Well it is just over a week away until our visit to Bibic and I have a mixture of being really excited and apprehensive all at the same time.
I know there are a few of you who have been and just wondered if you had any more tips of bits advice to prepare me before I go.
Thanks Blossomx

Prepare to emerge shattered They're lovely- have fun!

Blossomhill Fri 18-Mar-05 21:39:46

Thanks

Yes I know it's not going to be a holiday as such Jimjams. Everyone keeps saying "oh a lovely break!" That's not what I am expecting and I can expect keeping up with the dietary is going to be hard but I am prepared to do it.
Has anyone stayed in the bungalow as we are and I wondered what it was like. Thanksx

Jimjams Fri 18-Mar-05 21:42:13

It's definitely not a break!!

I didn;t stay in the bungalow but everyone I met who did seemed to think it was fine- basic(ish) but fine. And everyone is very friendly. They even let ds1 go into an out of bounds area to look at a hoover!

Blossomhill Fri 18-Mar-05 21:43:50

LOL about the hoover Jimjams

Do you think I will get anything out of Bibic though? I still think dd's main difficulties are sensory and I am hoping they will help with the fingers in ears and sometimes eyes, that she does!

Hi.

Have been to BiBic many times as I live nearby and used to link to them when I was working. Also going to refer my son there soon for Aspergers.

I don't think I need to give you advice really as they are quite prepared for anything!!! They are really warm and friendly, so effective, and in fact what I would say is don't worry- you are so doing the right thing going there.

Good luck BH

Bloss....we will chat at some point over the weekend about things you need to take with you....the bungalow is like a 1960's holiday chalet but is very comfortable even though basic.

Make sure you take your swimmies with you.....the pool is fantastic and so relaxing after a day of assessment.

I'll email you list of things you will need to take for in the bungalow.

Good luck honey.....you will be fine. xxxxxx

Ah thanks Beetroot that's very kind of you. I am hopefully meeting Jaysmum at some stage too as she lives nearby!

mum38 Tue 22-Mar-05 16:07:12

Good luck from me too. Hope it brings you the help you are looking for. I will be really interested to hear how it went when you get back!!

Hope it goes well BH.

I took extra drinks in as they only serve water or pineapple juice.

The playground is nice. Try to get dd settled well at night as the course is very tiring. My ds fell asleep during one of the assessments.

Blossomhill Tue 22-Mar-05 21:18:40

Thanks maddiemo

Ds fell asleep ! Oh well I'll have to see how it goes.

Did they dx or did you know anyway beforehand???

We had a dx at age three, but I asked for a CARS test (test for autism} to be carried out as I felt he had improved on his original dx of [classic] autism.

We also felt that his problems were very much tied up in language and memory and wanted some ideas of how to proceed re schooling.

Blossomhill Tue 22-Mar-05 21:39:41

Beetroot - you haven't met dd have you ??? She is a little whirlwind!!!

Maddiemo - So did his dx change?? I think we are having a CARS test done and I am very nervous but need/want to know.

I am worried that they are going to observe me playing with dd. I am fine of course playing with my daughter as do it all the time but when I had to do it for the Hanen programme I froze, felt so unnatural and I didn't feel comfortable at all.
