Choosing a secondary school


An autistic parent has written a useful post on her blog about choosing a secondary school for autistic children. Purple Ella shares the process they went through to find a suitable school for their autistic son, highlighting areas such as:

  • visiting the school and meeting SENCOs
  • consider the school's environment
  • communicating with your child and taking their preferences into consideration
  • consider transport needs
  • looking at the school's focus.

The blog could be useful to share with parents of autistic children - you can read it here
