A teenage boy with autism who was only permitted to attend class for 45 minutes a day due to aggression issues was refusing to return to school because of an incident when police were called. His mother suggested the school board assist with providing home schooling, but the board insisted the boy stay in school. Things were at a standstill when she contacted our Office. We helped the board work with her to develop a special home schooling plan. The teen is now receiving five hours of home schooling a day with an educational assistant, and the school continues to mark his work and write his report cards.
