So pleased to hear the truth was believed. Hopefully it will be quick to tribunal and back in to work. She should really get compensation for they way she has been treated and made to feel.
Mum to AS Big Fish (19, 16 years at home) and AS Little Minnow (13, almost 6 years at home), came separately, and now a wonderful, feisty horse who lets me escape from kids with attitude and the drudgery of disability services and a top of the range adapted van provided by the council fulfilling their legal requirements!

Thanks for the replies. Something interesting that comes out of this case is the importance of seeking diagnoses for our children. It was really important that I could prove to the lawyer that DD had been diagnosed with dyspraxia as a child (along with the other diagnoses). This prompted her to arrange for the psychologist to reassess DD. The disciplinary hearing also paid close attention to this. In their judgement they noted that they had seen for themselves that she nearly stumbled and tripped. They had also asked her how her dyspraxia affected her when she was working in the nursing home. She explained to them the special measures she had to take when she was responsible for pouring tea from the tea trolley to avoid spilling it. I think the police and procurator fiscal will have reconsidered proceeding with the court case once they were made aware of the dyspraxia defence.
Adopted my two children 22 years ago, when they were aged 6 & 7. We had many problems. They were eventually diagnosed with ADHD & FAE. DD with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and PTSD. DD was very ill with ME for 3 years. Now in their late 20's, have settled down a lot. DD works. DS has a young child.
