I Will Fight Fight Fight

The next few weeks are very important to regards Zak’s schooling. As Zak has now turned 4 years old, he is going to start school in September. Despite having autism, global delay development and Gene 16p 11.2 micro duplication which all hinder the way he learns and takes information in. The powers that be have said that Zak will attend a mainstream school without any support.

Now my argument is that he DOES need support at school whether it be mainstream or a special school. He can’t cope in noisy environments, he doesn’t eat solids, he is not toilet trained or showing any signs of toilet awareness. He has very limited speech and is currently having speech and language sessions. Has no concept of feelings whether it be his own feelings or that of others. He is very adult led rather than peer led – which is common in children with autism.

These are just a few arguments that I have the list is long and endless, yet they still say he doesn’t need support. We will see who wins this fight. All I am going to say is that Zak will get the right support HE NEEDS whatever it takes.
