information please - I must try and get a SEN statement for my son
Good afternoon I am hoping for some information please. We have recently moved back to the UK after many years in Cape Town where my 10year old son attended a special educational needs school. He has PPD NOS Dyspraxia and is on the ASD spectrum but otherwise doing well. He has been assessed as aprox 2 years behind. I must try and get a SEN statement for him who do I contact for this? The system is different in Cape Town we just had to pay the school to accept him. I am terribly worried that he will be put into a secondary school with children his own age but who are more advanced than him academically. I would like to avoid home schooling if I can. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Liz
