house training

They are autistic, they live with dys, psychiatric disorders or a disabling illness that prevents them from going to school … The association Your School at Home offers home lessons that adapt to the needs and pace of each of them.

14-year-old Hadrien was not happy about going to school, on the contrary … Autism also has ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder with or without hyperactivity disorder), severe dysgraphia, anxiety, sleep disorders and excessive fatigue. After the morning classes, sometimes he needed to lock himself in the dark for hours. He was literally washed away at 5 p.m. Says his mother, Ana Duran. His parents have already tried everything: AESH (accompanying a pupil with a disability), private assistance, long-distance … In vain. Hadrian falls into anorexia and begins to scarify. ” Your home school (VECV) saved it “Mom is happy. This association offers home education for sick or disabled children and adolescents from kindergarten to the last year, to avoid their exclusion. Despite the progress made since 2005, some in the school do not find ” ordinary solutions tailored to their specific needs (video versus). Equipment ” unfortunately “Unique, regret your parents.

Institutions, not the right option

Hadrian has good intellectual, logical and comprehension skills, but is difficult to express and has difficulty deciphering emotions. He is a real mushroom, he takes everything personally and does not have the ability to put things right The mother explains. He also tries to manage the noise, his movement, his environment, his body. and panic when he can’t predict what will happen “But then where do these children be educated? oversized »In IME (Medical Education Institute), Ulis (Localized Unit for Inclusive Education)? ” Institutions are not suitable for those who are not intellectually retarded, are not enriching enough and may even exacerbate behavioral problems cuts off Ana Duran. According to her, several Ulis admitted that they could not meet Hadrian’s needs because students in these classes at the university often had not yet learned to read and write. ” So we would put him in a state of failure “, The mother deduces.

Significant improvements

After four years in Your school at homeon the advice of his psychiatrist, he left ” a dumb child, unable to ask for help, a young person who enjoys communication “He also gained independence, sleeps better, eats better.” Previously, environmental management took precedence over the enjoyment of social life. Today, this solution offers him stability and perspective for the future. “He welcomes his mother.” The recipe for this success? Support and respect for the student’s rhythm to measure. Currently in his third year, Hadrien is studying all the subjects needed to obtain a patent, spread over ten hours a week. ” Despite the limited schedule, he manages to adhere to the National Education Program because there is no need to manage the group here. Says Ana. Mathematics, English, history, physical education, fine arts … In general, a primary school teacher visits her students one to three times a week in the range of 1:30 to two hours per subject, ie a maximum of 6 hours a week. class and between 12 and 2 p.m. for high school. Rhythm ” ideal for Hadrian. So when he was offered to do some high school subjects next year, the answer was clear: ” NOT ! “.” He does not feel ready and is still marked by the difficulty of being in a group of more than five people “, Details of her mother, who urges the dissemination of this facility.

Free and personalized education

The VECV currently operates four private establishments, including three under contract with the Ministry of National Education, in Ile-de-France and Normandy. Education is free, just like in a public school, all you have to do is sign up for the association with an annual fee of 100 euros. Each year, it brings together 150 to 180 students, mostly with mental disorders, but also autism, disabilities, motor or sensory disabilities, cerebral palsy (CMI) or even dys-disorders. ” Homeschooling is an interesting alternative for young people who, for physical or mental reasons, cannot travel by public transport. “Explains Marie-Suzanne Dejean de La Bâtie, principal of France Quéré High School, who confirms that the bet is the same, at least partial return in their school sector, the place of socialization. ” Some mental disorders lead to anxiety completely incompatible with the school staffadds. School phobias are sometimes accompanied by social phobias. The result: sometimes we can’t even get them out of the room to teach them. Patience and understanding are then the key. The qualities that teachers, trained in supporting young people with disabilities, have developed over the years in contact with their students.

More requests than offers

Patients – in addition to the prescription of a specialist who follows a young person – will also have to show families who are interested in the integration of this school, which has a 100% success rate in graduation. ” We have many requirements, much more than the offers availableconfirms Marie-Suzanne Dejean de La Bâtie. About fifty applications are waiting for secondary and 70 for primary. To make up for this, the new antenna has just opened its gates in Rouen, more should follow in the coming years. ” Every region would need facilities like us, but financially it is very complicated “, Assures the director. ” Many parents are eagerly awaiting the creation of a mix between the VECV and the mainstream school Ana Duran insists. As for Hadrien, who thought it was impossible to continue his education, he now dreamed that he would go on. ” He would like to become a composer, but also a musicologist and teach music theory, this is his current passion. her mother smiled.
