Simply a Moment

"So that's where we are, Ruth.  I'll need your comments by tomorrow morning or this afternoon, if you could manage it."
She rings off and I am left looking blankly at the handset.
We've known it was coming.
We made a lot of noise about it last term.
We didn't want it to be overlooked.
And now it's here.
Just two weeks until The Boy Child's Statement of Educational Needs is reviewed for the first time.
Looks as though I'll be busy for the next hour or so.

Simply a Moment is a monthly theme from the lovely Alexa and you can share your moments there.  I'll add the link once Alexa's post is live.

Gosh, what an important and slightly unnerving moment to record - I am so touched you have taken the time to post with such a deadline to meet. I do hope that you are all able to get just what is needed without any hassle. Thank-you so very much for joining in this month, Ruth, and it is always a pleasure to see your name in the Linky :).

I would have been unsettled by the urgency. I hope everything falls into place and TBC has a wonderful term.

Sian said...

Best of luck with it! I hope your hour turns out to have been a profitable one

good luck. stay strong and firm. Remember you are TBC's best advocate

Oh, I remember those moments all too well - from 26 years ago, before we took my son out of public school to homeschool him. I hope all goes well. Don't let them convince you that they know better than you do, because they don't. A mama's heart is the best measure.

I usually see this from the other side, as one of my jobs is secretarial work for our SENCO. I hope that the people you deal with at your school are as dedicated to their pupils as you would expect them to be. No one knows your boy like you do so I know you will fight for every bit of help you think he needs. Good luck x

As a new visitor to your site I don't really know what this is about but the beautiful way you have written it makes me feel that it is terribly important. Good luck x

I wish your fellow a good year and review. I remember those days with Nick at high school and middle school. Sometime I don't always agree with teaching methods and I am unsure how your home land handles it all. America is so low on education it makes me very sad. I think Miriam's comment is written perfectly. Each day is a struggle for all of us, I think the way we have to handle it is what matters. Prayers for the boy child and you as well.

The paperwork looks daunting--wishing you the very best outcome to this challenge.

I hope your hard work pays off and TBC gets the support he needs. When it comes to your own child, you are the greatest expert.

Heather said...

wishing with all my heart that he gets the help he needs Ruth. I know from experience with my boy that its a dreaded time as you so want him to be able to work well independently yet you value the extra help that comes with the Statement. xx
