For lots of families, the arrival of the school holidays means a bit of a break and an opportunity to spend some time together.
But the arrival of the summer months isn’t a positive experience for everyone; school holidays can cause a lot of anxiety for parents whose child has a learning disability.
Without school to provide a routine for children, and a bit of a break for the parents, the school holidays are often when the real work begins (as Lucy wrote in her blog last year).

Have a good summer everyone,
P.S. The BBC reported on the lack of support during the school holidays last year too, take a look.
