I came across this new charity organisation as they contacted us at the Derby Branch of the National Autistic Society to pass on their details. They have an event coming up next week so I thought I would share their details in case it was of interest to you.
Sunshine Support are seeking to provide parental support and advice regarding Additional Education Needs for children and young people. They can access help from a group of professionals allowing you to get the help you need for your child or young person.
This has come at a great time for me as I am wanting to seek advice regarding certain legal topics for when my son turns eighteen this year. It is quite funny how the world works sometimes. I can be doing my overthinking thing around 3am in the morning and this was one subject I was tending to worry about. Someone will then pop up with a recommendation or a bit of advice and make everything a little easier. I can now see a bit of light at the end of a tunnel and hopefully now be able to go back to sleep at 3am again. There can be so many tunnels though eh?
There is an event taking place on Wednesday 21st March in Derby regarding law and education. Nathan Davies who is an education solicitor from HCB Solicitors will be speaking about EHCP's and how you can get help for your child within the education system. I am going along to one of these sessions to gather some information for our support groups and also to hopefully pick Nathan's brains regarding the legalities of disability and adult hood. There are two sessions on this day and I will pop the links to these and the Facebook page for Sunshine Support in case you would like to get in touch.
I love to share this information because we all come across times where we need a little more support sometimes or need answers as a lot of issues regarding disabilities and many topics regarding Autism can become a bit confusing to say the least. I always think, well if I want to know something then there must be more people around that may need to know too.
So if you would like more information about Sunshine Support and their events you will find all the information on their Facebook page at:
The afternoon event details are here at:
and the evening details for this event are here:
The venue is near to Derby Railway Station so it is easy to travel there but I will review this event next Saturday on Autism Support Saturday so watch this space. I do know they plan to do more sessions and events through this year so if you can't make this one there will be other opportunities.
I hope this helps. I appreciate your time reading this post today. please pop back every day if you feel like it as I chat about a different subject every day. Tomorrow is Pass the Remote, my TV feature so join me for that.....for now though......
Every Saturday will be about Autism, family and life.
