Mother wins school battle for autistic son

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
The parents of a child with autism have won the right to send him to the school of their choice, at an extra cost to the local authority of £130,000 a year.

Edinburgh City Council wanted the 10-year-old boy, who cannot be named, to stay at a school in the capital.

But his mother has won a 15-month battle to send him to Rudolph Steiner's Camphill school in Aberdeen.

The Court of Session backed a previous finding that the extra costs were not unreasonable because of his needs.

Camphill charges up to £156,360 a year, compared with an estimated £19,759 a year for Redhall School in Edinburgh.

However, his mother insisted that Camphill would give her son a better chance in life.
