me and my son got onto the 324 bus around 12:30pm yesterday with some teen lads (on helme lane meltham). When we was getting off the bus in huddersfield they thought it would be funny to shout boo and bang at my son who was wearing his ear defenders. I turned around and told them not to ever do that to someone wearing ear defenders but they just laughed and bogged off.
Liam has sensitivity issues (on the lines of autism). He has to wear them because alot of sounds freak him out. Loud sounds to him are like nails on a blackboard to us. When liam has his ear defenders on i don’t really think about what people think. It’s just common sense not to shout at a child wearing them just to see if they work (and he can hear you with them on) . If he was not wearing them and someone shouted boo liam’s eyes roll back and he blacks out.
sadly alot of people don’t know alot about autism or any special needs – disabilities.
i want him to feel like a normal little man not a joke.
you maybe wondering where the hell have I been and why haven’t you been blogging for months. Well little jimmy I’m about to tell you.
Homeschooling – I have been very busy trying to get Liam to year two English before it hit December (he got there).
I have also had news that it’s a big nope to special needs school thanks to his old school (education phycologist report) . long story short the school say they didn’t have time to do the EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) but in March I was told they were cutting his one + one and play.
Rent – omg since April my rent has been wrong so by the end of October I got a letter saying pay us £200 in 7days or you are gonna be kicked out. After having a long chat they have changed from weekly to 4weekly rent (payday).
Neighbour – my downstairs neighbour thinks it’s cool to bang on my walls every time we walk, talk, Liam plays in his room and watching tv. One night at 9pm Liam was in his room playing and BOOM BOOM BOOM. Liam jumps into bed in tears. I reported the guy next day and I could even hear him having a chat to his housing team (next day) because he was talking loudly (he wanted me to hear). He says he has not heard any sound from us but he loves to bang on my walls. 2nd time I have had to report downstairs for banging on my walls.
Health – Since breaking my foot in 2018 I keep falling over and having a lot of pain in my leg.
Money – bills have gone up but seem to have got everything up to date
Life – I’m fine…i think
Omg two blogs in one week omg I must be ill lol. anyway I just
wanted to let people know that I have now got Liam to year 1 English and year 2
maths. We been using a lot of IXL to help him and you can see that it is.
After a month of the old school bugging me I got Liam’s
school work sent to my house. I was shocked to see only two files saying class
2-3 and barely anything in it (lots of unused textbooks). I’m 100% liam has not
been schooled since class 1 seeing how behind he is. But this is the part what
upset me and my family…THEY PUT IN THE REPORT BOOKS and no joke some of the
stuff they were saying was clearly a lie. There was one report that Liam said
he had a dream about the 666 and this was reported in 2017 (Liam was 6)… I’m
sorry but even I didn’t know what 666 was at that age. But they won’t just reporting
liam they were doing reports on me. I’m not going to say online what was being
said but I will say this I HAVE NEVER HAD SOCIAL SERVICES AT MY HOUSE.
so happy we are out of that mess.
i feel like it’s about time i did a blog on this seeing that people are always asking me about it. I have been homeschooling my 8year old son since May 2019 and people love to ask why and what you do..
learning starts at 9:30am….August we are only doing math,english,history and reading because of it being school 6 week holiday. Back to normal september.
The main subjects we do are math and english. The school liam used to go to told me that he was unteachable so they just left liam to his own (playing lego). I have had to start from age 3+ and now he is on +5 math and english. He is also using readingeggs ,mathseeds and just started on IXL on english. We do this every monday to friday morning to 12pm.
His reading is getting better…from when we started. We go the the library two times a month.
We go on a trip out once a month.
Does art and craft with his nan.
For computer science he using edplace and reading (I’m reading) Horrible Science.
Liam was told he could not do history in school because he could not read or write (by a teacher). I have got him into the tv show Horrible Histories and also the books. Starting in september liam will be learning about egypt (for a month).
geography – he has learned about water and where it starts and ends (from the moors to the reservoir), earthquakes and next month volcanos.
every month Liam picks his own subject. last month it was Tanks
and next month its age on games/films and copyright.
STUFF I GET ASKED ABOUT ALOT…
- do you need a Degree to teach – no
- does he still see people and go outside – yes
- is homeschooling hard – yes but seeing him learning makes you proud.
- do you have to pay for everything – yes.
- can you still work and homeschool – yes.
- does he have to do his gcse – only if you want to. He can do them in collage.
- why do you homeschool- he was getting badly bullied and school was not sticking to the EHCP Education, Health and Care Plan. Main reason why >> https://keys1988.com/2019/05/25/big-update-on-liam/
I just spent maybe a hour in tears. I don’t want to tell people why but sometimes i feel like why the hell do i try my best. This year has been a hard one and i kind of want it to just end. My birthday is on the 15th and i just want it to pass (working on that day).
feel sick as a dog….
i think i need to give people a update on what is going on right now. well first i have some really good news.
i had a meeting with the homeschool and SEND officers. There happy with everything we are doing and even the homeschool officer took down the name’s of the websites i use to give to other parents. We also found out that liam is on HIGH priority on his EHCP (education health and care plan). The SEND officer was shocked that liam has not been tested for autism, ADHD and sensitivity but like i said i have been fighting for years but NHS just won’t help us. I’m still fighting to get liam into a special needs school but because the rule’s are getting harder to get into them schools there is a 100% liam will not get into one.
oh and the boy who went for my son’s face has been removed from the school.
got a free takeaway last night all because the owner likes me alot.
lol i still go it.
