Is this you?

You suspect your child may have Autism, but who do you speak to about this? Or CAMHS has you on the waiting list. But your child’s behaviour is exhausting you, and you have no clue about what to do next. Maybe school are being less than helpful about the EHCP that you think your child needs. Or you don’t even know what an ECHP is.

Maybe you’re thinking about adopting but don’t know what the next step would be. Or you’ve started the adoption process but would like to speak to someone in the know, but outside the process.

Does your child have a neurodiverse condition, or is there something else going on. Autism looks very much like acting out. Daydreaming could be ADHD. Acting out could be autism or ADHD a response to bullying, or struggling due to educational delay.

You might have a big list of questions but don’t know who to reach out to to get questions? Or you might you know that something is “wrong” with your child. You want to help, but you have no idea where to even start!

How do I know this?

Because 14 years ago, our first adopted child came home to us. Followed a year later by her brother. We learned very quickly that parenting isn’t like is says in the books if your child has additional needs. 14 years and diagnoses later* and I now work with other parents on this journey. I am the resource I wish I’d had 14 years ago.

How can I can help?

I can help you complete the forms you might need for an EHCP or tribunal, using the right language. I can help you explore whether FASD is as frightening as the social workers make it out to be. The short answer both yes and no….but I can help you work through the longer answer. What the hell is an EHCP and do we need one? And a million other answers. We can help you prevent meltdowns whilst you wait for a CAMHS appointment. We show you how a child with FASD can have ADHD and yet pass every ADHD test with flying colours.

I can help you to be the parent you want to be. And already are. I’ll show you how parenting a child with any of the above disorders, or their co-morbidities, is a little bit more complex than reward charts. And also infinetley rewarding. But you need other strategies than taking away the remotes for the xbox. But….I promise you it can get easier, and we can show you how. I can show you what to do next.

So…click the link here, tell me a little bit about yourself. I’ll set up we’ll a chat to see what we can do. Or follow us on socials, at the top of the page and get to know us first. I’ll be posting more over the next few weeks to with some tips and tricks. I’ll also be sharing my thoughts of whats going on on the SEN world.

If you have a specific question, comment below, and I’ll do my best to answer it.
