Flexi schooling?

DS, 9, has AS. Academically he's achieving but mentally school is very hard.

He struggles so much in the environment, noise, light, busyness etc. He is quite and withdrawn at school but melts down massively once home.

In the holidays he is a different child, calm and happy.

I work part time and financially can't give up my job but am looking at options and wondering about flexi schooling. I only work mornings so could pick him up at lunchtime and educate at home in the afternoon.

Is this possible? Doable? Or a stupid idea?

Definitely not a stupid idea and very possible, depending on school. Not sure the best way to go about it though. Maybe getting an EP on board? Others here will have a better idea of how to proceed.

It's entirely doable, however I believe it's totally at the school's disgression whether you'll be allowed to or not. I know some schools don't allow it with no exceptions, and others are more open to it. I guess the only way to find out is to broad the subject with school and see what the response is. Good luck.
