For children the most important agency will be the SENO – Special Education Needs Officer and the state agency to apply for your allowances as a carer. You can use your allowances for therapy with private services or anything that helps you or the child to live a fulfilled life. Approximately 300 euros a month at least.
Why is the ASD Report for Services and Benefits so important?
The report from the psychologist who does the assessment tells the people who work with you or your child what they have to do to help or to make their service work for you.
So for example it will give recommendations on how your child can best access the curriculum to keep up with their work or it can inform the school what your child can tolerate or what they have difficulties with. Then the school can adjust their demands to accommodate them.
Is a diagnosis enough?
In a word NO. All the diagnosis says is that you or your child have a certain condition. It doesn’t give any details of what you or the child will need to access the school curriculum or services. You need to have The Report and that is given after assessment.
