The week’s scoop on special needs and disability stories

Today (Friday) is a day full of SEN green paper meetings for the Surrey pathfinder for me and tomorrow it’s the long-awaited Towards a Positive Future SEN conference for which there are still a few bursary places available for parents.

All that’s left is to choose what to wear – and as I’m not very good at this sort of thing, it’ll probably be the most challenging part of the whole thing. Next week I’ll be at the finals for the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards for which Special Needs Jungle is a finalist, so I expect you’ll find me searching the rails at the Posh Dress designer exchange shop in Farnham where they always seem to have the right thing that actually fits me.

Family wise we’ve had a week of CAMHS & cardiology visits for Son2. The consultant paediatrician spent the CAMHS session yawning and answering his phone, but at least the psychologist was sensitive and attentive and we had a satisfactory outcome, although the six month wait left a lot to be desired.

So, on to the week’s stories. Check out, if you haven’t seen it, the Pathological Demand Avoidance article by Deborah Rourke – it’s had hundreds of views this week and is well worth a read. Also have a look at my post about Son2’s raspberry Pi computer. The Padawan has become a Jedi…

Have a great weekend and don’t let the weather spoil it!
