my son has just started high school and after a lovely primary school it’s like I have to educate the high school all over again, it’s exhausting.
advocacy is a full time it feels like hey
I was just talking to friends about this today. High schools are way out of the loop
we did lots of research, and no matter how equipped a school is each of our kids require individual learning plans. It’s a battle, high school has greater expectations. I’m happy with a day without school refusal!
It was NAPLAN for my kiddo this week, she has been off school with bronchitis and and ear infection for the whole week and her teacher sent me an email saying if she didn’t do the test this week, on its set days, she would lose her supports and have to sit the test at a later date with zero supports. How effing revolting is this!! She’s in the support unit, ASD and anxiety, but ok, punish her because she’s been sick.
I’m pulling her out of the testing.
first off, I wouldn’t be happy with them recommending a standardised school test is more important than health 😐 good on you for making a choice you’re comfortable with.
It is, and it’s super important. I’m lucky to have flexible work arrangements so I’m at school face to face daily atm. Well that is what it feels like.
💯 my daughters school have made so many accommodations for her cerebral palsy little did they realise it would actually be her autism she needed the most assistance with to begin with. While I am so grateful for the wonderful school l know if it was just the autism diagnosis the assistance and inclusion would have looked a lot different.
