Round and round in circles with my v dyslexic dyscalculia 13 yr old daughter. She also has- of course- v v poor working memory and v v slow processing. We are overseas so looking at boarding options- so far :
She’s been at Shapwick for a year but not particularly happy and Ed Psych feels not making the progress she should.
Mark college- Too ASD slanted. ( I have an ASD son who was there)
Appleford- The only 3 children I know there are all ASD
Bredon- never get back to me- Ive sent them her report twice now, they seem all keen then ...nothing.
Clayesmore- Looked at her report and weren’t sure.
Milton Abbey- As above.
She’s a sweet little girl, average intelligence but with huge deficits as above, and massive anxiety and low self esteem, I’m not looking all singing and dancing but a friendly caring school where she can make nice friends and be helped through some qualifications. But where is this school? Any advice so gratefully received.

Oh yes forgot that one! She trialled there and was offered a place but no girls her age at the boarding house. She was sharing with a 16 year old and wasn’t happy . Shame- i liked the head and the school seemed nice...any other suggestions by any chance?

Hi cherrypye,

I'm also looking at a school my my dyslexic daughter. She is turning 11. I quite liked Brendon and they have invited her over. I'm going to visit Appleford soon.

Which school did you choose at the end?

Hope you found a suitable school for your girl.
