    I took my PDA child out of mainstream Primary school and placed him into special school and have never looked back! He has Autism and learning difficulties so it was definately the best place for him.
    I took my Asperger's son out of mainstream secondary school at the age of 12 and he has been much happier! He was educated at home by our LEA, got 7 GCSE's A-C and is now in college and doing well.

    I hope other parents on the forum will give you their perspective.
    It's not an easy decision to make and depends on what schools are in your area.

    Are you or he unhappy with his mainstream secondary school?
