Best thing I ever did for my daughter!
Special needs schools get so much stigma, I was lucky because Megan had had alot of special needs learning support from the age of one, so, I could see what a positive input she was getting, she went to a special needs nursery group weekly at two and was statemented and at three and a half she started at the nursery of a special needs school. My older daughter (now 14) has mild disabilities and has always gone to mainstream school, in infant school nobody noticed her differences but, once she got to the juniors she was bullied and isolated, to the point she is now ashamed of her medical problems and everything has to be hush hush.... Megan on the other hand has NEVER felt different, she is doubly incontinent and wears nappies yet its never an issue, she has literally hundreds of friends, an active social life, learns life skills, does yoga, goes on atrip every week and swimming twice a week, has a gym membership... I could go on and on.... sending her to a special needs school was the best decision I made for her!
