Diary of a mother of children with special educational needs
A mother who has three children with special educational needs has recorded an audio diary of her typical morning.
Debs Aspland's nine-year-old son has hydrocephalus and autism, her eight-year-old son is visually impaired, and her daughter has language, speech and communication needs.
Ms Aspland said her typical day was around 21 hours long and "on a good day" she could expect just under five hours sleep.
First broadcast on Tuesday 29 April as part of a special BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast programme on Special Educational Needs provision.
