It’s been so long since I’ve blogged that there may be nobody left to read this! I think it reflects how hard the last year has been for us at 3girlstogether. There came a point where I felt that nobody would want to continue reading me talking about lack of access to ASF, lack of support from SWs and other profs, and patchy support at school. I was even boring myself talking about the vicious circle we were trapped in.
Today I have decided I will try to think about how far we have come since my last post. For this post at least I will gloss over everything else. So here is what has changed in the last 9 months:
- We have survived another year at school.
- We have accessed ASF for assessments by specialist providers and have (nearly) got the finalised reports and costings for therapeutic input and further assessments.
- I have tribunal dates for the LA’s refusal to assess for EHCPs for the girls.
- I have finally found a nanny/support worker who will enable me to work and also give me one to one time with the girls each week.
- Our local peer support group is going from strength to strength and now has over 60 members.
- The girls now have a paediatrician which means they can quickly access other specialist referrals.
- In term time I do something that I enjoy one morning a week
Actually when I look at that list I feel a little bit proud of what I have achieved in 9 months. Maybe I should blog more often!
