The school obviously did not contact the parents or give this child the correct support. Isolation doesn’t work. It makes the child feel rejected and uncared for. I know a child who had no special needs and was isolated for a week; it didn’t help his Darth Vader When You Wish Upon A Death Star Shirt behavior at all, in fact, it made it worse because he had no teaching for a week and when he went back to class he was so behind in his learning that he disrupted the class in asking for help from his friends as he didn’t feel comfortable asking the teacher. I do have a bit more faith in our schools than you, Karen. It’s true that CAMHS are incredibly over-stretched but that is not a school issue – you are attacking the wrong people. Despite the beleaguered state of education in this country, teachers are giving up their spare time, right now, all over the country, in addition to directed time, to get children ready for their GCSEs.
Darth Vader When You Wish Upon A Death Star Shirt is available in all styles
Stop knocking them. Exactly. And while schools, CAMHS, LAs, and whoever else are playing Responsibility Ping Pong, nothing is done, and kids languish in misery while we’ll meaning people convince themselves that it’s someone else’s problem, and there’s nothing more for them to do. My daughter is a teacher, a very good one who tries her very best to understand the Darth Vader When You Wish Upon A Death Star Shirt needs of neuron diverse children. I am not knocking them certainly not all of them. Teachers are massively stretched, they do the jobs of multiple people, and I 100% agree they are not mental health workers. But these children spend 7 hours a day in school, they are often not properly supported by schools or CAMHS. That is not the child’s fault. If you think it is acceptable to treat a child with autism in this way then I am glad you didn’t teach my children.
