My son at college1
Yesterday 21:32 AndreaKaren123

Hello please can some help point me in the right direction to get help for my son at college? My son is 21. He has learning difficulties, ADHD and depression. He is at college, doing his level 2 brick laying. Or he was up until 2 weeks ago , when he was taken of it for shouting/swearing ... He was excluded for the rest of that week, when he back to college they put him on working skills, which he has done many times. When he was secondary school, they did not help him at all.. He walked away with no qualifications. He got very little help in infant/primary school.
College are trying to get him to do an apprenticeship etc. My son is not ready for this, I have told them many times. The college, have said some times his mood is low, which they assume is lack of motivation, which is not the case at all. Is there any one I can write to, to help my son ?
Thank you for your time and patience in reading this

Ring the college up and ask to speak to the person in charge of special needs/additional needs provision.
