August’s top bank holiday SEND stories

After a two week break, the Special Needs Jungle weekly curation of the best of special needs posts is BACK! I've tried to include stories I tweeted while I was away in Italy being subjected to torture by invisible mosquitos. My top holiday tip if you have teenagers like mine is to make sure your holiday home comes equipped with free wifi for those inevitable downtimes, so you are never plagues with cried of, "I'm bored!"

My boys still have another two weeks and a bit weeks off, and I intend to spend some of it taking them to our new gym, as I'm fed up of us all being locked in our little corners of the house on our respective computers (though at least I'm doing actual work). The gym is brilliant with a huge pool and great facilities, including a spa (for me, obviously) and, of course, free-wifi so that Son2 can sit pedalling the cycle machine while playing on his iPad. Well, it's a start and a compromise, but at least part of him is moving.

Have a fab August bank holiday weekend and fingers crossed for good weather if you're planning a barbecue or a last dash away! Next week - the paralympics!
