Dear Family Members and Friends,


Connect Family Network

Secondary school resources

Our son is Dyspraxia and will soon be assessed for autism by a clinical psychologist.

He is 12 yrs and is due to go to secondary school next September. We are wondering what measures should be in put in place for our son by his new secondary school as his primary school has failed to support him and he has received no resources although we have been told he met the criteria.

Just wondered has anyone out there similar situation as we are new and we are a little lost. We have read as much as we can about this but hoping others in similar situation might help and guide us.

All advice greatly appreciated and thanks :) in advance
