Our SN area is not a substitute for expert advice. While many Mumsnetters have a specialist knowledge of special needs, if they post here they are posting as members, not experts. There are, however, lots of organisations that can help - some suggestions are listed here. If you've come across an organisation that you've found helpful, please tell us.

Now I know this has been tried for many years previously, should we try again to group MN to area and try for regional meet ups?

We ended up with lists, such as North East, North West, Midlands, Scotland etc etc

then you added your NN to the area, then C&P the list in your profile, iyswim.

Once we had a list, we then had someone take the lead.

No worries if it's not what people want.

To start, here's mine:

So was there anyone in the Midlands? This sounds like a good idea to me.

ok as everyone knows there is always one! So today I am going to be that one! grin Can you tell me what this is for? I am a bit of an eejit and I need it spelling out for me. blush

Hi triplePsoup this follows on from us MNSNers in the West and South West having had a fabulous meet up yesterday, our third so far and growing in numbers every time. devientenigma is trying to organise those of us who use the special needs board into regions so more MNers can benefit from real life meet ups, because for many of us being a parent to a child or children with SNs is very isolating.
