And probable autism
How many days do ye think would work best.
I know ye don't know him
But just looking for opinions or to see what ye did
Thanks .
I want him to hve the best benefit of it
But without exhausting him

And can nap anytime he needs they said
Plus nurse there if epilepsy calls for it

Thanks hon.
Yeah they are very flexible.
She said he can go different numbers of days every week if we want
Depending on what he is able for
With epilepsy and tiredness.
Will just hve to wing it a little I guess
Thanks xx
Every child differs anyway
Or they can differ from week to week.
I'll know fast of its too much for him

It sounds like a great place anyway. Its nice that he will be able to get the most out of it without too much pressure.

Could you start with mon, we'd, fri morning.

My thought process is that he'll get rest days in between each session and mornings may be better as he'll be rested and can have a quiet afternoon to recharge.

Yeah it does sound good bunny.
I met with the staff and they were lovely.
Sounds like it could benefit him hugely.
So id want him to go as much as he can
But not overdo it.

Yeah Mon, wed Fri prob be best.
But they take them to the hydro pool two days a week.
Id love him to be there for both of them.
Hoping its not Tues and Thurs.
He is like a fishy in the water
He adores it!!
Does great exercises without even realising it.
They would hve his physio in the pool with them
And learn his program.
So would do his physio with him too.
The more I'm typing,
The more I realise we r lucky to get in there
Here's hoping he likes it now

I'm assuming that he will get 15 free funded hours. I would book mon-fri mornings ir afternoons, and if it's too much, cut the days down x
