Life at school for disabled young people

There are many obstacles that a young disabled student can face during their time at school.

Today, I am going to talk about my experience.

I remember how lucky I was with my Primary and Secondary schools.

They both were mainstream and they were excellent at identifying possible obstacles for me and of course, sorting them out.

I have always wanted to do everything that my schoolmates were doing. I wanted to go to every school journey, outing, taking my SATS and GCSEs exactly like them. Because… Why shouldn’t I be able to do it?

If your child has an accommodating school, there should not be any other obstacle apart from arranging a couple of meetings now and then to work on the logistics together.

In that sense, I have always had a fantastic support from both my Primary and Secondary schools, which enabled me to have a normal life as much as possible and do my GCSEs and A-levels exactly like everybody else. From the head teacher to my peers, everyone has been always amazing to me and I have never felt left out.

If a school is willing to help and you and your child are enthusiastic and patient, life at school will be a wonderful experience for all.
