Hi all,

My DS is all enrolled to do his test this coming September for 2022 intake.
He has SEN needs and currently is on a My Plan Plus with school applying this term for his EHCP, he has been seen by various agencies including Advisory teachers, Ed Psych, SALT, OT etc and is awaiting an autism assessment and to see the paediatrician.
Currently his only formal diagnosis is Irlen's Syndrome which effects his reading speed and how he processes light among other things, its a neurological syndrome and due to this he struggles to complete the comprehension sections of our practise tests in the allotted time.

We have never done this before so I have no idea of what to expect, we have asked for consideration of movement breaks, potentially in a smaller room where he can have less light if needed, green paper so that he can have less sensitivity from his Irlen's and the potential of either a reader or extra time to account for his slow reading speed.

What is any have people sitting Gloucestershire tests actually managed to get in terms of reasonable adjustments?

Many thanks.

I am bumping this since my daughter's just been diagnosed with ASD and I'm in a similar boat, trying to get a sense of what our chances are etc. Crikey, this is stressful, isn't it?
