Hi, I'm christine789! How can I speed up getting support for my son's mental health + education?
After a long time of asking the school to support my son (8 at the time) I moved schools. Second week after starting the school the first lockdown began. However, the SENCO called and as I hadn’t said anything to them about my concerns they shared there’s with me. Oddly this was a relief I went home saying “I told you so”. My son is 10 and about to start secondary school. He is working at a year two level and waiting a assessment from com peads. I’m worried he will struggle in secondary school as these waiting lists are approximately a 18 months long. My son will hit out if he feels he is being bullied and has a short temper. Which doesn’t help. But what can I do to help either speed up this process or access somewhere to support him. I worry about his mental health more than any potential disability. A disability diagnosis just opens doors.
