Hi, I've been home schooling my two ASD sons. One is 5 and has more severe needs and one is 8 and he is high functioning and advanced. I was diagnosed with ASD 2 years ago but I also have thyroid problems and get days when I feel really ill. Problem is that in Chester where we are the networks for home schooling are a bit rubbish and there isn't much going on. They are also missing the social side of school. Work wise we have covered loads and we get more done in 3 hours than they do in school. My 8 year old has covered all the curriculum for this year. I am debating weather or not to send them back. My youngest however really fell behind in school and he has caught up a lot since being home schooled. He is still not up to level but I am concerned this may happen again and he will end up further and further behind. He has behavioural problems with his ASD though and he often gets over sensitised in a busy situation, so cannot concentrate. I am just looking for people's opinions on this please. What are your views? Many thanks.
