If my DS does Naplan he is likely to not actually participate in it and probably score zero, which in turn will bring the school's overall mark down. So I guess it is quite possible they don't want him participating for this very reason. Which makes me think I should just let him do it..lol.

If it's done to address an anxiety issue, i think that is fine but that right should also extend to the neurotypical kids that are feeling that way.

My son has ASD was diagnosed at 3 yrs old he is now 6 yrs old in a special needs support class at school and loving it we receive weekly OT and fortnightly speech and have received physio on the past.
My son also has Global developmental delay so still quite delayed in speech and learning comprehension at school so working on that at the moment also delayed in toilet training and mentally somethings he does can tell he is behind.
My son has calmed down a lot since starting school (wonderful small school very understanding no meltdowns after) and starting to let his personality shine though very cheeky but happy.
We are with ndis and has been wonderful have gotten therapy and resources from them and they are so understanding have had no problems.

Welcome @Mum to a miracle
Nice to hear your DS is thriving in the support class
My DS starts school next year and we've decided to apply for a support class placement also. Whilst I feel he's continuing to make so much progress, I can't risk putting him straight into a main****** class as I fear his support needs may not be met.

Yes very proud of my son he had a grandparents day concert today and got up and sang and danced (with music and his class) and had fun.
We were the same when we had to enroll my son in school we approached our local main****** primary school but they couldn't offer him any support whatsoever so we went out of area and found a wonderful school with the multi-cat support class this yr my son only has 5 students in the class and 2 teachers (one teacher and one aide) but they get to do everything the school does (it's a main****** school with the support classes in it) they do assemblies together have excursions do sports carnivals sports days etc very interactive and supportive and the older main******/support class kids are great towards the younger ones no bullying they help and play together we are a very small (under 150 students) community school so everyone gets involved.

I haven't written in a bit..
I went at looked at a special school today for Davin next year, it is the mild special needs school. I had Davin with me, and as we went through I got frustrated with the fact that he just wouldn't be still.. but it highlighted that the school we saw today is probably not the right one for him.
I will be looking at his special developmental school next term.
I know I should just go with the flow, but I am just having problem processing things lately.

Ugh. My eldest was invited to a birthday part at Tunzafun which was meant to be on the weekend just past, but the birthday boy got sick and so the party was rescheduled for after school today.
Sadly I had to pull out because I couldn't find anyone to watch my younger son. I broke the news to the mum today and she asked me why I didn't bring the youngest along? I felt like it was a weak excuse, but the truth is bring my youngest in Tunzafun is not what I would call fun. It's not really an indoor playground or even appropriate for his age. And he does not understand danger. It is also extremely noisy in there and overwhelming amount of kids, he wouldn't be able to handle it.... I also have to watch my eldest too...
So yeah..I feel like a bad mum because I ruined another opportunity for him.
I ended up also bringing the birthday boys present to school pick up today so my son could give it to him.
*sigh* Such a lonely life sometimes.

It's tough to have to miss out on stuff like this, but we know our own children so well - part of this is knowing when an outing is likely to become a nightmare. It simply isn't worth the anguish sometimes
I hope your little guy gets another party invite soon.
