Hi I am totally new to this so I’m not sure if I’m even doing this right. Today my 5yr old son was assessed by an educational psychologist and she has told me he has a Global Developmental Delay. I have had concerns about my son since he was at least 2 and only now since he started school has anyone really agreed or suggested that I had a genuine concern. Today I feel relieved, worried, gutted and a bit lost with it all as it wasn’t something I was expecting to hear. Any advice would be greatly appreciated… what do I do now? What should I be asking? Totally lost
Hi my son has struggled at school since he started formal education. I knew at quite a young age that he was ‘slower’ to pick things up etc, but my other two are girls so I put it down to that. His schools were concerned, but a more formal diagnosis has only just been provided and we (and the school) haveapplied for an EHCP. He is now in year nine and it has come rather late for him. Push for an EHCP now to try and get support in
