Mystery...thank you ! I agree that it is a very 'broad' statement but the wording doesn't exclude Sen does it?
I looked at the Special Educational needs act which says:
The Special Educational Needs (SEN) Disability Act (2001) defines a disabled person as 'someone who has a physical or mental impairment which has an affect on his or her ability to carry out normal day to day activities'. ‘A mental impairment' is defined as including ‘hidden impairments' e.g. dyslexia.
You are right...it is well worth having a try..so try I will. I had a nightmare last night....I am possibly going to be appealing for both dc's next Spring..the nightmare was that I successfully appealed for each dc ..but for the wrong school!
