The Boy is on his third school. He's 10. He has been excluded from the other two. This one is a special school, it makes it hard to exclude him. Even though he only goes to school for about an hour each day as that's all they can cope with. I've been desperate for the school to admit they can't meet his needs so I can find him a new special school. Today, a breakthrough at last! This is the wording of the Annual Review from the school:
"We have now reached a point where The Boy is unable to maintain his behaviour at school in order to access any learning. <School name> are unable to effectively support The Boy in managing his behaviour and meeting his needs. As a result of this The Boy requires a change of provision as a matter of urgency..."
So, it's a roundabout way of saying he's excluded. Again. This time I don't mind, I'm just grateful that he might still get an education somewhere. Now it's the fight to get him into the schools I want. But at least the first hurdle is cleared. Here we go.......
This blog is about bringing up The Boy. He's 12 years old and autistic. It's written by The Dad. It's my words, my view. Other people will think differently and have different opinions. Good.
