    Nevermind the perceptions of the layman re. the socio-economic status of the families of SEND students …. The MoE and MSD both know the truth of the matter. Schools refuse access to neurodiverse students, and with no recourse to the authorities, parents MUST beg, borrow or band-their-bellies to send their children to school because it is ILLEGAL and unethical and immoral to do otherwise.

    These parents have priorities and imperatives that CANNOT be ignored – food, housing, health. All of which need a whole-of-society approach to deal with this, from the government, business sector, civil society. I am still not seeing a cohesive approach. There’s an ingrained ableism that prevents change.
