Me again - I have woken up with a purpose this morning...3 posts and counting.
I have a 10 yr old recently diagnosed with ADHD and social communication disorder.
He will be moving in to secondary school in Sept and I wondered if anyone had experience of the above schools, or others, for children with ADHD.

Hi, my son has been at Slindon for a year. He has asd. I don't want to run it down as I'm sure it's great for lots of boys, but personally I feel that the boys aren't sufficiently supported socially and particularly in unstructured free time, to the extent that we feel our sons anxiety levels have actually increased since being there. The SENCO is permanently off sick and i don't have confidence that teaching staff have the knowlege or training to support boys with social communication disorders. We are looking for another school because of this. I have contacted Moonhall but dyslexia is the main criteria and they read his statement and said no without even letting us meet them! I understand from a friend more house has a great reputation and I've got an appointment to view first week of February. I am hoping to book for an open day at seaford as its meant to be amazing with lots of brilliant facilities, but it's quite a big school and it's expensive and I think it's unlikely we'd get funding.

I have a son at More House with a similar diagnosis to your son Liblob.
