Special Needs school Transport Appeal

(1 Post)

Hi all,

My son who has been diagnosed with Autism he is quite severe, non verbal and has sensory issues as well. He is due to start special school in September. We filled out forms for transport ( where they will pick him up from home n drop him back) and we thought we would get because of his condition.

Unfortunately we received a letter saying that instead of transport they will be providing a travel pass for him so that I can take him on public transport. He hates publics places due to noise, other people, anxiety and is unpredictable with his walking.

We have to appeal with 15 days! !!!

Has anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice please?

Thank you
