Testimonials  Our families value the work we do and the service provided by Ryedale Special Families. Here are just a few examples of what they have said about us:  

 
EVERYONE GIVES 100%! 
 
“I cannot put into words really how much myself and my family think of Ryedale Special Families. We simply could not manage at certain times without the help and total support we receive. When we ask for help it is given without question.  
 
Only a week ago my son was not having a good week and his seizures and his behaviour were beyond belief. I asked for a worker to be provided and each night the help was there and much needed.  
 
As a single parent I rely on Ryedale Special Families to provide not only help for my son but for the whole family. I recently had a sickness bug and the sessional worker took over and provided the help I needed.  
 
Everyone gives 100% and the organisation is second to none.” 
 
 
OUR FIRST PORT OF CALL FOR HELP AND ADVICE! 
 
“Ryedale Special Families is an amazing organisation and has provided so much help and advice since our son was first diagnosed with autism. Due to their existence, we have as a family been able to take part in so many social events and activities over the years that we would not otherwise have enjoyed.  
 
Ryedale Special Families has been out first port of call for help and advice with problems we have encountered as our son has moved through the stages of childhood, and even though he is now a young adult, that is still the case.  
 
We can honestly say that without Ryedale Special Families the last ten years of our lives would have been a nightmare.” 
 
 
 
LIFE WOULD BE MUCH HARDER WITHOUT RYEDALE SPECIAL FAMILIES! 
 
"When things go wrong I know I can pick up the phone and the Ryedale Special Families team will be there and will help if at all possible. The office team are friendly, understanding and tolerant!  
 
The 1 to 1 carers who come into our home feel part of our family. I was concerned that “strangers” coming into my home would be really strange but the team make it feel natural and normal, bring laughter into the home and I value their opinions and support. 
 
Life would be much harder without Ryedale Special Families and the stellar work they do. My family and myself will always be grateful that my son has brought you into our lives. Thank you!" 
 
 
 
YOU HAVE MADE HER SMILE! 
 
"Ryedale Special Families has had a massive positive impact on both our daughter and the whole family generally.  
 
We really appreciate all the hard work you do and all your patience and understanding. 
Without you my daughter would have no social life with children her own age at all. You have made her smile!  
 
Thank you for all your commitment”
