    Thank you so much White Mage! I have my reports but they are all more than 12 months they are from my son's assessment. Do I need to get another one from my speech therapist and one from OT and Psych?

    I have been writing some of his goals and the therapy that he will need to achieve his goals.
    It's like the ENQ for school funding... I will use it as a template to demonstrate all his needs.

    How long did it take from accepting your application to planning meeting?

    Think about and talk about your kid on his WORST day.
    You will have to go through every moment of a Bad day. Then a questionnaire, like can they open chip packets unaided.
    Followed by asking what you need.
    Do you need more therapy? What type?
    Do you need equipment? What type?
    Do you want to do social groups? Parental education.
    Whole process can go longer then 2hrs.

    My only other tip is check out to see if there are any council run ndis info nights.
    Things change a lot, good to keep up to date.

    From what I know. People tend to find out their results at different times. Some could be days, some are months.

    Hi everyone!

    We are also experiencing end of year fatigue. Home day for both kids today (I had an unexpected day off) after a late night at local carols last night. I'm pretty happy for rest days, particularly for DD, if it helps her cope with all the chaos and change of Christmas. I'd rather her be well rested and calm so she can enjoy the Christmas season.

    We now know DD's teacher for next year. I'm hoping he'll be a really good match for her. He seems very relaxed which is just what she needs! She is going into a class with no-one from her current class though which I'm a little nervous about. I think she'll be okay though as she hasn't really clicked with anyone in her class anyway. Last transition day tomorrow which should be good. I'm undecided if I"ll take photos of her new classroom/buildings etc to use for transition back to school as I have in past years. She's pretty familiar with the whole set up now so not sure it's needed.

    Lately he's been trying to pull a 4 day school week - for example, on Mondays he'll say 'I don't go to school today, it's a long weekend', or on a Friday 'it's Saturday, I don't go to school on Saturday, so I can stay home'. Whatevs dude!

    This Xmas I'm taking a bit of leave, which I traditionally haven't done, so I'm looking forward to the break. We'll have DS's aunty and cousins stay for 5 days after New Years, that should be interesting (hopefully more enjoyable than I am envisioning!). Our house is small, so an extra 3 people will be a bit full-on at times.

    How are the boys going @White Mage ?
    You're brave @Mod-Degrassi - I'm still scarred from sharing a house with family when we went away a few years ago. It took DD about 10 days to recover from the chaos of a 3 day stay. We now make sure we have separate accommodation so she can have some down time!

    I bet the cousins will have a ball playing together though!

    Nah uh Buddy!
    Sounds like it could be a fun few days. Be sure to drink plenty of wine!


    Ds1 is ramping up the attitude. Officially seeing a lot of 9yr old behavior which I do not care at all. I ruin his life, he hates me, that sort of thing. I think it being the last few weeks of school has truly brought the feral out in him.
    Ds2 continues to keep me on my toes to the point of exhaustion. Truly dreading the holidays.
    My Mum goes to Japan for a month from New Years Eve on, and DH has no leave this holiday, and my 2 sisters have a lot going on. One is house sitting with her new baby and the other is in Canberra for a month visiting in-laws. SO it is truly just me and the kids this holiday.
    DS2 does have 5 days over 2 weeks at his school holiday program, so it is something to look forward to I suppose.


    I have finished the NDIS review meetings. Left DS2s feeling defeated and think we got jiffed for him again, will know soon enough.
    DS1's seemed to go without a hitch and we laid everything on there, I feel we might get somewhere with that. Will know hopefully before the end of the year.. fingers crossed.

    DS1's aide at school has been hinting to me where DS1 will be placed for grade 3 next year and who his teacher might be. Honestly am I little excited for next year.
    Sorry to hear DS2's NDIS review didn't go as planned. Hopefully more luck with DS1's.

    School holidays sound full on if it's just you and the boys. Do they like getting out of the house at all? We've got a really quiet holiday period at home (usually we go away). I'm planning heaps of bike rides, beach trips, swimming and walks. Kids will probably get bored so probably should plan something more exciting I guess

    We’re seeing cracks related to friendships. DD was in tears tonight as she told me how lonely she feels at school. I’m glad the year is nearly done.

    It's really sad when potentially good friendships go to the wayside.
    Kids are so fickle though. Girls can be worse in some ways.
    I was listening to all the friendship stories this week from parents about their kids, and how many of them were unhappy with their new classes for next year, mainly their kids being separated from friends, or kids they dislike.
    I get why they do it though...
    One of them is a pair of twins who on of them have asd, and even though its not their first year apart, he becomes uneasy not knowing where she is.

    Ds1 will be with his friend next year, and be with a teacher he has had before. His grade 1 teacher was moved up to teach grade 3 next year. And will have the same aid.
    Also they will be located in the unit rooms rather then the open space new rooms. I am pretty overjoyed and am optomositic that next year will be a good year for ds1.




    How was everyone's Christmas?? Was Santa good to you this year? Did the kids handle it all ok?
