Hi, We are looking to move to Oz from the UK next year, but have no real idea of schools. We were wondering if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations. We are ideally looking at a secondary school with smaller classes, good pastoral care and a strong awareness of special educational needs. Both our kids have dyspraxia and slow processing, one has mild dyslexia, the other dyscalculia. They score very highly on cognitive tests, though. The state we end up in largely depends on which job I get, but probably one of Qld/SA/ACT. Visas are no problem, since the kids are Australian citizens through me (their Mum). Any suggestions/recommendations would be gratefully received! Thanks, Clare
HoneyandTimmy posted a topic in Visa ChatHi there, I'm quite new on here but have been reading and learning a lot on here over the last couple of weeks. I was up until 3am this morning reading about the discrimination some poor people on here have suffered due to having disabilities. We are at the stage where we are about to submit for a 176 SS visa but have just realised that my son's medical condition could mean that he fails the medical. He has been diagnosed as having a significant expressive language and speech disorder or phonological disorder. His speech therapist mentioned that he has an aspect of Dyspraxia but I just called the hospital and they said that they wouldn't give him that label, it's not in any reports (as far as I know) so there's no need to put that on any forms. He is 4 years old, very bright and has no other problems except for his speech, which is improving all the time due to Speech Therapy and all the work we do with him at home. I have to say that I am really gutted at the thought that this dream could be all over for us and am not really sure what to next. Do we get a medical done for him now to find out if he will pass before wasting time, money etc on the visa (have already spent on agent and Vetassess fees) or do we just give up?? We were going to try and get a job offer then go this year on a 457 visa, but what's the point if we will have to come back after 4 years? I'd be really grateful of any advice.
Hi there I was wondering if anyone can clarify if you can pass the medicals if you have dyspraxia ? I have been reading some post's and im starting to panic that this might be a problem.I have not applied for my visa yet but have been researching our options and hope to apply in the next 12 months. The only problem my son has poor handwriting skills and im not even sure if the school def class it as dyspraxia . He is 13 and uses an alpha smart in some classes with extended writing although he is very bright and has no other learning issues ? He does also have asthma and allergies but is generally well. I do think that I will be using go matilda when the times comes to apply . Im just starting the ground work and there seems like a catch everytime you think you sussed which visa ect . Im sure fellow members will know exactly what I mean . Anyway I would be grateful for any advice that anyone can offer:biggrin:
