My DS 12 in prep school, has been diagnosed with “generalized learning “ difficulties and is about 3 years behind peer group. Am having a nightmare finding a suitable school in London or surrounds .There seem plenty of providers for a specific LDs such as Dyslexia and Dyspraxia but nothing for generalized.

Has anyone cracked this one ? Would love some help

Sorry. I can't help with London School ideas but does she have to be in a MLD school or can she stay in mainstream with good support?

Depends where you are. Canbury in Kingston, Riverston Eltham or Egerton Rothesay Berkhampsted may be worth a look.

Egerton Rothersay in Berkhamsted.

Try The Moat in Fulham. Specialises in SpLDs but takes many children with other related-type difficulties.

When you say your son is 3 years behind his peers. Is this 3 years behind his peers at an academic London prep or generally 3 years behind. Do you think he is on course to pass 5 GCSE,s? Are you looking for a non selective or less selective mainstream indie or won’t he cope with that?

Did you find a suitable school for your DS Kemiad? I'm looking for a similar school for my DD.
