There are 2 points that I want to make.
We have been here for 15 years – we are immigrants. There are language barriers. It’s not easy to get the right information, to connect with people. Independent Facilitation has helped.
During school years our children are in school and get lots of support- from social workers, occupational therapists etc. But when my son finished high school we felt completely lost. Everything was put on our shoulders.
Taking care of our son– appointments, looking for things for him to do, dealing with medical issues.
There is a big gap in the transition from school to adult life. Independent Facilitation helps me navigate this gap and takes some of the weight off my shoulders.
