November Meet-up

What a great meet-up we had today with five new families attending.

The children enjoyed playing on the Wii, singing along to Frozen, playing various instruments (the drums are always popular!) and creating some fab designs using Hama beads. It was lovely to see the newbies welcomed by the regulars.

It was great to meet new parents too and discuss where they’re at on their journeys. A common theme seemed to be that professionals involved were reluctant to ‘label’ the children – which those living with ASC will know is so frustrating as, to quote the NAS, “it’s not a label it’s a signpost” – a signpost to getting the children the support they need, including from parents. How can a parent explain to their child why they are different and help them to understand their issues without that ‘diagnosis’!  would they choose not to label somebody who has diabetes?
