    Thanks for the support guys, i keep trying to not think about it, but then i do and it flares up and i feel devastated, he needs the help, he regresses. Stuff we do in speech and OT, if we dont constantly revise, 6 months tops, and its gone. He might be sitting on the cusp of the low end of normal as far as grades go, but thats because of the continous therapies and help, he needs things reworded 2-3 sometimes 4 times before he understands. A teacher simply wont and cant do this for him with every instruction!

    Now a boy woth classic autism, mixed expressive receptive langiage disorder and sensory processing disorder is going to be treated like a regualr neurotypical child.

    It blows my mind. Wtf is the government thinking?

    Grump, as soon as the school is fully aware of their funding cuts and which kids they feel need it more, the other would definitely be notified. I guess its just a matter of who and when.

    start lobbying your local member now, get on to your local/state disability advocacy groups. I know that you should not have to do this but lobbying can and does work.

    Louellyn - i was told some parents were doing that as well, so immgoing to join them.

    Tbh i really am terrified, i nearly had a nervous breakdown that first year, i thought our next big terrifying hurdle would be high school (i cant even think of that without feeling like i want to vomit) but now im getting the same physical feelings/effects about this.

    Apparently year three is a big leap/change from year two, where they really take it all up a notch. Gah.

    It is horrible the latest budget, a true case of disadvantaging those already disadvantage.

    However, I am currently studying to be an aide and our teacher actually told us today the new budget will work in favour for us as we will be a lot cheaper for schools to hire over extra teaching staff. I'm not sure how it works exactly but according to him it means more work for aides so perhaps this will work in your favour some how too, I surely hope so. I'm sorry it's late and I don't remember the specifics of how

    I was however gobsmacked to discover Perth is now the only state in Australia to offer Auslan as a language after all other tafe funding has been cut, meaning deaf people will be further outcast through lack of people being able to learn this language vital for their communication.

    Thanks singlemumma, theres a lot of conflicting info atm, my boys OT told me it will mean there will be more funding to hire actual teachers who specialise in disabilities. BUT she also said, that it is a long way off and it wont help me, but will be good for the bigger picture eventually. But with what ive been told, what u have been told, i do wonder if the governmeny are just spinning flase hope around to cover their butts when it comes to voting time..

    And... I guess i can be happy about the change i was told abput since in a few years time my other son with special needs will be starting school, but for this moment for right now, my ds#1 is going to suffer grately, and its crushing me, its hard to see beyond that.
