Signed up for this- my mum and I are going to do it together. What's it like?

It's a great intro to autism- may be more use for your mum than you as I suspect you'll know a lot already. Made a friens or 2 through it though.

We were meant to do this but couldn't because there were no childcare/creche facilities during the group sessions. It looked good though and the CDC staff recommended it too.

Thanks for replying! Yeah, CT, think it's really unfortunate that they don't offer childcare. In the literature it says, 'leave your child at home'. What, alone?!!!

We did it. You will know a lot of it already but the course is great for meeting local people in same position. We found it really good for swapping info on provision in our area.

I still keep in touch with about half the people on my EB. We all had children going into specialist education and it felt like a huge step into the unknown at the time. It is lovely to see how the children have grown.

Your mum should get a lot from it. We had Nan's on our Eb and it really helped them and gave them a chance to chat about their thoughts and feelings etc.

By the way we had a creche at the CDC but they could only offer 2 EB courses a year so only 12 families per year get a place.

Wish they'd had it in our day . Great idea to get grandparents on it, they should put that in the plan.
