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.
