S.E.N.D in The Clowns: Essential Autism/ADHD Family Guide by
S.E.N.D. In The Clowns started as a collection of diary entries and a way for author and mother, Suzy Rowland, to write through tears of injustice. But Suzy's aim isn't just to tell a personal story, it's to help parents untangle red tape, stay engaged and feel empowered as they march, with their autism or ADHD child, through a system that struggles to educate children who are different. Packed with guidance, S.E.N.D In The Clowns is a surprisingly positive and uplifting read.
A unique handbook of self-care and practical advice for parents who find themselves on the autism merry-go-round. S.E.N.D in the Clowns is a play on the acronym Special Educational Needs and Disability hinting that these children's behaviour may look like they are either the sad clown sitting quietly in the corner or the zany clown performing slap stick tricks to make everyone in the classroom laugh.

Autism affects all ethnicities, yet professionals do not always have the skills
required to support the diverse needs of autistic young people and their families from different communities. As a result, families from these communities often experience issues in getting a
diagnosis, access to educational and social care settings, appropriateness of social skills being taught to children, and misinterpretation of behaviour exhibited by these children, which can also
lead to higher rates of exclusions.
