    Welcome to the community @Leema1
    How are you and son, doing today? I am sorry to hear your son, we are all here for you. I have moved you over to our 
    parents and carers discussions, where other members can support you. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Scope have recently launched a new service called Navigate.  Navigate provides a six week programme of online and telephone support to parents who have a child going through diagnosis or have a child who has recently been diagnosed with a disability (within 12 months). The aim is to provide parents of a child with a disability with emotional and practical support.

    If you think this may be something that could benefit you please visit https://www.scope.org.uk/family-services/navigate or call 0808 801 0510
