Autism and our Family

DSC_0230.jpg

We love our boys very much and try to do the very best we can but like all families, we're learning as we go along.  Raising a family is challenging enough and especially so when there are additional needs - our boys have both been formally diagnosed with High Functioning Autism (HFA), sometimes referred to as Asperger's.  This diagnosis of course doesn't change the fact that they are our sons and that their autism is after all an integral part of who they are and therefore we wouldn't change a thing...

Autism help?

We don't have all the answers (does any parent?) but I would like to think that if you're struggling as a family with a new diagnosis or some of the more common problems often seen in autism, such as issues with sleep, food, sensory, school, social, organising the day to day and fears/anxiety etc. that I'm quite happy to help you in any way I can - in fact we may help each other...
