12-year old son is deaf, undergoing an ASD assessment and refusing school - any advice?
I'm mum to a 12 year old boy who is deaf and currently undergoing an asd assessment. He has suspected pdd/pda. We are really struggling, as is his 10 year old sister. He is refusing school, yet school are blaming us for him not going in. He is verbally aggressive and gets very angry and is physical very strong. When anger and anxieties are high he pushes us about. We are struggling hugely as a family. Would love to hear from anyone with similar experiences and would value any advice on how to support his sister. We live in Hertfordshire. Thanks.
