We'll keep a close eye on things---brush it under the carpet and pretend it never happened.

I'll be in touch later today---won't be hearing from me anytime soon.

Stupid things professionals say:

Head Teacher--- Bullying doesn't happen in my school, I watch out of windows.

Camhs--- he makes good eye contact ( O sat with his back to them while they had a conversation).!!

"I understand how difficult this must be for you" = ooh goody, I can blame you
"I agree with you, but I need to submit this to my manager as s/he has the final decision" = ooh goody, I can blame my manger
"I have to be honest with you..." = ooh goody, I can blame the system
"I've read your papers" = oh goody, I can blame the honest idiot who wrote something down

Specialist Teacher "this is the most clear cut case of a non-diagnosis we have ever seen"

clinical psychologist 5 months later "her developmental history alone is indicative of an ASD, her play skills are currently at a 2-3yr old level"

Paediatrician "he has siginificant difficulties and won't cope well at school but he won't get a statement as they're stopping them soon"

"You don't want to give him a label or he'll think he's got something wrong with him" HV = I know I ballsed up and got it wrong but I'm not going to admit it.

"Do you think the self harm could be habit? she seems perfectly happy to me" HT= I know the teacher is dire but I can't get rid of her others have tried before. Now stop complaining.

"Do you think she is picking up on your anxiety?" Autism Outreach = We both know that the teacher is the cause but it's not in my remit to criticise a teacher so I'll shift the blame to you instead..

me to dsw=We are after overnight respite in the school respite cottage, mencap and school suggested to us that we ask for it.

dsw to me=Although the cottage takes from 5 and you have 2 sn kids, I can pretty much tell you now that you wont get it, until they are about 10-11.

In other words not even going to try, sure its fine though everyone of them that sat on the panel this week to decide what we can have had the mandatory 8 hours sleep and was totally refreshed grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Whist she is here she will have our full attention at all times = We have a room which locks from the outside
We follow the national curriculum = We have lots of paper and colouring pens
We understand your concerns = We think you have Munchausen`s
we have a policy of accountability = It`s your word against ours
The school has worked hard to improve standards = My children are in a nice school so really I couldn`t give a rat`s arse
We have staff who are totally dedicated = They`re on long-term sick and we don`t expect to see them again

From more than one teacher

------ is an only child - meaning you have no clue about parenting and it is your fault.

reply: no you have taught our older son, you know the happy, outgoing, enthusiastic, top of the class student who has never been in trouble and is a credit to the school.

response: Oh. - rats we will have to look for another excuse

"But he is happy at school" = It must be your fault he's unhappy at home

"His teacher is very good" = His teacher is just out of college and has read a couple of books on dealing with AS children

"We are taking action regarding this bully as per council guidelines" - We are placating you as per our ineffective council guidelines

"We (SaLT) have finished his therapy but if you need us please get in touch" - We showed you how to use social stories now s*d off because we have a budget to stick to and we're not offering you anything else which may be of use to your child

"(nervous laugh from CAMHS practitioner) = We don't have a clue what to do when your child says he would rather die than go to high school

"Would you like SS involved?" - We have had enough of you and would like to pass the buck

And finally....and I don't think this has any other meaning...

Acting heads retort when I asked for extra supervision at break times for LB who is being bullied:
"No-one gets one to one supervision in this school and there are other, more needy children here than LB"

Old primary school head when discussing possibility of statement

You are a victim of your own success - seems fine to me
Don't you think children who throw chairs and such more deserve a statement - he's quiet how can there be any issues, I don't understand internal anxiety.

Not sure I have translated her comments exactly was a bit of a mystery really, or a load of rubbish.

There is no need for A to be anxious = you're making a fuss about nothing
Contact us if you have any concerns = but I'm sending this after the end of term so you can't
I have not taught A this year (from school report ) = I don't know who is in my lessons

From SW assessing for Disabled Facilities Grant. = We have contacted LLeighs OT and she states it would be beneficial not essential you will therefore not be considered for a grant = We do not understand autism/ SPD in anyway, shape or form, why on earth would you even consider making adaptions in a home for children who can walk and talk,. (said as much in the assessment)..Get lost and save it for those with an obvious physical disability.

A classic:

"Don't worry, all kids do ????? " = I am clueless
"You worry too much" = I am still clueless
"My kid's bedroom is untidy too" = Yes, I am totally clueless

"I can see no sign of autism, I understand you might be over anxious because of Jack but try and relax and enjoy her" SALT= I obviously don't have a clue but do show me some respect when I am assigned your SALT three months later following Lucy's moderate to severe autism diagnosis.
