Dear All I am asking for advice and insight, but it is for my own family. Can I thank you in advance for any help you can offer. Background. I am a teacher working in the North of England. My oldest son has been living in Denmark for about 10 years now, my ex is Danish. He is fluent in both English and Danish. He was recognised as having Autism about 4 years ago. At that point it was clear he was having issues fitting in at school, the response of the system in Denmark is quite rigid and he was moved initially to a holding unit for 6 months then found a place in an Autistic school. The Autistic school was not really teaching him and he became distressed with the behaviour of others and the teachers approach. He was especially distressed as he had not done anything wrong and seemed to be being warehoused. He began to refuse to go to school, then he was moved to another school but here the teachers seemed to drop in and out. He was allowed to play on computers for days when no one was available for teaching, and when they were, they just seemed to do random things. From his perspective he was being babysat. I am trying to be neutral on the approach of my ex and the Danish authorities here. He has been allowed to stay in his room when in Denmark with minimal interaction with others for years. I have now through a long and expensive process won the right to bring him to the UK. Present He will be returning in August 2019 full time. He has lost all confidence in himself and is very afraid of school. I have found an online school called Inter High. My plan at the moment is to start him in year 10 and allow him to complete GCSEs over 2 years completing in 2021 at age 17. Alongside this have a gradual socialising introduction in the hope to have him attend college after that. Obviously helping him as much as possible with both. Advice Has anybody any experience of this type of situation, school or approach. I would love him to attend school but it's too much for him at the moment. I have sold my car and we have cancelled holidays to pay for online school, so thats not a problem. My wife and I are also looking at what we can do from home to support him, such as reducing our hours etc. If anybody can offer an insight I'd be really grateful.
