My son is borderline autistic and after recently having a meeting with his school i found out that all he had done that term is write the days date in his book and no homework has been completed throughout the whole year! They informed me that this wasn’t of concern for them since he’s bright enough not to fall behind and he does participate in the class when he feels like it but doesn’t choose to write any work down! I find their attitude disgraceful, he’s leaving next year for secondary school and will be in for a rude awakening when he faces endless detentions. He is fully capable of doing what i tell him to and is taking full advantage of their lack of discipline towards him, he even walks out of the class at the end of the school day without permission and i have never received any phone calls or been called into the school regarding any of this. Just because he has a disability it doesn’t mean my son should be left to his own devices, none of my other children would get away with this behaviour!
