My little boy starts School in September he isn't even 4 yet he'll be one of the youngest in his class, he has a DX of ASD and thankfully we have a SEN in place already.
DH and I went to look round his mainstream School last week and pretty much what we expected a School to look like..Lol. We have a multi agency meeting next month to meet his TA and the School SENCO etc but I'm feeling sick with worry, I can't stop crying, I'm just worried sick about him going, I know it's great that we have the SEN already in place but he's so young, he's still in nappies, a very timid little boy, he would just go off with anyone and he doesn't have many words. How is he going to cope?
It was mentioned that he spend some time in the School Nursery but I don't really want that as he'll stand out like a sore thumb (he's really tall) also it would feel like a step backwards I want him to be with his own age group, do I have control of what I do or do not want. Also what happens during break times and lunch time if he stays will he just be left, I'm worried about the older children making fun of him.
I know that I can raise my concerns at the meeting next month, I'm just so worried and losing sleep about it.
