Mainstream or Special school?
Help! We are trying to decide where to send our 3yr old son to school next year. We are so torn as to what will suit him best. He suffered brain damage at birth and has global developmental delay, possible visua impairment and does not speak or really do much signing. We don't want to deprive him of access to his mainstream peer group and believe strongly in inclusion but are questioning whether inclusion in his case would be exclusion and whether he needs more specialist input and training than the local infant school can offer. Any advice and tips most appreciated!
