From Lisa

Hi,

I hope someone can help me.  I am currently positioned in Bahrain my 9 year old son for the past two years currently goes to a great little school for children here with mild to mid learning differcaulties (95% of the children attending are Autistic).  The thing is he is not, he has mild ADHD and mid EBD along with mild dyslexia.  We were in South East Asia before here and he fitted in OK to a British mainstream school there and I know he would if we were to go back to the UK, academically he's ok although his English lets him down, because of this he has failed two tests to get him into a 'normal school' here.  With only two years to go before starting senior school my husband and I seriously considering moving me my son and other two children to Dubai (whilst he stays here) on the hope that we can find a more suitable school for him not a special needs school but mainstream one that has good learning support.  Is there anyone that could help me on this matter?
many thanks,

Lisa.
