Special Needs Jungle was started in 2008 by me, Tania Tirraoro, as a way of preserving the knowledge I had gained successfully navigating the ‘jungle’ of the statementing system for first my younger, then my older son.
Over the years, it has expanded from just a personal blog into a site is packed with useful information about special educational needs and disability issues faced by children and their parents.
It has personal stories from both myself and other parents, articles from charities and useful resources and has become a parents’ (and professionals’ for that matter) guide to the SEN reforms that are taking place.
In 2012, Special Needs Jungle won the CHANGE category in the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards, something that I’m especially proud of.
If you have a story to tell or know of a great resource you think others should know about, get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
And when I say ‘we’, since the start of 2013, Special Needs Jungle has had an additional voice – my friend Debs Aspland, who is virtually a walking wikipedia about special needs.
Welcome to the Jungle.
