hi all ,
im hoping people here can offer me some help, my sons story is very long and very complex but i will explain what i can.
basically he has a very rare skull condition which has caused him to have mild brain damage, he also has ADHD and autistic tendancies his damage is to left hand side of brain so he has fine motor issues and gross motor issues with his right hand side . he suffers with frustration and agression as a result of not being able to do things .
he has been in main stream until now and should be year 4 in september but in october of last year it was decided his school can no longer manage him , he has a statement for 20+5 and with cluster funding he gets 25+5 basically he cant be alone.
he has been "educated" in isolation for the last school year , him and his TA use the school time out room as his classroom , he rarely mixes with other children as he cant cope in a class of 30, his TA does her absoloute best to adapt the timetable and curriculum for him.
we have applied for him to go to a special school but because he falls between mainstream and SN he has been turned down by every SN school within an hour and a half drive from home , currently we dont know where he will be educated come september . can anyone help with what i can do now?
currently we have the following specilists involved:
Ed phsyc , school senco, headmaster, short stay school, county placement team.
the admissions team have had evidence from :
GOSH , peadiatrition, sure start, ed phsyc, short stay team, clinical phsyc, school and any others we could think of ive lost track of how many!
