Christmas is coming

There's no hiding now it's December tomorrow, the trees are already popping up in windows on our road, the shops look like the elves have gone to town and the "good food" is in the shops.

 For some though Christmas can be really stressful. Logan's teacher noted in his recent parents evening that he was showing his first signs (since settling in to main-stream reception) of discomfort with all the routine changes that Christmas brings. Rehearsals for school performances when you should be doing phonics can cause real confusion, especially for a child.

12 Days of SEN Christmas

Just a bit of nearly Christmas fun!
The 12 Days of a SEN Christmas

Controversial or Cute

Controversial or Cute?
The clothing arm of Square Peg Foundation has now been running for well over 3 years and has in the main has been received  very well. Every event we have attended (which in the early days were many) we would watch as people read our design slogans and smile as they "got it."
There have however been people along the way who haven't liked us, they don't like putting labels on they children...they don't like some of our more "controversial" slogans (More Special Than Needy being a particular trigger)

Ahhh, just look at them. Sharing space, sharing an activity (ok yes they’re watching tv!) Being together is something that they don’t often do, they spend all their time together but in reality they are apart.

Naughty Auty

Nothing is sacred in this house! Not even the hidden jar of Nutella! Honestly I leave the room for one minute, thank goodness for that little snitch and avid rule follower sitting at the table.
