hello all, im moving to Richmond in jan. My son is on the spectrum but mild. I am looking for schools and was also wondering if the borough has good facilities or support for these beautiful and special children. if not, can anyone recommend a better borough/ school. A very anxious mum!
My only advice would be to contact the Richmond council and see if they could provide any local contacts for support groups in the area. I live near there but I deal with a different council - sorry. I do take my son to a group that also works in the Richmond area called Singing Hands. They do Makaton signing to music. My DS has ASD and I found the structure of the sessions helped with turn taking and sitting in a group. It might be a way to meet the locals?
