    Formal assessments prior to assigning additional teaching resources is standard from my experience.
    Or that 😀

    Inclusion support will only be granted with a diagnosis. Centres don't generally go down that path unless they really think they will be granted the funding as there are quite a few hoops to jump through.
    I completely understand your stress as the way this educator has gone about this is very strange to me. Under no circumstances are we to imply a diagnosis ever, especially in a general conversation. We are there to support the child and not to make out like they are a nuisance regardless of their behaviour. I'm really sorry your child has an educator that is behaving this way.

    To get funding, it involves the centre doing a lot of paperwork and in my experience working in Ldc, they do not look at this as something that is easy nor quick. Just something to think about.

    Not in any centre that I have worked in. No inclusion support is given unless there is a formal diagnosis.

    I'm a bit suprised that the psych wasnt aware that getting a diagnosis is a part of the application process for inclusion funding. Its pretty standard &has been for a long time.

    Not at this stage, our psych doesn't think DS has anything remotely close to ASD. She was only saying to take the extra support as it wouldn't hurt.
