6 year old refusing to attend school

Mon 27 Aug 2018 8:48pm

Hi everyone 

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.

Speech course study: Recruiting parents of minimally verbal children with autism.

Tue 10 Apr 2018 4:14pm

The Autism Research Centre in Cambridge is looking for volunteers to take part in a new research study. We are running a pilot randomised controlled trial of a speech course aimed to help parents to develop the oral-motor articulation of speech sounds in their child/ren with autism. The course is commercially available on the platform Cambridge Autism Learning (http://cambridgeautismlearning.com/), which is a community interest company jointly owned between Linguisticator and the Autism Research Trust.
