My efforts to publicise my story have paid off. Today, my story has been posted on a brilliant website – Special Needs Jungle. This is great news! However, I’m saddened to hear from so many other parents who went through a similar ordeal to me – left “battered” and “traumatised’ by the long, lonely, costly battle to ensure their child’s educational needs are met. I feel my battle isolated me from school, other parents, family, society etc. but comments from other parents have made me realise we are not alone. Just a thought … wouldn’t it be good if we parents got together to form a larger group?
