Parenting & Autism Discussions
Discussions for parents raising kids in the Autism spectrum.
My eldest is 8 and I broached the subject of AS to her teacher as she pretty much ticked all the boxes (aside from speech and language development... She was an early and very good talker) so they agreed and have put in a referral for her.
Well I had a meeting with my 2yr olds nursery worker, who said he is phenomenal with numbers for his age and said she'd like to speak to someone to learn how to better help him further with this. (She also mentioned he doesn't like playing with other children and gets very upset when they get in his personal space) I had a letter through the door this morning telling me that a referral has been made to the Early Years SENCO for him.
So now I have 2 children potentially on the spectrum aswell as myself, and all this has come about in the space of a couple of months...
So much to take in!!
