Blogs that make a difference!
Certitude has been one of the sponsors of the awards for the last three years. It’s a brave thing to put your life on display on social media – the commitment of SEND bloggers to share their experiences to benefit others and to make a difference is extraordinary, and Certitude is proud to support these awards.
The awards ceremony took place this year in Leicester on Wednesday 3 November. It was a smaller event than usual given the ongoing impact of the pandemic, but the 100 parents who attended certainly made it a night to remember!
We sponsored the Educating Education award. We all know the importance of getting a good education and how hard this has been for many of the people we support and continues to be for young people with disabilities.
This was a strong category won by Danielle Jata-Hall who has a website called PDA Parenting where she talks about her experience of being a parent to a child with autism and pathological demand avoidance.
I wanted to highlight a few in addition to Danielle’s website that I think could be really useful for so many of us, as well as people we are supporting and their families.
