I’m looking for some advice, hints/tips in connection with my son point blank refusing to attend school.
My son has attended on the odd day, but he has struggled with this. He has shared support, but not for the full day.
He has communication problems, which adds to his anxiety, as he has others laughing at him, which completely knocks his confidence. He does have an iPad that can speak for him, but is embarrassed to use this, as he’s very well aware that he doesn’t speak the same as the other children.
My son is a very bright, placid boy, who is just finding the whole mainstream schooling extremely difficult. The school are trying their best to reintroduce my son back into school, but the problem I’m having at the moment is getting him out the door in the first place. I’ve tried everything I can think of.
His safe zone is home, and I know the longer he doesn’t attend school, the harder it will be to get him there.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? Even any tips on what to ask his school, as it’s difficult to know exactly what goes on at school, with me not being there, therefore I’m not too sure what to ask for to help move things forward in the right direction.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this post.
