“I wanted to send you a personal message to thank you
for the course you just ran on parenting children with SEND.

I have found it immeasurably helpful and feel
so grateful and lucky to have been able to attend it.
You are both so knowledgeable and supportive.”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for this morning’s session.
Doing this course is making so much difference to how I feel
and is giving me hope that I can find new ways to help my child(ren).”

“I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for your advice & help over the past few weeks.
The course has been a huge help. I’ve gone from feeling overwhelmed and very worried
(which is why I signed up) to feeling like I can understand it, manage it and really improve things.

“Every week I can’t wait until the next week to learn more or hear people’s experiences that
sometimes are so similar to mine.”

“It’s great FiF have lots of support post course support available
with Parent Network so we can keep in touch with the facilitators (FiF)
and ‘check in’ with them for tips and strategy reminders.

“I recognised that although putting the sleep solutions strategies
was not the right time for me or my family. I now feel
I have the confidence and have identified what I need to do.

“I have received great reassurances from the facilitators
that I can do this my way and at the right time for my family.”
