Re: Family resort holiday Italy

We went to the Neilson Italian resort last year. We had the same doubts as you but as we only went for a week decided it wouldn’t matter. You can walk from the resort to a couple of restaurants (one you need to book, the other just a beach bar) along the beach but in terms of a town you would need t...

Re: OFSTED REGISTERED ACTIVITIES - HELP

Ofsted registered nanny (they can sign up to your scheme as long as Ofsted registered).
Holiday camps often take vouchers eg young stars camps definitely do. School after school care usually as well.

Re: Live-out Nanny Add-ons

Pension costs. We've always agreed a net rate per hour and then worked out the gross rate and specified that in the contract and then the payroll company works out the monthly net cost. The tax/NI bill comes quarterly so is usually an unpleasant shock! We pay for transport when on the job (eg taking...

And even more worrying is the children with SEN who are out of school.

Re: Discrimination at school?

I'm sorry you're going through this, it is unfair.  I also don't think this is an issue linked to this particular school, I believe it goes on in most schools. There are many children who can't attend for various reasons (esp those with school related anxiety) and this is horrific for them - my own ...

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 ...
