Facing my concerns about transferring to a special school

autism special school and facing our concerns about leaving mainstream

The past few months have passed by in a blur as we prepared for an emergency review of our Son's EHCP and a request by his school for him to be transferred to a special school, as they feel that despite best efforts they are unable to meet his needs. 

Finding the right school to meet all of his needs has been the biggest challenge for us, as identifying the school is down to the parents and you are not given much advice or direction on where to look.

Diagnosed with autism - One year on

It is exactly a year since the week it was confirmed that my Son likely has autism, and I started my blog and posted my first entry about the week we found out.

Reading back on my first blog post I can see how far we have come in the past year in understanding his needs, and yet we still face many of the same questions around how best to support him going forward.
