Making Sense of it All
A parent and carer’s guide for supporting children aged 0-14 (4th Edition)
Making Sense of it All is designed to help parents of children with SEND aged 0-14 in West Sussex learn how to get the support they need for their child and family. It covers a wide range of subjects including diagnosis, benefits, education, health, social care, local leisure opportunities plus a directory of over 400 local and national organisations and an extensive jargon buster.
The book is firmly established as a must have guide for parents in West Sussex and is sometimes referred to as the “parent-carer bible”. Since we first published Making Sense of it All in 2012 we have distributed over 10,000 copies of the book.
In October 2019 we published a 4th edition of the guide. This edition includes major updates on the delivery of education, health and social care in West Sussex, a considerable number of new entries in our directories as well as a comprehensive index to ensure information is always to hand.
Making Sense of It All is available to parents free of charge (plus £2.50 postage & packing). You can order the book via the PayPal link. You can also enquire about free copies of the book via your school or local children & family centres. Reference copies are also available in local libraries.
