Need info about schools for 12 year old with ASD in/near Leeds?

The Young Donki is (I hope) finally going to get an EHCP. I tried to get a statement for him nearly 2 years ago but without his primary school on board (they had not even applied for the top up funding) I failed to get an assessment. I remember 'talking' to you at the time Ouryve.

Secondary school has decided that not only is there a strong case for an EHCP, but that they cannot meet the YD's needs. (He started school refusing about three weeks before the end of term)
MAP meeting is the end of August.
So. I will be looking at specialist privision as soon as I can in September.

Breckenbrough for sure, but I will have to look at provision within authority (Leeds) too. What does anyone know about provision in Leeds for an anxious 12 year old with ASD and writing difficulties (hypermobile hands/fingers) who should be doing GCSE's some (maths/science/computing) at higher level?

There are the SILCs (looking at Allerton High and also West Oaks/Boston Spa) and the Lighthouse free school, but I know little about them.

I don't have any advice, but couldn't read and run, so sorry it's come to this, really hope you can secure the right placement for YD flowers

Thanks Polter. How are you doing?

Poor YD has had a crap year with one thing after another....

Poor YD sad

Apart from being stuck in as ds is refusing to go out, all fine really, we've been lucky to have had the best school year ever shock

It is no fun when they refuse to go out.
The last three weeks of term seem to have set up a real issue with the YD trying to avoid demands and going out even when he has been looking forwards to the outing.
