at the moment my son is attending a mainstream school, but recently we have been told that they do not have the physical room to hold him when his attention is not good. In every other way they have been brilliant with meeting his needs and we feel that he is progressing. But as he is getting older it is becoming more apparent that he is further behind than the other children in his class.
We attended his yearly statement meeting and they are now asking if we think it is time for him to attend a school for children that are autistic. I only want what is totally best for him. But should we try to keep him in mainstream or not. Please share with me your stories as this is becoming a heartache for i have a fear of taking him from what he knows.
