My friend and I are (after 3yrs of planning!) in the final stages of setting up a support service for children with high functioning autism in mainstream schools in London. Aswell, as providing individual pupils with ASD 1 to 1 social support during playtimes we will be providing art therapy workshops and autism awareness sessions for whole classes. It will be offered to schools on a termly basis and initially geared towards yr 3- yr 6 children.
We would love to hear from parents about their childs experiences of mainstream education so please please reply with feedback- good or bad!
Also, please let us know what you think about our proposed service as it'd be great to hear what parents think about it.
