Fantastic interview. Thank you. We are a birth family 18 months into DDP in the private sector. Our eldest child was diagnosed with dev trauma as a result of unmet infant needs due to undiagnosed medical problems that he carried for first 8 years of life. Can I urge Kim and all practitioners to include birth families in their thinking ACEs can affect any family. Early complex pervasive trauma can happen for any number of reasons. We were left without care locally due to referral pathways being closed to birth families. We were forced to seek support in the private sector. Thank heavens we were able to. 18 months later and stability has returned to our family for the first time in years. DDP has saved us. I know we are not the only birth family DDP could help. Please include birth families in your thinking and when talking to schools and health / social care / SEND commissioners. Thank you.
