ASD & SEND Roundup #30

weekly round up of autism and special needs blog posts & articles

This week I have been taking some much-needed respite and a little time out with my Mum, without the kids.

As holidays approach, the need for SEND family breaks and respite has been on my mind a lot lately.

For anyone looking for respite or SEND family breaks, here are some of the services that I am aware of (please do let me know if you know of any that may of interest to other parents)

Lemon and Lime Adventures also has some great ideas for surviving holidays with busy and messy kids. If all fails, you can follow the instructions from the Lego movie, which my Eldest insisted on us following for about 2 months - well past the limits of what my happiness could take.
