I avidly read all of your posts on appeals in case I needed the knowledge on 1 March. Thankfully I didn't. I do want to say that having ploughed through the Special Needs system for years I know exactly how confusing, misleading, and totally mind boggling
the Education system as a whole is. Just when help is most needed, officials seem to go to ground. Those supposedly in a position to help are often misinformed themselves and little or no help.
In contrast, your advice is impartial, totally professional, helpful and informed.
Which brings me to the point I want to make. Etienne, it must be said you are a rarity in this world. Your willingness to devote so much of that most precious commodity, time, to this forum marks you out as truly wonderful.
