Have you been in contact with Sheffield Parent Partnership? They should be able to sign post you and from September there will be a 'Local Offer' where you can get an online directory of services and groups in Sheffield becoming available. I would also advise contacting St. Mary's on Bramall Lane as they are running some sessions soon about how funding and education are changing - might be very useful as you won't have access to services usually provided in schools I should think.

Hi chow, I also have an 11 year old with daughter with Autism.

 

I am an active member in a local support group called Ray of Hope, we meet twice a month at the funzone soft play in Hillsborough, there are siblings there also so not all the children attending have special needs :) you can find full details on our website in the link below.

we also have a facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/47995953452/

Ahhhhhh I am so sorry.....

 

 

I think its actually BETTER to home school these days (If you can afford to do it) -- They cant get the attention they need in a big school and they are trying to fill kids heads with crap nowadays..... HOME SCHOOLING IS THE ANSWER!!

 

Im sorry your daughter is having a hard time.. Thank you for sharing this with us,I hope you can find some good stuff for her...

 

Peace and love to you my friend!

Hi 

 

I am new to this site. I have been considering home education for some time . My son is due to start school in september, however he currently attends a Forest Nursery and I would love to be able to continue his learning in this way. I really dispise the idea of him being stuck in a class room all day and conditioned to a stale and outdated education system. I am a qualifed child and family practioner and have a few friends within education also, who would also like to find an alternative. 

 

Please can anyone share information on any current groups or ones starting in Septemeber?

Thank you
