Suad Ahmed

Hi, my name is Suad Ahmed, and I am originally from Somalia but I have been living in Tower Hamlets for the past 20 Years.

I am a mother of 5 beautiful children, aged between 9 and 16.  My two youngest children have SEND; my 10 year old son has Global Developmental Delay and Epilepsy, my daughter has Autism.

Having children with SEND comes with lots of challenges and can sometimes be a lonely journey, but it is also very rewarding and I can honestly say that my children have changed me to become a better person, they have taught me compassion and to appreciate the littles things in life that we can take for granted, which is one of the reasons I joined the SEND Parent Ambassador program. 

I enjoy giving back to the community and helping other parents, especially those who are just starting their journey into the world of SEND!

I believe in early intervention when it comes to our SEND Children and we must trust our insticts, the moment a parent tells me that they think their child isn't developing as well as he or she should I tell them to seek help and to get the support their child needs.
