My son has just turned 7 and has been ‘schooled’ in a behaviour support unit now since May and it’s now October. We are in the process of finalising his statement and we were initially told that his needs could be met in mainstream school. We appealed and when the panel met again they agreed that his needs could best be met in a special school.
He does still have a time in the morning when he seems to be particularly anxious and will throw things around at the centre. He also often says that he doesn’t sleep because of nightmares where spiders are chasing him.
It’s been such a difficult time and we wondered whether anyone had any tips or proven methods to relieve anxiety in their children?
