Kelsie Bakes started this petition to Education Minister Tasmania and

I am one of many parents/carers who are fighting for more Educational Options for our child/ren who are being let down in Mainstream School settings, children who are being made to fit in try and cope without appropriate adjustments and supports put in place and the size of the classrooms make it even more difficult for our children. 

Not all children have the option to attend the Support School in the NW. (Has a specific criteria)

Why do we not have a School that can cater for our children who have Autism, and other special needs that would be better suited for our children. We see and hear from alot of families who are feeling that they are seeing first hand their child/children are not being given the appropriate adjustments and supports in a Mainstream School setting even with this new Education Funding Model. 

We need a School that can not only offer more supports and adjustments for students with special needs but can also have smaller classroom sizes.

We need to have more Autism specific trained staff who understand our children and who can help make our children's education less stressful and traumatic for them.

Something needs to be done and it's about time the Education Department and Education Minister start listening to the Parents and Carers in Tasmania.

We as parents/carers should NOT have to resort to Home Schooling we should have the option.

So please, family, friends, carers.

Let's get this petition signed so we can hopefully get our children what they deserve.
