If you are a regular reader of my blog you probably know that my two boys both have a diagnosis of high functioning autism, sometimes called Asperger Syndrome.
My boys are very different, both have different needs but thanks to some great support they are on their way to fulfilling their dreams.
It was not always like this. Our journey to diagnosis for the boys was long, convoluted and costly. In many ways it was so much easier with Daisy, her disability was so extreme and obvious the support clicked into place immediately.
It’s different with the so called “invisible disabilities” however. The lifelong neurodevelopmental disorders that fall within the autism spectrum are difficult to spot and children can fall between the cracks in our broken system without the support they need.
