I'm new here, so I thought I would introduce myself.
I'm a mum to a 10 year old girl, who was recently diagnosed as having High Functioning Autism. At the same time, we found via Occupational Therapist that she has Sensory Processing Disorder and Developemental Coordination Disorder (Dyspraxia). She is in mainstream Primary School entering YR6 in September, and has to have a lot of support. So after lots of assessments, the school is going for an EHCP.
According to the Occupational Therapist report, the Developemental Coordination Disorder needs to be confirmed by a Paediatrician.
My question is as the School are going for a EHCP would the Developemental Coordination Disorder be equally important to the EHCP (we have an appointment with a Paediatrician to confirm the Disorder but is being done privately) as the Autism diagnoses and the Sensory Processing Disorder ??
