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.
