Loneliness In mainstream school

lizzyscope Member Posts: 2 Listener
my sons 15 and in a mainstream school. He’s the only wheelchair user and finds breaktimes really lonely. He doesn’t want to watch his peers play football and spends his breaks on a computer instead. He’s been asking to be home schooled as he doesn’t think he’d be more lonely if he were. He also gets comments daily from kids - lots of ‘dont Run me over’ comments that really annoy him. Does anyone have ideas for what activities or approaches we could try to make school less isolated?
