I live in Melbourne Victoria. I am looking for options for schooling for my 16 year old son,
We have literally tried everything.
He really wants to learn but just can’t get past his social anxiety.
Please help us

Hi @Lenny80, thank you so much for posting this question. I am sorry to hear about your son and his difficulties with school and social anxiety. I am wondering if you have talked to a psychologist? If so, have they been able to make any recommendations? I have found a website which mentions flexible learning options and have also Googled 'alternative schools' which reveals some results. Apologies if this is something you have already tried.
Just letting you know that I had to edit some of your location out of your post as our service is intended to be anonymous.
Please feel welcome to keep us updated

Hello @Lenny80 , sounds like you have been so supportive of your son already by trying out several services and getting him support from various professionals. That is really awesome to hear! You mentioned that your son wants to complete his schooling via distance education, is this something that specific schools offer or is it widely offered? Have you had the chance to chat with your son about why it is that he wants to study this specific way? Depending on his reasons, could there be some room to come to an alternative decision?

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
