"getting my son the help he needs"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Health visiting

(as a parent/guardian),

School were concerned that my son was behind developmentally, so they told us their concerns and we contacted the health visiting team in our area. I was really nervous about the whole situation, because it was a lot to take in, in such a short period of time. I guess my biggest worry was being pushed into something we didn't feel was right for our son and him getting overwhelmed by too much at once.

However I needn't of worried, my health visitor came out to my home today (it was my first time meeting her) and she was lovely. She made me feel at ease straight away, I really felt like she understood what I was feeling with regards to the situation and I never once felt judged, which was also one of my fears.

Now I feel confident about moving forward with her and the rest of the support team in getting my son the help he needs.
