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? "
Hi, im new to this and looking for some advice, my son (9years old) diagnosed with ASD has been being bullied at school for a long time now and i have spoken to the school on many occasions but as soon as they speak to him he says that all is alright and nothing is wrong or that they are not bullying because they have told him they are his friends and that you shouldnt tell on your friends!
Hi, my name is Zoe, and I am a 3rd year university student, studying Music Performance. I am currently writing my dissertation, and looking into 'The Everyday Uses of Music by Children with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder'. I am carrying out a questionnaire to find out more, which is aimed at parents, whose children are aged between 5 and 7 and are on the Autistic Spectrum. The questionnaire is mainly open questions, and is completely anonymous. Would anyone on this forum be willing to fill out the questionnaire for me? I will paste it below.
im hoping someone can give me any advice about how or where to go about getting an iPad for my son for school?
I don't know about you all, but the dark winter nights and short days really get me down and with my anxiety it does not do me much good at all.
Anyway my start to my postgraduate studies have gotten off to as good a start as I could hope for. I'm 2/3 through reading Block 1 and 5 of 8 ANSYS exercises on Block 1 are complete. My biggest worry are the ANSYS finite element analysis software exericses. Without proper instructions on later exercises I worry I can't complete them, but the forums are there and the others on it will offer me advice.
Later today, the Lords will discuss potential changes to Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
Have you received or a young person you know received DSA? If so, what support did your DSA fund, and how did it help you?
