Alex has multiple and complex impairments and attends a school that meets his needs well, with a sensory garden, a hydrotherapy pool, and innovative classroom spaces. Now, the school is earmarked for closure because of budget cuts. His mother says, “This is the only place we want our children to be, and the only place we feel we can leave our children and know they will be safe. It’s hard not to take it personally. You think, what has Alex done to deserve all this? It’s not just this. They’re cutting the local play scheme – the only place we can get any respite during the holidays.”
