Moving from Primary to Secondry (Mainstream)

Tue 10 Mar 2009 4:35pm

Hi all,

I have two boys with Autism, the oldest J has a dx of Dyspraxia too, in September 09 he will be moving from mainstream primary to mainstream secondry.  He's going from a school year of roughly 50 pupils to a school year of 1200.  He's going from staying in the same classroom all day to having to negotiate a huge school complex, with lots of noise which he doesn't cope well with.  I am really worried about how life is going to be for him in senior school's picture

How much support do you get from your school?

What are your experiences of getting support from school? Does your child go to a mainstream or 'special' school? What kind of resources are provided - or have you struggled to get them?
