what school

Posted: 05/07/2010 at 17:58

We have parent partnership and i rang them about a list but told me just keep ringing and asking as no list. They have though given me a sheet with questions i should be asking.

 He has sever dyslexia. he in year 5 and not pass key stage one yet in national curriculum. Im waiting on diagnosis for possible fine motor skills dyspraxia, aspergus and adhd. We been going through this process a year now and im now at stand still till next term when they get into schools again.

Iv been told he will need a longer transfer time. He still cant read the time, months or dates so how he read a time table I dont know. His short term memory is none existent. Im really scared for him.

Any advice is more than welcome as it sometimes ghets to me and i break down as i feel a failure.

At present this dilema of where to send my son to secondary school has taken over my life.  I am having to ring every single school to see if they teach life skills rather than GCSE'S as no such list of these schools exist. Im now waiting for relevent people to contact me to answer questions of if my sons needs are going to be met. Why not they just statement him then his needs would be met, he would grow in confidence as he be in school where others are like him. How you meant to have time to be a working single mum who works school hours and fit this in. Take a day off work was my eventual answer and have i had any calls back, you guess i havent.  I could have gone for a run as running has had to give due to the pressure i have been under recently. All I want to be is a good mum wanting the best for her child, but i just seem to be criticised by professionals that i dont do enough.

Sorry about my rant but got get it off my chest

Mansfield Half-Marathon

im feeling much better about 2hr 20. Mile 10 was my killer and i walked up that hil lbut that was the only walking i did. It was horrid in that heat and im now looking forward to robinhood realising how flat it is after 3 years of doing that run.

it was horrid and i wish i had trained for it. I manage to run up to 10m sign then looked at the hill ahead and walked up it was I felt sick and light headed. A nice runner gave me some of her lucazade. When i got to the top i ran the rest of the way. Didnt to my worst time but not great, but only doing 12miles all together in last 6 weeks i dont think it was that bad.

I will now say that nottingham half is flat compaired to that and turkey trot i  did at xmas

iv been out to get shorts for it and hoping to take fluids on when i can in this heat. It will be the hottest iv ever ran in and having head ache all tyoday im dreading it. Spent today drinking water and just think england game and bbq at the end. I havent even ran in 6 weeks so it be a case of getting around the course using my under lining fitness. If do less 2 half hours i be happy. 2.15 exstatic. ilet you  know tomz if i survive the heat.

Help me choose a September marathon

Robin hood you have hills at 2, 4,6 8 miles ish then its pritty flat till the end.  Not really steep hills compaired to cornwall. The second half is a lonely half as most people just do the half.

I did it last year and itsgot curves and hills but good run. Its good day out for all. I may be doing it but i enter on the day. Take it you never been to the park. Robin hood half runs through it as well. Not much use but i prefer that to sherwood pines if you done that
