WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET OTHER FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN DIGNOSED WITH AN AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER LIVING IN THE SOUTH WEST ?
Friday, November 27, 2009
Hi everyone, yes I have it worked out. Thanks Amanda! I'm Elaine, mother of 4; 3 girls and my special boy. Kyle is 7 and was diagnosed with Autism in May this year after many frustrating years of being blamed for bad parenting. I have a very supportive husband in Troy. Kyle is high functioning but has many aggresive meltdowns and his behaviour is becoming more obvious around and by other kids. He attends a school in Bunbury which belongs to our church so he is well supported. There is only 59 students and 3 teachers so the all the staff is on board with anything going on for him. We are up to the stage of telling the other students but are unsure yet how we are going to go about it because Kyle although he knows his diagnosis doesn't like to talk about it. Any ideas? Thanks for the coffee morning it's good to meet other parents because as much as they try to, family and friends sometimes don't fully understand.
Best wishes to you all especially as we start heading to the busy time of the year and for us the hardest time of the year, with all the out of routine activities that are involved.
