“It’s nice to come to a group that you feel you can relax with your child and their siblings because they are totally accepted and their challenges are warmly welcomed. The fact that you can have a drink, delicious snacks, share fun with other families plus help your children, do activities, crafts, play with great toys, plus do yoga, signing and also have access to excellent speech therapists is priceless. Finally, having the opportunity to attend training events is invaluable. Supports us in life and has been totally amazing!”
