Pointers of subjects that you may want to speak about are Diagnosis, Schooling incl EHCP’s, Welfare, Mental Health of children with disabilities and Special Educational Need. Other topics effects on siblings, effects on our Partners, our own wellbeing and even Mental Health. They are just s few but of course this is Our Forum so pretty much anything goes but when a subject is picked please only add a comment within the relevant subject so any of us will get to read everyone’s experience within the specific subject.
