I have a 9 year old DS with diagnosed dyspraxia, sensory processing and also possible Aspergers/ASD (just starting the diagnosis process for that). He is bright and doing well academically in a MS school but obviously struggles in other areas. We are just starting to look at MS secondary schools (state and private options) and I am really keen to try and get under the skin of which school would be right for him - I want to know which schools would nurture / celebrate individual strengths etc. as well as understanding what their special needs provision is like. What questions should I be asking? Please share ideas for questions to ask to help me tease out the right school based on your own experiences! Thanks so much
