  1. And now the original detention has been ruled unlawful. So pleased for them both.
  2. I'd be straight on the phone to ask the EP what school they thought was suitable. They do generally know what they're talking about.
  3. Speech and Language Therapy, sometimes known as SLT.
  4. Sounds tough going! Hopefully a referral to CAMHS will come pretty swiftly and you can start to get some answers.
  5. It's worth mentioning to the bus depot/transport coordinator that you're having a bit of difficulty, what do they advise. The other thing is that schools very often offer a bit of additional training to the bus staff.
  6. I built in opportunities for sensory input throughout the day. So a chance to bounce, some rolling up in duvets, a visit to softplay, and the thing he likes best, joint compressions, which make him melt. Best to have a bit of structure round it so that he's aware his needs will be met and he will, over time, be able to wait.
  7. We have a swing seat in the garden (on our third one) which gets used for very gentle rocking early in the morning and when my son comes home from school, even in the snow.
  8. Has she ever had an EEG? Been to the neurologist? Just wondering if epilepsy has been ruled out? Recommend www.fledglings.co.uk for bed-wetting products and www.turn2us.org.uk for information about possible sources of grants to pay for them. Households with an income under £30,000 in receipt of DLA at middle rate for care can apply to the Family Fund.
  9. My favourite snake oil story was told to me by Paul Shattock. He said the original snake oil was part of Chinese herbal medicine and came from Chinese water snakes. In the US it was made from rattle snakes. He swears that analysis of rattle snake oil shows very little of value whilst water snake oil is packed full of Omega 3s. He's a very plausible snake oil salesman, lol. I would do anything to improve my son's life. He is far, far too vulnerable. We still work at things to help, won't ever stop.
  10. There's a new Priory school at Roehampton now (next to The Priory). I went with a friend to visit it before it opened. They were keen to progress students academically.
  11. Baston House? Brand new, but owned by the Hillingdon Manor people. Not what you've specified but worth a look IMHO as I think ASD-friendly independent is as rare as hens' teeth.
  12. Try again, this should be a collage of pictures.
  13. Oh dear, defeated by technology. I've removed the link as I've no idea what you were seeing. I'll try again sometime soon.
  14. Was about to suggest a 'college' placement - the up to 25 option already mentioned.
  15. everything in the photo! it's going to be an adventure playground for disabled children and young people.
