For many parents we go through the process of diagnosis because we think it will open gateways of support for children.
However, years in the system we learn that there are many more local authorities spending their time twisting and dodging their duties than actually providing adequate support.
Often relying on us as parents not knowing the laws or pathways and with our belief that they are there to help us.
Unfortunately like many, I learnt the hard way.
I guess they think that if they offer something to one family we’ll all be asking for everything.. but most of the time we are too upset, exhausted or bored.
And anyway if this was some amazing free meal ticket that all parents are trying wangle then it would the worst meal ever.(like a Rustlers burger or a tinned meat pie)
