Parent Support Groups

It’s a very busy time of year for all young people in Transition, their families and the schools and colleges they currently attend. 

Paul and I have been on the road for the last month going from event to event talking to parents, carers and teachers about the options for the future.  Although it requires a considerable amount of energy we do it because we empathise totally with families facing this period of change – when we were in the Transition process with Laura we found it to be one of the most daunting times of our lives – we didn’t know the options available to us, we didn’t know about funding, we didn’t know where was best for her  in the future, we only knew that what we had seen was not acceptable. .

After visiting a school or college we often get asked to return to talk to parents in their support groups or networks.  This gives us more opportunities to answer questions, have more detailed conversations or simply share our experiences, the horrors and the successes!

We hope that even if we have one conversation with one parent we can make a difference.

Do CONTACT US if you are part of a parent support group and you would like us to come along to one of your meetings.

Hopefully we will meet soon!
