BBC Two at 9:00pm tonight.
mmm, I saw a trailer for that this morning and I'm not convinced yet.
I will watch it. I do like Louie and it will be interesting to see his take on this.
saw his interview on bbc breakfast this morning so have bookmarked it to watch
Not sure whether or not I shall watch it.
Never saw the interview but would be interesting to see. ATM I'm absorbing as much info as I can get my hands on.
I thought it was interesting. I wished it hadn't been in the USA though.
That school was good. I liked the fact they had a high street and looked at life skills. Both DH and i reckon there must be private funding involved though.
The children they picked to follow were spectrum wide but seemed to have violent aspect to their autism which I know my YS and some of the other autistic kids we know haven't got ( but then that wouldn't have made interesting tv I suppose).
I watched and i agree brandie,that school was fab,like you i wish it would have been uk,my son even though hes only 4 is very much like that nicky was,too outspoken with no sense for anyone elses feelings,a few weeks ago we were in a shop and he was kicking off and there was this woman in the aisle with bright pink hair,and he said i hate that woman with the pink hair im gonna kick her out the shop,i was mortified i diddnt know where to put my face.
I did his his ed pych report through yesterday,i hope its enough to get him a statement so he can carry on getting one too one.
The Autistic school near me wouldn't have made the same impact, the majority of children board Monday to Friday and it's more regimented in it's approach.
I found the restraining of children in school quite disturbing, not because I don't agree with it, but because C is often restrained it brought it home to me
I wondered what you would think of it, Jacqui, especially when i saw the children being restrained. It was quite disturbing in some ways, and i felt so sorry for the parents, because you could see it wouldn't be too long before those kids would be far too big to be restrained by their mums - and then what happens?
The school was amazing. I was very surprised at the bit of restraint they showed in the school, when one boy got a little aggressive towards his teacher, and suddenly all these TAs appeared out of nowhere and held onto him. They were like ninjas.
That was the bit that really got to me BFG. I try not to imagine just how the staff react or restrain C, because even though I know it's needed he's my son and it hurts, which is stupid in many ways, esp as he sometimes needs restraining at home.
