    Hi Louise, welcome to your SENCO role! It’s great that you are able to make a difference in terms of seeing progress but I think it’s really important to look at the big picture. I would definitely make a referral for assessment for ASD because although you may be meeting needs now when the pupil transfers to another class or setting it could be difficult. Also you are doing a great service to the child/young person in terms of meeting their overall needs. Once the referral is done you time scale is out of your hands and you will continue to do what you are doing to ensure progress but you’ve set the wheels in motion for health and education needs. The staffing levels of particular services and waiting times are not your responsibility. All you can do is the best for the child in the moment. Good luck. Delyth (delythsendconsulting.com)
