Hi all, wondering if you have any suggestions, experiences to share... so my boy is 7 next week and has asd( also in process of adhd dx) and each time I start his school work with him he has violent protesting meltdowns. I had this each day from March to July last year and am dreading these next few weeks being the same. We follow a time table, so he knows what to expect. He has two siblings age 5 and 4 that I am also doing work with. How have your children found doing the work at home? Should I do it all even if it’s causing so much distress? I just don’t want him to fall behind further... any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi @stom711014 and welcome to our community.  Thank you for joining us!

    I'm not a mum or care-giver so can't offer wisdom from personal experience, but blimey that sounds challenging.  I know my friends who have non-disabled children are struggling to get them to cooperate and engage with work, so with ASD added into the mix, it must be very tough.   

    One of our members @KimLawtherAT posted this thread yesterday which contains a link to her website that has resources to help with home-schooling children with special educational needs.  This might give you some tips and different ideas if you give it a look.

    While, you may also benefit from signing up to Scope's Navigate service which is a free online programme where you are teamed up with a trained advisor who offers advice on how to manage additional needs and cope.

    I'm sure our other community members who have children will offer support in the meantime, but if you need to vent then we are here so please lean on us :)

    Welcome to the community @stom711014 :) I can only imagine that must be very challenging indeed. Please do let us know how you get on with getting in touch with navigate and looking at the resource Cher sent. Scope also has an information and advice page on homeschooling, which I think has some great resources too.
