My son has been diagnosed as having mild Asperger's. He is currently in primary and doing ok, is very academically bright and ahead of the majority of the class in terms of reading, numeracy and so on. I teach primary so I know the sort of things he's dealing with. The CAMHS caseworker says that problems usually start at secondary level and that in her experience children like him do better in a structured, more academic, small class sized environment and that a private school might be the way to go. I've had a look on a few of the local private school websites and non of them mention SEN provision (one actually states they vet children rigourously so that they have very few children with SEN other than dyslexia). So, in a roundabout way, what I'm asking is would it be a waste of time even applying if he's going to get rejected because they don't want kids who might bring the results down? What experience do people have either as a teacher or a parent in private schools?
