Hey hun, my little boy has additional needs, hes on the special needs register though he has no diagnosis at present and we are waiting on a statement of need. Having a bit of a hard time with him in school at the minute as his teacher (hes 4 and in Nursery) isnt very symapthetic!

My sister has been out of school for 15 months and is 11yrs old with Autistic spectrum disorder. My mum is not qualified to home educated her and at the moment each school she has tried has turned her down Sad

Thats dreadful Tai, why are they turning her down? Is she stil at primary school and did she apply to mainstream school? I know a lot of schools around here have a specific special needs unit and a primary in the town closest to me has an Autism unit. Its such a shame they cant see that your sister really needs a place!

Its such a long story!!! lol but basically she was excluded from mainstream school for 'holding a child hostage'. All that happened was a child wouldnt let her into the toilets, so she wouldnt let her out! They classed this as reason for exclusion (an excuse because they really couldnt cater for her need IMO) She then went to another school for 1hr A DAY!! But then became unwell with a bowel condition which left her unable to selfcare and the school couldnt care for her and my mum couldnt go in and care for her so to avoid being prosecuted mum had to home educate. However she is a single parent with no financial input from my dad, she has a 19yr old with Aspergers and a 12 yr old with no problems, so she has to work which means my sister needs a childminder. She recieves no other support and homeschooling has proved unsuccesful.
Now apparently she doesnt fit any of the special needs/ autistic unit schools criteria. Her needs have changed since not being in school (she is almost 2yrs behind and has no social input) but they refused to reassess her last year (they have only just agreed to reassess). Due to all of her problems her needs are too complex for mainstream. She cant deal with loud noises/ large crowds amongst other things. The LEA and the coucil etc have completely failed an autistic child in this situation and I think its disgusting.

I cant understand why there are so many excuses though. Because you have special needs does that make you less entitled to an education? How can things aprove for these children without the help that they need are they just destined to float around without a place in society?
Sorry it just really annoys me! lol
If you could sent the address that would be great hun x

Tai that really is disgusting!! Matthew is hopefully going to have statement by the end of this year( its indicated that he wil have a classroom assistant thankfully) and although I have worries about how he will cope I know that the school wont exclude him and theyre a relatively small rural school, if they can cope why couldnt your sisters school??!!

My sister had a 1-2-1 teacher but she was in a large school with approx 30-32 children per class. She was constantly bullied for being different and would get upset/frustrated etc. They wouldnt acknowledge the bullying, just put it down to her 'problems'. They couldnt get rid of her quick enough after she was diagnosed.
