at my old school there was actually a total communications unit (commonly known as a deaf unit) which was intergrated with the rest of the school, so we all learned to sign to some degree.
My old school had an autism unit integrated with it, though that happened the year I left.

I think units are better than either special schools are full integration, because it allows those with so called special needs the chance of a 'normal' school life while still getting the specialist help that they need.
It also helps educate the other children and their parents.

So it's all good.

My school built an autistic unit built when i was in year 10. I used to go across loads, but then I got more work and less time.

That is beside the point, I reckon he should be banned if he is simply going to insult everyone and generally troll.

Why not?
You clearly have no dignity or respect; UKL could do without people like you. Even if it is a joke it's not amusing to about 90% of mature people here.

Troll, that's a good way to look at him.

Nobody does until you have wearen them. Its very hard to explain but here are my reasons:

1)They sound rather unatural even the digital ones do
2)I can't help feeling that people look at you funny when you have hearing aids in, especialy at such a young age.
3) People tend to talk loud to you as if you're thick.

I find socialy I managed much better without them. I will wear them ocassionaly at university if we have lecturer who speaks quiet.
hmm, well i don't think that really applies to me..

presumably your loss was acquired rather than congenital to make an assesment about 'unnatural' sound..?

if you find people talk loudly it's probably only because (in a misguided way!) they're trying to be helpful.

considered getting 'ITE' (in the ear) ones? much less visible.

Some people, like me, cannot tell when people are joking, so posting that kind of joke on a special needs thread is rather silly.

i have special needs...
i must have all the blue m&ms removed and put in a seperate bowl in my dressing room.
other than that i do have proper mental problems... bit of a psycho really. then again all the best people are - creativity and psychosis go hand in hand. i know i have a very high IQ, a fair amount of artistic talent and can read people scarily well... theyre all things that developed as my condition did.
went to a special hospital school for a while... what a waste of space. everythings all about "trying your hardest" and "doing your best"... BULL***T, just tell me when i do stuff wrong for god's sake!!! i wish they'd just told me to stop pissing about and get on with something useful. instead you just get set pointless exercises that have nothing to do with your curriculum and just make you feel like an idiot. they just encouraged us to always aim low so we wouldnt be disappointed, and i was doing work i had done 10 years previously at school (not a joke).

It really annoys me when school says "the exam results are poor because it reflects the amount of special needs kids in the the school". How does being in a wheel chair effect sombodies mental ability? It dosn't and thats why the current special needs classification system is wrong.
True, but being in a wheelchair/having mobility difficulties even if your mental ability is completely unimpaired can still have an effect on your exam results.

For one thing, just the daily business of living usually takes you a lot longer than other people, on top of often physiotherapy, hospital/doctor visits etc, leaving less time for homework etc. It's not as easy to nip into town and go to the library to look up stuff for your coursework, etc, etc.

And this is disregarding that (as far as I know) few wheelchair users have not-being-able-to-walk as an isolated problem - for one thing being in a wheelchair full time can cause you other problems even if you didn't have any to start off with.

Similarly my friend, who uses crutches/wheelchair, now has problems with her arms causing writing difficulties because of the strain using crutches puts on her arms.

And by the way, I know we have lots of dyslexic people on here.......but.......

I get away with becuase its high frequency sounds I can;t hear to hearing the lower frequencies (less than 16,000hz) and lip reading I can manage fine. I did have the in ear ones, but I prefer the sound of over ear ones which is why I now have digital ones.
