Surroundings can change how children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) behave. Light, colour, sound, smell, texture and taste can all have an effect. These sensory sensitivities are common in autistic children and children with additional needs. They might make times like Christmas a bit tricky.
Over the Christmas holidays, lots of children will be spending more time at home than normal. This can present a new set of challenges for them and for you. Planning in advance will mean that you’re better prepared and can all enjoy the festive period!
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
