Learner diagnosed with ADHD and Aspergers finally placed after 18 months
The Western Cape Education Department says it's managed to place a child who has been out of school for the past 18 months.
Veronique Hughes son Kasey is diagnosed with Aspergers and ADHD, and has been searching for a school that can support his needs.
The department acknowledged it's facing challenges of budget constraints and a shortage of space for children with special needs, but confirmed Kasey has been placed and will be starting school from next term.
I don't know where the ball was dropped, I don't know whether the mother refused the recommended school but we have managed to place the learner. He will be starting school from the beginning of the third term.Jessica Shelver, Spokesperson for MEC Debbie Schäfer
