Hello everyone,

I have a really good SENCO and she comes up with some really good ideas to help with coping with Dyspraxia and someone suggested that every two weeks or so i talk to my SENCO and she can talk to me about problems i may have with living with dyspraxia. i was wondering if anyone has done this in the past?

Thank you!

That sounds like a really good and helpful idea. I personally didn't have anything like that at my secondary school but my SENCO and the other members of her department, although lovely, were seriously overworked-50% of my year group (which had 75 students in it) were on the Special Educational Needs Register and 10 of those, including me, were statemented.It was a similar story in most of the years when I was at the school-my old psychiatrist expressed concern when she heard that the school was being taken over by another headmaster as she admitted that she and most other psychiatrists/learning disability professionals in the county had used my school as an "unofficial special school" where they would send a lot of children with complex needs who didn't meet the criterai for a special school but would not be able to cope in a large comprehensive and could not go to a private school because most of them were very academically selective and did not have free SENCO support. There are less children with SEN there now. If I was in a school that did not have such demands on the SEN department, I would take advantage of an offer like that. I hope it works for you.
