"I remember at the first workshop, I just couldn’t believe it when the instructors went through what they could teach us and how it might help Jacob. I just sat there and cried. I was thinking ‘this could be life-changing, it’s just amazing.’ It was also brilliant to meet and talk to other parents of children with autism. I remember thinking ‘We’re all in this together, our struggles are real and these people really understand. We are not alone.’” - Liz, Jacob's Mum and workshop attendee.
