    Hi @magicmumx4
    Welcome to the community, does your daughter go to a mainstream school or a special school?

    Also the National Autistic Society has an Education Rights Service that you can get in touch with.

    The Education Rights Service provides impartial and confidential information and support on school education rights and entitlements.
    We can:
    • offer confidential information, advice and support by phone or email
    • explain education law and your rights and entitlements
    • help you explore your options so that you can make informed decisions about your child’s school education
    • help you communicate effectively with your child’s school and education professionals
    • explain complaints and appeals processes and support you if you are making an appeal.

    Hi @magicmumx4

    If your daughter has educational needs which are not being met, whether due to her ADHD/Autism or the physical issue with toileting, you can speak to your local Special Educational Needs Information, Advice and Support Service. You can find them by doing an internet search for 'SENDIASS' and then your area. They will be able to provide information about local support services and will also signpost you to schools which may be better able to meet your daughter's needs.
Complete our feedback form and tell us how we can make the community better.
