My son started at a mainstream school this year previously in a support class but things weren't working out thankfully local public school accepted him with open arms and just heard back from the department of education that my son is getting his own slso for 2 and a half hours a day.

We feel that's plenty take out lunch recess and fruit break (doesn't need help at break times) that's heaps for one on one during class literally so happy and excited 🤗🤗🤗.

That’s great! I almost fell over when we were told my son and another in his class would share an aide for 3 hours a day (it’s never been more then 1hr/day since yr 1)

It wouldn't be as it's the responsibility of the Dept of Education, not the NDIS.

That's great news mumofamiracle. It's a hard fight, any win is great :)

Oh sometimes a school will try to palm it off so don't let them.

Got even better news today apparently my son can get another hour due to his vision loss (completely blind in his left eye).

We have an opthomoligist appointment next week so we have to get a report off him and they the assistant principal will send that in to get more funding for support.

Woohoo best decision ever to move him

Thank you.

The relief this all brings is just so overwhelming.

We had a psychologist appointment today and she is going to contact the school and ask to have some autism inclusion/awareness in classes or an assembly just so the children understand and  hopefully the anxiety stays away and my son stays happy in this school.

Just feels like an entire weight has been lifted.
