Trust Our Own Instincts

We are the expert on ourselves, our child(ren), our relationships and what is and what isn’t possible in our situation.

Unfortunately, most professionals are not adequately trained in assessing and supporting us and our children, not for nothing, there are written books about the risks for mis- and dual diagnosis. And sadly many of us have experienced not only being blamed by our social environment but also by professionals for our own and/or the behaviour of our children without receiving the much-needed help. We often end up being the expert on our own child, while battling with feelings of inadequacy trick-or-treating us by our contact with professionals.

Receive the Information and Support you Need

Informing and educating ourselves helps us to feel confident and secure with our role as an advocate for either ourselves or for a child and to make informed decisions about whatever issue that arises, whatever route we decide to take. This allows us to be the best advocate for ourselves and for our child.
