Louis’s Story

Louis started at Sheiling School in June 2016. His journey has been a difficult one. By the time he was 8 Louis had already been in two primary schools, one mainstream and one specialist. He had ended up very isolated in a specialist school with two Teaching Assistants escorting him everywhere. He was unable to access the classroom, activities or specialist holiday clubs as his behaviour had become very challenging within a year. Louis had been a very bright and happy little boy, so the decline was very hard to see and we felt we needed help.

Since being at Sheiling School Louis is like a different child. He at last has a smile on his face! The environment is unique and perfect for Louis. He is learning and his speech has made great progress. He still has a long way to go on his journey, but the support and respect that Sheiling School have shown Louis is amazing.
