‘I had been concerned that it might be full of jargon I wouldn’t understand but I quickly realised this wasn’t the case and that it would be understandable and therefore useful… The book is written by someone living day to day (and sometimes hour to hour) with a child with additional needs, instead of an “expert” who has read all the research but has no idea what it’s actually like to have this as your life, where you can’t leave the issues at work when you go home because the issues are at home.’
— Lynne, parent
‘… a real wake-up call and a great eye-opener to next steps for parents and young adults navigating the future world on offer. It gives direction and support to those not knowing which way to go.’
— Scarlett, parent
‘Allows anyone at any stage to believe they can do it.’
— Tracy, parent
