  1. Unfortunately I will be working when sandra does her Q&A but I watched her video the other day and it shocked me how many similarities there was with my son from day he was born ! He cried constantly, never slept, couldn’t play independently, cried going to new places or people houses etc etc finally aged 13 he was diagnosed…. last yr!! Still a long way to go to promote and educate teachers …………I’m certainly TRYING! so hard to get him help and supported needed to learn his way……GCSE next yr !!! And now I try to get my 12 yr sorted! I’ve now learnt not to ask school to do something but to TELL nicely what I want! Waiting for results of dyslexic test and learning screening …….wish me luck!!
