My son is in his last year if school ( year 14 ) and we have been looking at educational provisions post school.
We have found 2 possible placements.
One is local and one is residential.
Both are able to support my sons need but in different ways.
I feel that the social worker is pushing me to choose the residential. The education side of it is similar to his school environment which is good but I have concerns about the residential part. Prior to covid and during covid my son was going to respite 3 nights fortnightly but was not coping there. Some days he would refuse to go and when he did go he would not leave his room.
The social worker has been talking about best interest meeting and a capability assesment. I am worried my decision will be overruled 😏
