All the volunteer supporters have been incredibly helpful and I will miss the new friends that I made on the course.
Will be trying to attend the coffee mornings in Colchester and Harwich where possible. Would like to volunteer with MAZE and give some of my time back to help other families like mine.
Thank you again – Debbie White”
“I am on my second MAZE course now and still learning new tactics from other parents/carers alike.”
“The support is fantastic and I made some great friends too. Also they had lots of Specialists on certain weeks which was really helpful, whether it be about helping with DLA, sleeping problems or how to interact with your child.”
“If you have a child on the spectrum or think your child might be, then please don’t hesitate, it`s been life changing. Thank you MAZE, you have been a lifeline (and the cakes are pretty good too!).”
This was rather unheard of a year ago, instead of hugging arms, it’d be hands round necks!”
But since the MAZE course and a lot of support from Sue and the lovely people that run the courses and coffee mornings, I’ve grown to realise that all the negative things others were saying about my child were wrong. I also have a wonderful loving partner who understands me and my son Alex’s needs and I’m finally getting somewhere with the diagnosis and help I’ve needed and been fighting for since he was 2 .
I cannot thank Sue and the team enough and also for giving me the opportunity to meet some wonderful mothers who are so much like myself in struggling to understand at times. I’m more understanding and less angry; I still have moments where I do lose it but not so bad as I did before MAZE. Love you guys x”
Also the course has helped us with our eldest Callum with his high anxiety and of course on top of that it’s hard work being a sibling to a special needs child. So he needs tons of support and involvement.
I have done the course twice now and both times I have been able to ask visiting experts questions that I wouldn’t have normally have had access too, as well as speaking with other parents, gaining tips and advice as well as sharing my own tips and ideas. It really is a fantastic course and I always recommend it to friends who I think could benefit from it. Well Done MAZE Team!”
