    Is there a group for parents with kids with a mild intellectual disability/GDD?

      Hi Lisa, we are not aware of any specific groups. It may be worth contacting Mencap or the Greenwich Toy Library, see above for contact details.

    Hi, I’m looking for some help if anyone knows of any. Over the last year my husband and I have had a number of medical problems. I am now fully recovered and have to go to work. My husband still has problems breathing.

    The problem is we have a 10 year old special needs child who had moderate learning difficulties and is at 5 years behind his peers developmentally My employer has been very supportive but my leave is coming to an end so we need help with getting to and from school, mainly from school as I can take to school.. We have tried lots of places and it feels like I am being both pushed from pillar to post and going round in ever decreasing circles so does anyone know of any organisation that can help.

    Many thanks for any help advice or suggestions you are able to give
