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 met someone that is there 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 a lot 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.
