George’s Story

George’s Story

My story all started when I found out that I was autistic. Life was hard for me because I did not understand what was going on. My old school was tough because people in the class were noisy, it was distracting, and I found it very hard to focus on my learning. The teachers tried to help me, but they didn’t understand me which made me stressed and things got worse. Lunchtimes and playtimes were hard, I was lonely and had no friends to sit with to eat my lunch.

I moved to a special needs school; they help with disabled children. I feel that life is getting easier for me. This is because the teachers help me with my work. They are able to help me manage my stress and my anger. When I get cross and need restraining, they explain to me what they are doing and why they are doing it. I am able to go into the padded room and I am able to calm which means I go back to the classroom in a better calmer mood. At break time and lunch time I do not like to go outside but that is fine as I can stay inside and play games with a teacher.

If anything could make me happier would be my mum, because when I get angry my mum can calm me by talking things through. My mum is my best friend we would normally sit down and chat about our day and if I was good at school.
