Hi there, , I am a mum to an awesome 3 year old boy just diagnosed a month ago with ASD. It was not a shock as i always knew. I had one night of crying and then i pulled myself together. I love my son, he is so special. Has an angelic quality about him (except for tantrums!). I don't want to fix him but I do want the best life for him as we mums all do for our kids.
He was Diagnosed mild/ moderate. Im hoping to get some new friends for support on here or even to start a little playgroup for him. Im in sydney north west.
Im at the moment doing all the forms... wondering where the money for therapy is going to come from !! The pediatrician said he needs minimum 12 hrs a week therapy ....... Im also trying to get him into pre school but toilet training him is going to be hard....
Anyhow, would love to know how you other mums feel , your positive stories and your fustrations... boy do i get fustrated some days!!!! My boy is physically so strong and 18 kilos... if he is having a bad day and im out with the baby and him it can be hell but most days i look at his handsome little face and smile. He sure is a one off!!!
looking forward to chatting and going through this together and maybe meeting up for coffee in a playground somewhere with some of you.
