Is Rome Racist?

I honestly don’t know how to answer this question, but during our recent trip, the signs were there. A lot of my friends have visited Italy and had a great time, a few of my friends are Italian and I have been welcomed into their homes like a long lost family member at mealtimes. I…

SEN Travel: Step Five

It’s the last blog in the SEN Travel series! We have covered travel toolkits, travel schemes, local/international travel, and of course other people. Now, the steps I’ve mentioned in my blogs don’t need to be followed in any particular order, it’s just the way I do things but what works for my family, may not…

SEN Travel: Step Four

I want you to imagine the following scenario: You followed all the steps in the SEN Travel blog series; you picked up the hidden disability lanyard from the assistance desk at the airport, you’d prepared the social story weeks in advance and had all the sensory/distraction activities and snacks packed into your rucksack. You get…

SEN Travel: Step Three

Steps 1 and 2 covered international travel; identifying airport assistance schemes and creating you travel ‘toolkit’.

Firstly, let’s get one thing straight, I’m not anti-school, I’m anti bad school. I would only send my children to a school if I truly believed that school could do…

LL Shorts: Worldschooling

I love London, I think it’s a great place to bring up children. Little Londoners was born out my desire to share all the amazing and affordable activities my hometown has to offer families. However, hitting rock bottom made me realise that something needed to change. I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to change our education…

LL Shorts: Rock Bottom

What’s it like to hit rock bottom and where do you go from there? I’ve hit it before, or so I thought but I’m really there now and there’s no way out. I knew it was coming, it was inevitable. Here I am, a single parent home educating my SEN child. The business I was…
