How well do our schools understand ASD ?

Thu 19 Mar 2009 4:41am

My sons school seem to always be against me! 

We never get the right help and the way I have heard teachers speak to my son is very upsetting. Because the way he was being treated by a class teacher I almost removed him from the school. 

Anybody else face these problems with school and the teaching stuff within it?

Disagreement Resolution - Preventing and resolving disagreements.

Tue 17 Mar 2009 1:34am
Hello Everyone,

Disagreement Resolution - Preventing and resolving disagreements.

This is a brief outline - See Code of Practice page 22, 23, 24 & 25 for full information.

The SEN and Disability Act 2001 placed a new duty on LEAs to set up 'disagreement resolution services' with a view to avoiding or resolving disagreements between authorities and /or schools and parents.

Positive stories - our fantastic school

Fri 13 Mar 2009 11:13pm

After 3 1/2 years out of school and a long slog with our LEA involving 2 tribunals, we have finally got our son (aged 9) into a fantastic small independent school locally.  We had originally not considered it because we (wrongly) thought that it would be 'posh' and elitist............in fact, it is the antithesis of this. It is not a 'special' school, so our son mixes with non-ASD kids.

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
