I’m a 53 yr old mum   I have ADHD. My 13 yr old is diagnosed with ADHD and has suspected ASD plus OCD and sensory issues etc. He doesn’t have an EHCP and is in mainstream school. Just wondering if his school can meet his needs. He struggles to sleep then getting up etc etc. I’m sure many of you can relate. Looking forward to supporting and getting support.  Thank you

    Welcome to the community @linkits :) Have you spoken to his schools' SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator)? Have you applied for an EHCP and been turned down, or is that not a route you've pursued? 

    As he's 13, has he been at secondary school for a couple of years now? Or is he moving school?
