And my mom and dad know about the bullying, and the teachers.
The teachers said that could not do anything about the bullying.
It goes without saying that this is very bad teaching (where i live, it is extremely difficult to get a teacher sacked. Even if a million ppl protested against that techer, s/he still wouldn't be fired.), but we don't want to move her to a different school cause that would cause her extra trauma and bullying would probaly start up in the other school aswell.
Also, she is not keen on taking up any extra-ciracular activities.
Oh I figured the Deaf School placement would be a bit too far away. It's too bad thou that students can't trial at Deaf Schools. Maybe when she's a bit older, like a teen. Aren't there any Deaf Units? A Deaf Unit is a Dhh day program housed at a regular school. It's a lot better then the mainstream...What about summer camps/schools or the like? And yes I hear you..........bullying is so swept under the rug
Especially when it's more like an oscratization thing rather then full on bullying.....I dunno, if the new school had a dhh program the bullying might not be as bad....b/c trust me...bullying is BAD!
