I currently work with a boy with autism who was home schooled up until this January.
He is also 8 and has now just started at school.
We are working on the basics of phonics and maths and he is making good progress. Each child is completely different autism or no autism.
Have you spoken to any local special schools they should be able to give advice to you even if you decide to keep him at home.
The fact that you’re on here means you are an active mum who wants the best and for that you’re amazing!
Keep up the good work. My background is in psychology and I am happy to help where possible!
