It is quite nice to be back, hope a few more people do start coming back now, this is a real useful tool as can pull up searches from archives. Facebook not quite the same for me, I see few post now and again but lots I do miss too. So don;t think I have been ignoring anyone for not replying.
I found this forum about 10 years ago when middle child was dx at 2, can certainly say it has been a roller coaster ride for sure. Would say my knowledge of autism and the system has greatly increased and still learning. As now all 5 of my children are dx.
My middle son is in a lovely local specialist school, writing his name. Communication app on I pad they have just introduced for him, he 12 now, still non verbal but manages to let us know what he likes and dislikes.
My oldest is doing A levels and is working hard. He wants to do Math's degree at uni. So proud of his achievements. Now the visits to uni are going to be underway. Still playing Ice hockey.
My dd who is now 14, is talented artist and likes to sing and dance still. Just gets on with life.
O my youngest boy is doing fine at MS, encylopedic knowledge on lego mini figures. He likes to remove the heads and will still know who they are without the body attached.
A my youngest is the one struggling school, just going through EHCP for her, my hats go off to all the parents who have already been to this battle ground. As I very daunted by what lays ahead, but not so scarred as how I have a read a lot of what members have been through.
She is fine at home, not so good at school and has just been excluded.
Hope everyone else is well
