One of the things which I might not have made sufficiently clear over the last few days is that the recent posts about Cheryl Moy and Alison Sauer have been made in response to appeals from home educating parents themselves! I have been contacted by a quite a few people who are worried about the situation; particularly that Cheryl's home educating facebook group is the first hit that comes up on searches and that as a result, many new parents end up finding it as the first port of call. I might also mention that today's post was the direct result of parents with children on the autistic spectrum asking me to look at some of the things that have been said.
Some of the mothers who have felt dissatisfied with the way that Cheryl is behaving have now set up a new group and they ask me to publicise it; which I am happy to do. It is a facebook group called UK Hed Home Education and may be found at:
It is hoped that this will provide a rather more welcoming environment for people.
