Wake from slumber fresh and New

Smile and move do the things you do

FUELED correctly ready to go

One step at a time we walk out the door

With a cheery good morning and welcoming smile

Set yourself a challenge to say good morning to 25 strangers

See them smile back no dull faces or danger

Widen your path grow networks wide

This simple challenge daily will blow your mind

New Connections made ,friends and happier days

Not just for you but many that day

How do you feel ?!!!!

That’s right far better than before

More determined to get out and grow some more

Take this ethos where ever you go

Light up your future with a simple Hello

I have a protector
A gardian angel
She travels in far of lands
Born from different stock
Matched only by our spirit
She has many different names
And Crosses many seas
She knows not what she does
Or why she means so much
I feel her Pressance
I hear her words clear
From liking my work
To shielding my life
I honour her with my support
And the acheivements I obtain
Most of all by being me
Our spirits as one we are strong

  Living with the mixed up world off a
                              Child

As an adult it has made constant bedtime reading. To try and come too terms with what these disorders mean for our 13 year old son.
    I would help him understand whete he fits if we atleast have a clue what we are seeing. And that we then need to get for him or do to help.
    The Scottish Education department are very reluctant to diagnose these conditions or deal with them relevantly. In our experience since Patrick was 4 and started Main Stream School. The Educational Phycology department refused to allow Patrick too attend a Special Needs School even a few days a week. As in there specialist opinion he was copeing well at his level with school !!!!!.
   Patrick was diagnosed with a 3.5 year learning delay at 5 . Which was not propperly dealt with educationally with appropriate help or assistance. This continued and still was a problem when finally diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 9 years. So now there are two things to consider , the teachers at his school done 110% with the knowledge and equipement they had.
    This asside the system was drastically lacking in any consistancy. They were failing to do the proper reporting on him or his developement.

So Patrick has litterally been treading water since he started School. Being Bullied daily by his peers and others because of his condition ect. Not wanting to go too school,shutting things away , not telling anyone what was happening or interacting with school work properly.
   This was acceptable too education department proffessionals !!!. Which as Parents was very disconcerting and annoying. So we banged our heads of every door and wall we came across fighting for him too get what he deserved too grow and improve.
   Then there was the input of Grandparents that deny to this day that he has any issues at all. Filling his head with rubbish that a) he dont need and b) that doesnt help his growth and developement . As if things were not hard enough for him and the rest of our  family unit.
   We were getting totally down and finding it hard to find away to get things done.

As a family we have always wanted to move but finding the house and area we wanted was slow. But then an offer of a house came to our salvation,so off I went to the area in question to view the property. While waiting on veiwings ect I saught schools for Patrick especially then David 10 and Emma 4. In the period of a few days I had viewed the property and found 3 schools with spaces for all the kids.
  This know jst relied on passing all the checks ect for the property. The packing begins just incase its a yes. Preparing everyone for our move which for some you would think we were moving to outerspace.
  Two weeks later we got the news we hoped for and we had 2 weeks to move in. Hard work and persiverance had paid off.
  Patrick would be attending a Special Needs School with all the assistance he requires. 4 bedroom 3 bathroom house and appropriate Schooling for the other kids job done !!.
   Its a few months since the move and everything for the family unit and Patrick are a lot better. There are a few programming issues to iron our re Patricks behaviour and thought process but there is time.

(This is just an outline of what we as a family have went through to get too where we are)
