I started writing S.E.N.D. in the Clowns years ago; it started off as a collection of diary entries and was mainly cathartic – I would write through tears of injustice. Through increasingly detailed research, I could see there was a compelling story to tell. So here we are – my aim isn’t to tell a personal story, but to help parents untangle red tape, stay engaged and feel empowered as they march, with their autism or ADHD child, through a system that struggles to educate children who are different.
