I was wondering if anyone in the UK has had experience of the introduction of "Independent Travel training" for SEN students.
At the present time escorted taxi services to school are provided for autistic and other disabled children in our area.
I understand that transport officers at our county council are considering recommending withdrawal of these services for some children and instead to provide "Independent Travel Training".
The benefits they claim for this are: to improve the ability of students to access services and to reduce the funding requirement for local authorities.
I was wondering if anyone else in the UK has had any experience of this?
It concerns me as my little boy would be in danger if he had to make his own way to his autistic unit.
Thank you for your support.
