Re: All About Autism

Re: All About Autism

...this shows that your son is able to read and write Mandarin well, is not that your boy cannot even read nor write any Chinese character at all, hence the educational professionals conclude that since he actually didn't show a learning disability in P2 Chinese, thus did not clear him for exemptio...

Re: All About Autism

DesertWind Your boy is in mainstream right? My boy is similar, he can read with Hanyu Pin yin, writes nice chinese character, could score in his Ting Xie. If not for him missing the entire page 2 of his Chinese exam paper, he could have squeezed into Band 1. But I know his compo and oral will be a ...

Re: All About Autism

Hi Desertwind, When the child development doctor saw my son, she wrote an exemption letter for him straight away. It's a good thing someone thinks your son can make it, no? :rotflmao: On the other fronts, my son is well settled into Pathlight foundation year. No pressure, no stress. He is happy. I ...

Re: All About Autism

Try the exemption application again next year? I've heard of a lot of rejections from MOE recently. I must be so blessed to get exemption quickly.

Re: All About Autism

Re: All About Autism

Hi Tyeogh, Double-E and all mummies and daddies here! How are you? I just went back to read up Tyeogh's posting in July and saw that his boy was offered a Foundation level year in Pathlight.

All About Autism

Talking about caning. Seriously, there is a cut-off time for it. By 8 or 9 years old cannot liao! In fact, I will cut off at 7 yo, or once the kid start primary school.
