Hi all again, just a further update on Charlie’s future, well we had an amazing visit to New College Blind School in Worcester the other week, we as Charlie’s parents were very impressed with the place, it had everything in place for his needs and education. We came away thinking WOW! What could Charlie achieve here.
Charlie was invited for a four say assessment to see if it was right for him as it means boarding midweek and coming home for weekends it was a decision that we had to let Charlie make on his own. Well he went and really enjoyed it, they adapted all his lessons into whichever source of equipment needed and learnt some independent life skills along the way. He did some English work using Braille and some science work using tactile equipment. A huge difference from his present school, he said he felt just the same as everyone else. Although he missed us terribly and visa versa, i didn’t realise i would miss him that much, the house was so quiet without him. Anyway he’s back now and back at school for the moment. We now have a lot to think about as to what we do for the best. He’s gone now to take time out and really think about what he wants to do, we will be supportive no matter what, but the final decision is Charlie’s. We have to wait for all the reports so that gives us a Little time. Will keep you all informed of his decision soon. If anybody has any views on the College please let me know as it would be interesting to see what other people think of it. Cheers for now xx
