This decision was not easy or taken lightly. Nor was the one to make it public. But I feel it is the right one for this parent of a HAPPILY multiply #neurodivergent child.
Autism? ADHD? Dyslexia? To diagnose or not to diagnose? The answer may seem obvious. But is it?
What does mental health...autism...and home education have in common? What could possibly be the link between these three seemingly disparate things? Well for PanKwake and #HomeCrazzyHome they are inseparable.
Now any of my friends who have seen the Gaming/Art room at #HomeCrazzyHome know how passionate we are about providing PanKwake with resources for home education. But what my Swansea friends may not realize is that even before Cookie Monster came into our lives and swooped us away on the train to become Cinderellas in his life...I provided all those same things to PanKwake.
The other piece of the puzzle falling into place (I hope). A plea to other parents of neurodivergent children...this ain't our movement.
My impassioned plea from the parent of a #neurodivergent child to the #NeuroDiversity Movement. Please...let us in. We are not your enemy.
Where Do I Go From Here....Well, it is officially over...#100DaysOfHomeEd. And while I have not finished all 100 days, I will be doing so in the days ahead. Sort of like that marathon runner who crosses the finish line long after the crowds have gone home. That is me! Oh, but what a time the past 100 days...three months have been. Just as we were moving into #HomeCrazzyHome and right in the middle of noisy electricians and dust that rivalled a small volcanic eruption...along came this opportunity.
