My child was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome about 2 years ago. After nearly 4 years of school, i have been struggling with my child to get settled in at school. When things don't go right for him he has, what we call them, meltdowns on a regular basis and he does get violent.
After searching the web, i found something called flexi schooling. Where they are at school part time and home schooled part time. Just wondering if anybody else has tried this? And if they have has it made a difference?
Can't afford to give up work and do full time home school. Any thoughts or comments would be highly apprieciated.
My daughter is doing part time school. But I think it can lead to things not getting done.
My daughter has been through a lot of schools and has not attended the last half term mostly.
Shes ok when she is there and then has melt downs at home because she finds socialising hard to understand.
Her school have got a psychologist ready for her.
I would try and keep him in school and to push for learning new ways to cope.
Your area could have a home schooling network. I would go to the local Methodist church and library to see if there's any info. But you will still have to be with him.. so then not work. I did it for a while and it can work and my local groups had constant meet ups. You will have to have a home check. So when I was doing that I took her to a weekend school that most people go to for extra help and they did maths and English with her and she was fine because she didn't have to socially interact.
