I am currently writing up the results of a survey into home education and special needs. Many parents say this is not true “elective” home education.
I felt forced into HE as a last resort to save my child’s sanity
My survey on home education and special needs closes midnight October 31st 2015. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SENandhomeed2015
There have been 162 responses so far. Over two thirds of parents cite the child’s unhappiness at school as a reason for home education, half say that anxiety prevented the child from attending school, and over a third said their child was not making progress at school or was being bullied.
