Nadia and her partner live with their 3 children, including a baby and her 7-year-old son who has autism*. Their home life was chaotic, with both parents trying their best to care for their son but finding his learning disability a challenge. Their house was in disrepair with heating a continual issue. Thus, they were all sleeping in one room.
SHS Practitioner, Zeenat, is a Special Educational Needs (SEN) specialist and began working with the family to provide emotional and practical support. Since they met, the family have had training in autism, have secured a computer through a family fund to help calm their son, and have had their housing issues addressed after persistent calls to the landlord.
“I am very happy that Zeenat can help me and come with me to meetings. I feel better when she is there she can explain to me everything better.”
