Through our Parents Network we aim to empower parents to feel supported, informed and inspired.In turn we want to help parents to support their child’s independence and encourage their development. This section brings together tips and recommendations from other families that might be interesting for you and your child. 

If you would like to contribute your suggestions contact us at: parents.network@whizz-kidz.org.uk or head over to the Whizz-Kidz Forum over on Mumsnet to continue the conversation!

Whizz-Kidz Patron Hannah Cockroft recalls her own family’s experiences growing up: ‘A fighting spirit has been a reoccurring theme throughout my life, and saw me go on to attend mainstream nursery, primary and secondary schools, being the first disabled student at all three and coming out with top grades. As long as my family are behind me, I’ve always been determined to go on to great things.

‘I’m behind Whizz-Kidz’s Parents Network, so to support other mums and dads get the help and advice they need to support their kids achieve their potential.’
