Hi, I’m wondering if anyone has any experience of school having a totally different opinion on your child’s needs?
My son has been under assessment since her was 2 years old. He is now 9, he has daily panic attacks around going to school, spends most of the morning on the toilet because of his nerves, has sensory issues and has made no solid friendships since starting school.

Hello my son is 19 he has Aspergers. He starts arguments with me I'm his mum. Then always says I started them when I didn't but he really believes this ! He calls me some disgusting names and just keeps ranting and ranting even though you ask him to go away or I shut the door hoping he will go away but he just keeps going. but the thing that really worrys me is that he really believes it's all me when it's not . Does anybody else experience this please, loun900
