Thanks for asking Sasha! I think it’s always going to be a struggle. Before we got the asd and spd diagnosis, his personal tutor, that we pay for once a week assessed him on reading speed and comprehension, writing speed, and some other things to show what he needed for sats purposes. (WIAT II T, DASH) Of course the school have to apply for a scribe etc, and were umming and ahhing, so I made it clear we have supported him and them, but we are not spending hours revising at home, and if he isn’t supported at school and provided with these things for the sats he is likely to perform poorly.
The SALT that assessed for asd says he needs an EHCP as soon as possible, and when I receive the paperwork, he’ll send a framework of adjustments that I must meet with the SENCO and present. Not looking forward to it, but the silly things they do at school like moving his place in the class without warning have a massive affect on home life and it’s just not fair.
Sorry, that was a bit of an essay, but the long and short is, I’m not actually sure what adjustments the school have applied for. I feel like they don’t care
