Specialist schools for Yr 9 onwards
We have finally managed to get an EHCP for our 13 year old son. It has been the hardest thing ever to get to this stage.
Our (adopted) son is now 13 and has been out of mainstream education since April. He has Conduct Disorder with significant attachment issues along with dyspraxia, dyslexia, sensory (tactile) issues and the Independent EP we paid for ourselves (!) thinks he has high functioning autism. So there is a lot going on. In the meantime, our son has taken on the persona of a "gangster" or hard knock - think the phrase is "difficult to reach" - it is now impossible to reach. So we are in a desparate situation.
The only good news is that we do now have an EHCP and so have been told by our LA to "find" schools for him! We are trawling the internet but it is so difficult and also really really important so I wondered if anyone here could recommend a specialist school. We are also having now to look at Residential Schools.
We live in the Midlands but really want to make sure we can get the best school setting for him so are looking further afield too.
Thank you in advance if anyone can recommend anywhere or has experience they are willing to share?
