I posted early yesterday about managing to fill in a Social Responsiveness Scale test for my 9 year old son, as he is going through all the tests for autism at the moment after having problems from nursery. He is currently only in school for and hour and a half a day, gradually trying to build it up.
Anyways, went into the nursery to drop no.2 son off (he's 4) and thought I would have a chat with the head of the nursery as she had mentioned about deferring him school this year and wanted to ask her reasons why.
Bombshell!! Turns out that my wee "quirky" little boy, who is a sensitive little soul, is to be statemented before going to school as between her and the rest of the staff they think he is autistic too. Thing is I kind of knew in my heart, but with J being aggressive and violent and school refusing, my wee baby got forgotten about.
I feel so bad that I havent been noticing what he is going through as well. Sooo, appointments galore coming through for him as well as J. Beginning to feel like I am living groundhog day.
