    My DH said he'd get onto the education board or headmaster with a child being made to spend a day in a tent. I agree it's not great but I think it would be a last resort for me. He reiterated it's like the child being treated like a zoo animal.

    I'm not sure but it is a bit sad and I've been thinking of you and your DS. Hope it got sorted.
    Tents can be a great resource for a over simulated child if used in conjunction with other tools. It certainly shouldn't be the only place he feels safe. I hope you got some results today.

    It does sound nice, a colourful happy type of tent one of those play type cubby house ones sounds fab with maybe some cushions and books inside sounds awesome but I guess it could be daunting. My 2 DD's have a my little pony tent, pretty and colourful with windows and shaped as a castle but still my DS is very weary of it.

    I'm sorry I didn't get back to this thread. I got caught up in the first week of school and life got in the way.

    The tent is gone. They were trying to do the right thing by providing him with a sensory haven but could see that it wasn't really the way to go.

    Had a chat with head of Special Ed and we have worked out a six week programme whereby he's working towards full day attendance (eg. one week 3 hours, second week 4 hours etc) and at the end of this we'll reassess and if he's not integrating or otherwise doing well, I'll be pulling him out and homeschooling him/keeping him back a year.

    Part of the day (about an hour) is spent with a special ed teacher. It's all they have the funds for. I'm lucky they have that. This is the reality of disabilities in main****** education. On a positive note, he wants to go to school and is settling in.

    Thanks so much for the support here. I really appreciate it.
