What a shame.

Re: Child behaviour issues? - Paediatrician needed

Good luck, good news the referral is through. Seeing a private neurodevelopmental paed is expensive - it’s not just a case of a 30 min appointment as with a general paediatrician as there is a lot to consider. A paediatrician will not carry out therapy but likely signpost to other professionals (eg ...

Re: Child behaviour issues? - Paediatrician needed

He sounds brilliant and a sparky little boy! Saying that, if you’re worried it is worth checking things out. To be honest if you saw a “regular” Nhs paed they may not spot anything (and a generalist private paed spotted nothing in my son although the the nhs agreed to refer further )....but it was c...

Re: Neurodiverse Teenage Girls

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen somewhere that someone set up a group for this very reason. Might be lavender something? Might be someone connected with NAS Lambeth branch. Provably worth a post in one of the local Facebook groups - ASD Child in SW London or ASD SW London.

Re: 3yrs old Autism - help/advice

Dudley you absolutely do NOT need a diagnosis for an EHCP. An EHCP is needs based and the legal framework does not require diagnosis. However a diagnosis certainly helps with evidence of need as the reports spell out the areas of difficulty. Parents are told many things about requirements for EHCPs,...

Re: 3yrs old Autism - help/advice

I suspect the NAS website comment is just to get a diagnosis quicker rather than jump the NHS queue (there is a backlog unfortunately). There tends to be a “fast track” NHS process so perhaps you’d get on that - not sure how fast it was but we were on it because it was blimmin obvious that my son ha...

Re: 3yrs old Autism - help/advice

Bunnypigeon are you sure that will accelerate the nhs process? Who has told you that? I would query how it is fair for someone who is able to pay for a private diagnosis to jump the NHS queue when some families have to wait years as they are unable to pay. You may just have to sit it out on the NHS ...

Re: SEN Help

We use Munira at OT4Kids in Southfields. There are others eg Kikis on thurleigh road or there is someone at The Children’s Place (speech therapy but also have OT) on falcon road. As someone above suggested it might be worth seeing someone who can look at the whole picture of what is happening eg Ed ...

Re: Is anyone else feeling really fed up with the state of things right now?

The really sad thing is that most of us probably don’t know the half of it. I for one am lucky enough to live in my BTC bubble but have a child with SEN and some of the stories of families with children with SEN/disabilities are utterly heartbreaking. There is no money and little support. Reduced fu...

Re: Nanny holiday sick pay practice

We give 20 days holiday plus bank holidays. In reality our nanny always gets more holiday as we tend to take more. For sickness, I think we have written in our contract that sick pay (above SSP) is at our discretion but we may pay up to one week of sick pay. In reality we’ve tended to be more genero...

Re: 3yrs old Autism - help/advice

Hello and big hug, you must be having a very worrying time. These therapies are basically forms of applied behaviour analysis (ABA).  My son has been on an ABA programme for the last 3 years to great success (more the verbal behaviour methods).  I think many ABA professionals use the ESDM for very l...

Re: Martinhal La Quinta

We went last year and had a really lovely time. We specifically wanted to go to Quinta because of the golf and proximity to airport.  Martinhal was nice - is not a complex specifically built for them, was something else they took over so last year they hadn't completed the refurbishment of all the v...
