I am desperate for your views. My son has high functioning autism and he is 5. We are looking for a good school who will be able to meet his needs, with a nurturing environment and somewhere were they are going to build on his strengths (he is very able academically). The problem I had with schools I visited is that they compare him with severe cases the had in the past and don't really challenge him to improve (given the diagnosis they just think he doesn't understand/he is not able). Any experience of mums in the borough who have their high functioning/aspergers kids in a decent school, please share your views. Also, any schools that you would avoid?
