It has become clear to me helping families over the years that there is a strong link between School Phobia, School Refusal and Separation Anxiety and other disorders and disabilities.
I feel quite strong that this is an area open for research. Much of the research I have read discusses School Phobia and Refusal in depth but have never explored the ~link ~ towards other diagnosed or un-diagnosed conditions. These conditions include:
- Autistic Spectrum Condition
- Sensory Disorder
- Tourettes Syndrome
- Specific Learning Disabilities
- Auditory Memory Disorder
- and more
I feel strongly that this needs to be explored as Parents are continuing to be pressured over their child who to the school appears to be
and the parents accused of
- 'soft style parenting',
- 'not trying hard enough',
- 'Preventing their child from an education'.
Researching this area may help to eradicate the accusatory and blame behaviours and focus on a way forward for families.
