First off a message to the admin team

 

Please feel free to move this to the special needs forum - i have posted it here as it is more visited and i am hoping for a few responses as im at a loss, the fact a redirect link is here will help

 

i have a 7 year old daughter with austism spectrum disorder, she has a confirmed diagnosis and is under a specialist autism nurse

 

she And we are having alot of trouble with her school and are wondering how to proceed, ill try and lay this out as best i can but please bear with me as i may wander a bit

 

Bullying - she has got to a point now where she is claiming to be ill and kicking and screaming when we try and take her into school, we know partially about this it is a particular child who is hair pulling, scribbling on work, calling her a baby, persuaded her that all school puddings are poisonous (this is a child thats under a dietician due to poor eating anyway) - we mentioned this to the teacher and all we got is "it couldnt be that child it must be something thats happening at home"

 

IEP - she was for the last 3 years on an IEP, this meant regular meetings with her teacher and extra support, she was taken off this at the start of the year, she is struggling with the work and has a short attention span, we have asked for this IEP to be re-instated but have only been told that "she doesnt need extra help she needs less time off to see the doctors" (the autism nurse has said she should be on one)

 

Attention span - despite being told that she has a very short attention span and that she finds it very hard to sit still (something the autism nurse has said is common with autism) we also get constantly told that shes had to be taken out of assembly's as she cant sit still - when we have mentioned that this is down to the autism we are told that shes "simply being naughty"

 

Fun Fit - the autism nurse recommended that the school add rachel to their fun fit program to help her settle - however we are now being told that they want to take her off this due to her "acting up" due to her attention span, and behaviour which is the reason she was put on the program in the first place

 

Springboard funding - the school applied around 18 months ago to have springboard funding for her, this was due to her behaviour, not being able to keep up with work and issues with wandering around and out of school, we were told that they had been granted the highest funding level, we were told that this was to be spent on baffle locks for the doors, extra doors between school areas, and a teaching assistant to provide 1-1 support - none of this ever arrived, the only thing that happened was printed stop signs appearing on the doors, a month after this the school got new windows throughout and a new roof on the outdoor play area - we are worrying now that the money was misappropriated however are not sure how to ask where the money went or even if we are entitled to

 

 

any advice would be brilliant

she is aware of the bullying issues

 

most of the rest of it started after the last appointment so will normally have to wait a couple of months till the next one

Good idea to make an appointment to see the autism nurse asap and update the nurse on what's been going on and your suspicion money allocated for Rachel has not been designated to her.

 

The school can give you the contact details of the Springboard funding authority, give them a ring and voice your concerns. They will be able to check how the money has been spent.
