Hi I'm Sam and I have a 4 year old with ASD. I try to not let it rule my life and I'm really trying to stay positive and share the great things he does and celebrate all the things he is doing . I also sometimes get down and sick of it and how life with an autistic child can be a test of patience ! Sometimes I just need to talk to someone who gets it. Family don't !
I have chatted with a few people on here but I thought lets start a fresh support group online for all of us who have recently got a diagnosis or have had this in their family for a long time .
Anyway, I'm here to chat, swap ideas, celebrate with you and be someone to listen on the bad days. Im also really interested in those of you who are doing different diets or anything that's helping your child.
I have two other kids. , so far neuro typical , my son has had autism since birth I don't remember him ever bejng engaged and switched on , but he has come on in leaps and bounds recently and we are actually having conversations . I love him to bits , he has something about him that is hard to put into words but he is an extraordinary kid.
Anyhow . That's all folks! Hope to chat !
