Jo is just like so many of the parent carers that we meet in our support groups and in our online community.  Her son has several diagnosed disabilities and like so many SEND parents was juggling a million emotional and practical issues.  There was the journey of acceptance and dealing with her inner turmoil, adjusting expectations and fears for the future.  This is alongside learning and implementing new behaviour management strategie and a new style of parenting and trying to access the myriad of services, each with their different contacts, appointments, thresholds and gatekeepers.
