  • Information session: Managing stress (evening)

    • Everyone has stress in their lives – but parents of children with additional needs often have a completely different list of stressors from everyone else. You may be fighting with services to get the right support for your child, or worrying about their transition to a new school. You are probably juggling lots competing demands on your time, like work, appointments, siblings and elderly parents.

      This session is an opportunity to take some time out and explore how to look after yourself. You are your family’s “glue” and if stress overcomes you, then they will struggle.

      This session will be repeated on 24 March 2020.

  • Information session: Supporting siblings (evening)

    • Do you worry about the siblings of your disabled child? You might be wondering if you are you giving them enough time, how you can support them, or how to explain their brother’s or sister’s needs to them. Perhaps you feel guilty for letting them “get on with it” as they seem to cope?

      Giving attention to a sibling may seem like another task in a busy family, but it helps to improve family life for everyone.

      Come along to this session if you’d like to learn more about siblings’ needs and how to support them. You’ll meet other parents with similar concerns and together find ways forward to improve siblings’ lives. This session will be repeated on 17 March 2020.
