    Thank you babynomad and lovelieshere!
    It does give me some hope, we have just begun speech therapy and ot.
    She isn't serve as she is a level 2, doesn't have meltdown anymore will just go to her room and slam the door, once she has calmed down she comes out as though nothing has happened.
    She is picky with her food, but not her cloths. She can speak and say anything she is just in such a rush to get it out sometimes it doesn't make sense. She has been toilet trained since 3.5 years but doesn't remember to wipe!
    Do you mind if I ask why he has been to 4 schools?
    So there isn't a big pressure for them to act like a 'normal child' once in school?
    Did they get lot of support in school? I am meeting with the councillor and principle today as she starts next year.

    Loveliveshere that is such a lovely story. That's all we want isn't it , to know they will have some like minded friends.

    Finn has been to 4 schools because his first school he was 6 and so not ready . He was all over the place and couldn't understand what they wanted from him . He was very sad so i took him out a month in . Then we went to steiner which he loved but eventually got very bored . Then I home schooled him for a while . Then we moved to Queensland and he went to an independent school which was awesome but then we decided to put him in this school that is so relaxed , they do meditation and yoga and spend days climbing trees and being by the river . He is now thriving and learning . So even though it seems like we just kept moving him we did so because something wasn't right . And it's proved to be the right thing. I have a few friends who's kids are thriving and supported at main****** schools but for us it wasn't right .
    Good luck with school for your little girl . It's a scary thing isn't it . Im sure it will all be ok ❤️

    Hi @mumofrosealiened

    FYI there is another thread on here for ASD parents which some of us regularly post in:

    http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...e27&highlight=

    Feel free to join us over there

    My DS is 5 (moderate ASD, level 2) and will be starting school next year also. We were very fortunate to secure him a placement in a support class in a main****** school. We just felt (and our therapists agreed) that a main****** class environment would be a bit too much for him (he struggles to sit down and engage) to begin with. The aim is for him to integrate into a main****** class when he is deemed ready.

    Hi @Mod-Degrassi

    Thank u for The thread, I'll be sure to pop my head in lol

    A placement in a support class sounds amazing! Atm the school is just asking for the daycare to fill out a form on her levels of everything, but their saying she may only qualify for half an hour to a hour of teaches aid.
    Our paediatrician suggest that she needs ... Some more support other than teaches aides, I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called infer ... Inter ...
    I have considered homeschooling many times!! Although the main thing that stopped me is she is a very social children loves other kids and has never had a separation anxiety towards daycare.
    She does have a problem sitting down and paying attention.

    Hi, I'm new here. So glad a to find a parenting forum discussing ASD with recent activity!
    I have 3 children. DS 4.4, DD1 is 3 next month & DD2 is 8 months old.
    DS & DD1 were diagnosed with ASD about six months ago, both within a week of each other. My youngest was five weeks old. What a year it's been for us.
    I just wanted to say a quick hello and I look forward to chatting again soon
