    Hello @s0phxx_. Welcome to Scope’s forum. It is great to see you have joined us. How are you today?

    I can hear your son has autism, adhd and a number of other needs and you are here to find support and advice and give back when you can to others.

    I am just wondering if you would like to tell us more about the support and advice you are looking for in particular? This would just help us to provide you with more effective support and advice which is what you deserve.

    In terms of wanting to give back when you can to others, I would just like to say thank you. It is people like you who make our community the supportive and friendly space it is. Please remember we are here for you too though if you need anything!  <3

    That's frustrating @s0phxx_. It sounds difficult that you are experiencing that at the moment.

    I particularly agree with @Alicewillow about considering what support you think would be most beneficial for your son. 

    Though, often if your son's school isn't being cooperative, the local authority is your best first point of call. 

    Additionally, does your son already have an EHCP or is this something you think he needs but doesn't yet have access to?

    I am glad you have spoken to a lady from Scope before on the phone who was nice and helpful. If we can also be helpful, please don't hesitate to let us know. We are all here for you  :)
