TESTIMONY.  Disability: this mother’s obstacle course to find educational help for her little daughter

the essential

Little, Ambre, from Lotoise, suffered from hearing problems. If she has had surgery since, it has caused cognitive and language delay. Now enrolled in CP in a Corrèze school, she had to manage for several months without AVS (School Assistant). Her mother, Myriam, fought for her to have one.

” I did not know what to do. As a mother, this situation was very hard to live with,” sighs Myriam. Since September, this Lotoise has been fighting every day to find an AVS (school assistant) for her granddaughter Ambre, enrolled in CP in a Corrèze school, due to delays in understanding. By the end of November, she had knocked on every door and felt against the wall. But the good news finally arrived a few days later: Ambre will have an AVS before the Christmas school holidays. An obstacle course for this Lot family.

“Amber had hearing problems when she was little. She had surgery but she has cognitive and language delays. Understanding is difficult for her. We will ask the other students to take out the book and open it to page 6, Amber will not know. what to do,” explains Myriam. The little girl is entering first grade. In September, the MDPH (Departmental House for Disabled People) of Lot reported that the child must benefit from human assistance at school (an AVS). Neither one nor two, the mother begins the process with the school in Corrèze. From September, she sends the first requests.

But a first refusal was issued. “It was for a geographical reason because we live in the Lot but Ambre goes to school in Corrèze, in another department. And then, they ended up telling us that there was no budget,” regrets the mother. The latter moved heaven and earth to find an AVS. An assistant, whom Myriam knows, approached Ambre’s mistress to help the little girl. But no follow-up is given.

Amber was tired at school

Myriam even called the Ministry of Education, desperate to find a solution. “The lady, in charge of children and disabilities, told me that if the DSDEN (directorate of departmental national education services – Editor’s note) did not have the budget, she could not do anything. She advised them to put them on notice, but I didn’t want to come to that. I said to myself: I will finance the AVS. I would have done anything for my daughter,” says the mother.

So for several months, Ambre managed alone in class. “The teacher does what she can. But my daughter is exhausted. She goes to the speech therapist twice a week, she does psychomotor skills sessions… She gets tired. Plus, she’s a little girl who always wants to try. It’s in the first year that she needs help, that’s where we learn to read, to write… I don’t want her to fall further behind,” confides Myriam. And a few days ago, the long-awaited good news arrived: Ambre will have an AVS by the Christmas holidays. A relief for the whole family.

For its part, the DSDEN of Corrèze affirms that there was “no refusal, no fundamental or underlying problem”. Jean-François Lévêque, academic director of National Education Services, explains: “There was doubt as to whether it was the place of education or the MDPH which had sent the notification to implement it. Now it’s clear: it’s at school. There was recruitment at Pial (localized inclusive support centers). We are trying to create active breeding grounds so that these people can return to the children as quickly as possible. For Amber, everything will be unlocked. The little girl will have help before the holidays, the contract is being signed. »
