Monday 12th March 2018 – Sensory issues

“Through their tried and trusted techniques I have a new toolbox of tricks (as I like to call it) to get us through the good days and those now what do I call them, ah yes, the challenging days. I was able to meet people – yes, there really are others ‘out there’ – and when I had the courage to speak, they got me. Without looks or judgements, or long winded explanations, they just got me and it felt empowering and that’s not left me, and what’s more I don’t want it to. Thank you, truly.” Feedback Parent July 2016
