I'm Dizzy, I am mam to three children. My eldest son, who is now 18, has a diagnosis of HFA and Asperger's Syndrome, and my youngest son, who is 11, has a diagnosis of Dyspraxia. I live in Doncaster but am originally from Liverpool, which to me will always be the place I call home. I spend most of my time ensuring my boys have what they need to 'Survive,' and cope in a world which can often be very confusing for them, whilst trying to raise awareness wherever and whenever I can. I do this by sharing experiences with other parents who have children on
I'm staying anonymous as possible as I have recently had a very difficult time with my son's school. Instead of listening, referring to professinal documents and asking questions they concluded that I was lying about his difficulties.
I wonder how many other parents find their children's behaviour in school is reasonably good with their child 'keeping it together' most of the time, but then letting it all out at home?
Hello, my name is Sheila and I have a 9yr old (soon to be 10) Asperger son. We home educate due to a very bad experience from school. Been home educating for about 2yrs now and loving it.
