My son 13 and is in a special needs school and they are struggling to meet his needs, they have tried very hard. He went through 3 primary schools and then a year off school trying to get his statement as there was no way i would knock his confidence knowing he would get bullied by sending him to a mainstream secondary school.
The school have now said one more incident then they will permanently exclude him!
What would happen next? I haven't got a clue in what other school to send him to as i thought this one was 'the one'
The next closest SN school is over 30 miles away, but i don't think they would take him because of his aggression issues. After that there is school over 40miles away that may!
I cant afford to home school him, as i need to work to pay the bills albeit part time.
He has been diagnosed with Bi Polar, Aspergers, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, SPD, Encopresis. He is only on treatment for the ADHD and melatonin as the concerta keeps him awake at night.
Trying to get help from the NHS is like trying to get blood out of a stone. I wish I could afford to go private :(
Why does everything have to be such a bloody battle all the time? He desperately wants help to cure his soiling problems but for the last 9 years we have been going round in circles
