Well I never! Today I had a visit from a parent support worker. It seems she has been about for a year or so but I've only just found out about her!
She was lovely and exactly what I need. She's there to deal with anything, autism, school, housing, money, and me! Even if I just want to moan at her... I can!!
It seems finally I've meet someone that is their to help.. Opposed to the "fill a form in, nah we can't actually help you" that I normally get.
Saying that, all is ok at the moment, S is doing well at school and already making progress. He got 5 spellings right last week whereas at last school the maximum ever he got was around 1!
He's also playing out alot and hurting himself with it! Nothing serious but more cuts and scrapes in the past 2 weeks than we've ever had!
So things feel a bit better knowing that I have someone that understands autism and that I can call anytime for anything, instead of just me sitting here trying to work it all out. Now I have someone I can talk it through with.
What type of support network do you have?
