This weekend, we held an event for families who have had children in an ATU (or are due to come out of an ATU).
We asked them a few questions and wanted to share a snapshot of the responses.
What did parents want from the day and what were the challenges they faced in attending?
We then asked them why their child/young person went into an ATU, what they expected hoped/for and more importantly, what actually happened. Their responses will be something you can probably relate to, irrelevant of your child or young person’s age or disability.
