I need to arrange for a private assessment for my son who suffers from ASD. His last assessment was when he was 5 years old and now he is 11 years old. He attends an international school in Italy and they have recently suspended him from school because he has lost control as a result of bullies and not been listened to by teachers - in particular the head of primary and principal. They say he is not allowed back to school until an updated Educational Psychologist report is forthcoming. This action strikes me as discrimination because he has been incident free since joining the school 2 years ago and they had the SENCO report from his previous school as well as his previous clinical report from his paediatrician. They have not followed procedure as we have not been called into school nor has he been in receipt of any appropriate sanctions other than shouting. In his last school he was treated in exactly the same way as other children and was so happy there. We are in the North East of England from Thursday and need to sort this out. Does anyone have any contacts where I can get an immediate assessment?
