The following was written by a good friend of mine called Jenni who blogs at Chilling with Lucas She has experience of working with learning disabled children and adults so knows what she’s talking about in terms of this subject. Over to Jenni…   Supporting someone with autism can be incredibly challenging but finding routines that work […]

So we’re currently on holiday and I have to say, it’s been pretty fab so far.  The weather is incredible, I’m in a part of the world that can only be described as Alice-Heaven and everything at home is running smoothly.   It’s pretty strange not having Jude here.
