I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could share their child with ASD's experience after joining a grammar school. Some of my queries
- could they cope with the work at GCSE or A levels
- Did they get any help in the curriculum if any organisational or mild language difficulties
- Did they just have to cope as a normal child
- were teachers supportive or felt that a grammar school was not the right place
- How did they cope with the extra social responsibilities that come with secondary school.

I am trying to look for an appropriate school for my child 10 years old with high functioning ASD who seems to have coped academically till now and possibly has a good chance of getting into a grammar school.
Any experiences in south London and kent area would be appreciated.

It depends very much on the individual child and the individual school. Some secondary schools are wonderful for SEN, others less so. Have a look around various schools and see how they 'feel', a child with ASD needs to feel at home in a school and routines explained before hand ( as I am sure you know!). Make sure that the transition is well managed, the primary and secondary Sencos will liaise, maybe arrange visits to the next school. We have organised a board with photos of the canteen , hall , playground , form teacher etc , in the past, so that it was not unknown.
