Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of Happiness

- George Santayana

Lockdown after lockdown, cancelled activity after cancelled activity, parents are feeling the strain.  We know that children’s mental health was at worrying levels pre-covid and we know that the lack of certainty, time frames, support and decrease in quality relationships are all having a major impact on both parents and their children.  

With special needs in the mix, it’s particularly difficult.  And that’s been the over arching theme this past year from parents across the world, seeking more support for their children.  The African proverb:  "It takes a village to raise a child” is well known and a popular phrase to use, specifically for this reason and especially pertinent in a time like this.

I first met Georgina Smith, a Dyslexia specialist, through trying to find extra support for my own daughter. It didnt take long before Georgina and I started talking about our passion for helping parents and how we both did a lot of our work online.  The next thing we knew, an international online parent conference was born with this aim: 

We wanted to make sure parents could have trusted and accessible information, which could empower and equip them straight away in how they support their children.

And best of all, eight other specialists felt the same and jumped on board!  We are very proud of the line up of presenters, all very experienced and highly regarded due to their hard work and passion for making a difference.
