Info needed on the changes from the children's act may 2007
Just had an email about this from our la asking to complete a survey - apparently la must give more help and info to adoptive parents on education - it's very vague and I wonder if anyone knew what this involves in practice - could do with info/help on transitions as our two ad are moving class in sept after two years with same teacher - they are very settled but do not deal with change at all well. Had no real info from school on how to go about supporting them - they are currently in year one and two - anyone know who to contact or anyone have any tips please. Also have a very reluctant reader (youngest) - older one fine but youngest shows no real interest and battles it - very little progress made - has one to one reading at school but not really helping that much. She just hates it. She is going into a harder class next year and I want to help her so she doesn't end up struggling and disliking learning. I think she may be dyslexic - anyone know what age they can test? I of course am not expecting her to be academically gifted I just want her to be happy. Thanks for listening as always without these boards I would be swimming in the dark. A lifeline at times.
