal.
    We will be thinking of you.
  • Thnx guys :)

    OK guys the child protection core assessment came today, they have got facts wrong & made out things are fine with everyone but me, so i have sifted through it and noted what is actually in correct information, along with stating what others have witnessed and documentated.

    It says on one point that T was in hospital and his behaviours were not witnessed in hospital, they seem to forget, or choose to ignore the fact that T lost it and a nurse & 2 docs witnessed it. The nurse was nice in telling me it wasn't nice to witness but it will help Ts needs and she noted in down in his records for all to see what happened. This was because i asked him to get ready for bed, along with T telling me i was being horrible and the nurse told him i was not being horrible.

    These fools amaze me! they also say that i moved T from 5 schools! it was in actual fact 2 schools i personally took him out of & they forgot to mention the school that left him without an education for 6 months, even after the EWO spoke to our GP and our GP advised them that they provide T with home tutition, which he didnt get due to being left to rot! So where they got 5 schools is beyond me! he was on his fourth school when we moved.

    OMG! i cant go through it all but a lot of crap in there i can tell ya!

    However it is noted that i am providing T with the warmth & care he needs and i showed loving behaviour & praise towards him, of course i will he is my son and i have never, ever abused him! and i think thats clear for anyone to see when they see me with T.

    Bit confused as to where we go from here, but my solicitor has copies and he will be the one to respond with my comments. They said they have enclosed an envelope for the my comments form and guess what? no envelope or comments form in there so i had to ring them to get the address to where i send it, all that was there was the assessment.
  • Oh dear Bambi at least you are fighting back!!

    I recently had my core-assessment too with many facts left out so basically re-wrote it for them and gave copies to all at the meeting, shame we have to do these things though isn't it.

    The social worker has even said I can go back through it and say how T's disability affects him but I think I may just attach the PDA info sheet for them, it gets rather boring repeating the same stuff!!

    Good luck with it and let us know what happens :D
