Well done Taggies DD2. What an achievement.
My DS also did his DofE bronze - he was offered it through school as he could no longer be taken out of lessons for Social Skills sessions due to GCSE course work. He doesn't find being sociable very easy, but managed to volunteer on Saturday mornings at the local library for 3 months.They seemed to enjoy having mothering him and bought him a card and chocolates when he left.
He also completed his expedition last summer and the leader said he was the most organised student she had ever taken on an expedition seriously worries about other students as DS would forget his head if it wasn't screwed on
FWIW DS throws mega strops on a regular basis and doesn't listen to a word I tell him!!!

DD2 decided a while back she wanted to do the Duke of Ed Bronze.

I didn't for a minute think she could or would.

In the last month she has started football club (for the active bit) and has been volunteering (and enjoying!!!) at sunday school.

Bloody amazing!

And a mum at sunday school who wouldn:'t know about her aspergers, told me how great she was with the little ones.

Really bloody amazing!!!!
