Hello I am a mum to a fantastic little boy who has austism.

There is problem at school with him at break and lunch time as part of his disability.

the school is fantastic and have explored every way they can to slove this problem with no sucess.

the next step is for him going onto the computers during these time, i really don't want this for him, it breaks my heart to think of him alone during these time ( even if he will be happy doing this)

i have a meeting ( yet again) with the school so what cna anyone suggest

Hi there

We've moved this to 'Special Needs: Children' now.

Welcome to the board. There are many of us here with dc with asd who I'm sure can help with suggestions and advice (as well as all of us who can give support even if can't help with specific problem).

Can you tell us a bit more about the problem? I agree with you that I wouldn't want my ds alone at lunchtime etc either (he has asd too). Is it a problem of lack of support?

Ds's primary school ( is this primary?) did a combination of things,
They had a day when his year could use the computers if they chose - so he was always in there, they had a lunch where one of the sports people ( they used an outside agency to teach sports) came in and DS, plus his chioce of 2 firends, and others who needed it played team sports to help the team playing/social aspect of it. Then another day a TA ran a social skills club - where carefully selected other children came and played games and discussed things that were causing them problems/difficulties or just general social isssues.
There was a day of supervised "free play" in the playground, and I think that he was allowed to read a book on the last day. - These were all lunches by the way - I'm a bit hazy about the support at break-times.

Does that give you some alternative ideas to suggest to the school? DS's school were a bit shock that I didn't want him on the computers every day.
