Hello My 6 year old son is currently awaiting an ADOS test, the consultant seemed to indicate he will probably get an ASD diagnosis. My question is regarding changing schools with SEN. Unfortunately prior to this, when we applied for schools, we did not get a place at our local school and were offered a place at a newly opened academy school two miles away. The drive to school takes at least 25 minutes in the morning through rush hour traffic and the town centre and it does not help my son start the day well at all. It has been very difficult to get him to go into school over the past few months and he frequently tells us he hates it. I really feel that a walk to our local school (0.4 miles away) would be so much better for him, fresh air, friends living locally. What I am asking is, would a SEN diagnosis help his chances of being offered a place? He is currently on the continued interest waiting list. Thanks for reading and for any advice you can offer.
