Just thought I'd start my own hello Thread (and wanted to say hi to Carole!).
I have two boys with Aspergers (one with ADHD, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia as well). One boy is in mainstream and one is in a specialist, residential school.
I've been through the Statementing/Appeal/SENDIST malarcky, so might be able to offer a little advice to others.
