A blog About Raising My Autistic Son has been questioning how autistic children can access after school play activities. Meanwhile Steph’s Two Girls discusses that learning itself should also be fun.
One of the often considered ‘fun’ things at school, and a topic for a few SEND Bloggers this month, is Sports Day. Roo on Rainbow Dust has his first sports day and Autism Mumma turns up despite the rain. Our Little Escapades wonders if Sports Day is too much while Faith Mummy’s daughter has a special sporting achievement. First Time Valley Mum describes how there’s actually a lot more to sports day than just ‘fun’.
From play, sports and some running in races to run-ins of a different kind. SEND Bloggers have also been discussing some serious topics. Down’s Side Up is looking at what the MET are covering on the BBC. The Inclusive Home discusses her disappointments about the latest British Standard document which addresses accessibility.
Ordinary Hopes considers Human Rights and Inhuman Wrongs and Someone’s Mum says she won’t allow the system to break her son. Caring in Chaos thinks it’s strange there is not more investment being placed on supporting and understanding mental health for those with additional needs.
Stress and anxiety can be particularly high during times of change. Many SEND Bloggers are facing the end of the school year. A Diary of an Imperfect Mum highlights why autistic children hate this time and Mummy Times Two shares her tips on making the transition easier. At least we know Elin on Mum Making Lemonade is happy at school.
I’m hoping things go well for everyone, and hope to see you all back here in August for our next SEND Round-up. Please either drop a link below or contact me with your posts for inclusion.
