the continuing story - oct 22

october 22 2008

Got a letter from school again.

Ofcourse my last letter was completely ignored.

We're forced to have a meeting with the person I filed a complaint against (You know, the one stating that autism is the result of bad upbringing) and the mentor.

They have subscribed him to the final exams.

I sat here crying for a while.
No one at home to see it.

Then I wrote a mail to the psychiatrist of my son, asking if he had any idea how to solve matters, or provide someone to go with me to that meeting.

I'm afraid I'll get so mad there that I shout at them.

I'm not that kind of person, but I know that everyone acts unlike himself when there is far too much pressure. And I don't think I'm a saint and can stay nice to people who put in not the least effort to understand a child.

The fact that they took the decision to force him to take the final exams goes beyobnd my understanding. But it makes clear they haven't understood one little bit of the reason why Nyo wasn't able to do his exams.

I don't know how to deal with this at the moment.
I'm so angry and so completely tired of this all.

  1. Wow - that must be so incredibly frustrating! Hang in there!

  2. I'm sorry people are doing and saying things like this. I guess they just never took the time to understand why and what caused Autism. This shows how much they lack of moral!

  3. I understand fighting with schools to get what is best for your child. I hope that meeting goes the way you would like.

  4. My heart goes out to you. What is so hard to believe is that how do these people get this type of job in education when they are so obviously lacking in any themselves.

    Autism is not new. I don't know how the system works in your country. Do you have a board of education someone that these people are answerable to?

    I wonder if you perhaps approached - which is the National Autistic Society in the UK. They may be able to either act on your belhalf or be able to contact someone that could be of help to you. Their number is 0845 070 4004 - The helpline is closed on Thursday 23 October according to the website.

    I do hope that someone can help you with this - I feel frustrated on your behalf and I think you're amazing to have so much strength.

    My warmest wishes, Polly

  5. I wish you all the best with getting what your son needs. In this day and age it is hard to believe such backwards thinking still exists, particularly in the education community.
