I get emails from lots of people with questions about statementing and I do my best to answer them within the best of my knowledge or signpost them to someone who can. I also read lots of stories on message boards from people going through the process who are looking for information or other people's experiences and so I've had an idea.
If you've been through the statementing journey with one or more of your children, I'd like to hear from you. Sharing stories can help other people on the same journey and helping people by raising awareness is what this blog is all about. If you'd like to share your story with others via the Special Needs Jungle blog, please email it to me (Tania) at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like more information before committing, drop me a line. Also, if you have any burning ideas for topics you'd like to see covered, send them in.
Post are usually less than a thousand words and I'd love to include a photo if you wish and/or, if you have your own blog, a link to it. If you'd prefer to remain anonymous, you can change the key names in the story.
I may need to edit for length or legal reasons (we don't want to libel anyone - even though they may well deserve to be named and shamed!)
Over the next few months, I'll be writing more about the new SEN process as it develops - there will be more news from central government soon, maybe in the next week or so. Make sure you subscribe by email to the blog so you don't miss any updates!
