Jack's start to 2016

Mon 15 Feb 2016 4:56pm

Hello everyone, 

You'll all be glad to hear that T804 is going aswell as I could have hoped for, 14% OCAS so far, TMA-01 score due any time now. 

I tweet Tim Peake everyday, I can't get enough of seeing him on EVA. 

Anyway I would like to ask for some advice. I need to choose my 3rd OU module for the MEng. I'm deciding between T889 problem solving and TU812 managing systemic change.

T889 is about developing and improving my own personal skills (P-S is recommended in engineering).

EHCs and private schools

Fri 29 Jan 2016 2:06pm

Hi there

My son Michael is 9 and in year 4 at a private school.  He was diagnosed in October 2014, although the school had regarded him as being on the spectrum some time before that (his Year 1 teacher flagged him) and it took some time to get a diagnosis.

Request for parental participation in research based around autistic children and the support available.

Sun 24 Jan 2016 10:36am

Hello, my name is Fiona

I am a student at The University of Huddersfield currently studying BA (Hons) Childhood studies. As part of my studies I have chosen to conduct research and write a dissertation on autistic children and their parents/carers.  

I have created a questionnaire for parents/carers of autistic children to complete and am hoping that some of you will fill it in for me. 

The questionnaire is related to special schools and mainstream schools and it will ask for your views on both of these.

Tricky problem with school

Wed 2 Dec 2015 5:03pm

Bit of a strange one, but very annoying. My son Leo is 5, he's at mainstream school full time. He's coping pretty well and he likes it.

The problem is that his attendance is being affected by his tendency to have a runny tummy. About 80% of the time it's like he has diarrhoea. But he doesn't , it's just the way he is. He has been examined by various doctors, has had blood tests and no medical issues have been found. It's probably irritable bowel (I think) but we don't have any diagnosis other than its nothing sinister, don't worry.

Well ,it's been a while since I've managed to log in . What a journey education is , you think you're getting somewhere , then it all goes pear shaped and you are left with the decision of whether to take ds out of school , or keep him in whilst looking for another . 2 years at school , 5 teachers and a few assistants down the line ( left school ) it seems it's beginning to fall apart and are now thinking if putting in place things which were suggested in his statement . Lessons learnt , ask precisely what strategies are being implemented . One question ,"where is the consistency? "
