So here is my dilemma...sorry it's long, but I up thought a back story may help.
I have a 7yo bipolar/autistic son.
Kindy/prep - he attended approximately 3 out of 4 terms due to violence.
Year 1 - he attended 2 out of 4 terms due to violence in a mainstream classroom, was expelled then attended 1 more term in an office room 2 teacher : 1 student.
Year 2 - he attended 1 term due to violence then expelled.
All of this was at private schools.
He then attended a public school and was expelled after 2 weeks due to violence.
We sent him to another private school where he attended 1 term until he was expelled due to violence.
Term 2, we were told that he should have a break and learn a little bit at home with me, which we have done semi successfully... Yay - he can finally read a little bit!
Term 3, dept of Ed and local public school want me to homeschool indefinitely. He is welcome to go there but as soon as he shows a hint of violence he will be expelled yet again.
I can't homeschool indefinitely, I have a 3yo son at home - preschool 2 days a week, and I work part time, while my husband works full time. I also have a family of 8 and need to try to keep the house in some kind of organised chaos. Lol. Etc.
His doctor has now given us a letter to say that he is not permitted to attend mainstream schooling, but special schools won't allow him to attend because he isn't mentally delayed.
What do I do now? How do I give my son an education? If anyone could help, would be much appreciated....
Thanks in advance.. Sorry it was so long!
