    I think the old funding system must allow you to get 'stuff', because we've been told the NDIS don't fund items.

    We receive around 12K in funding a year, but it's only allowed to be used for therapies (which I think keeps it legit and prevents people using the funding inappropriately).

    Wow, that's a big change from the 12k total that you get for the HCWA funding.
    I have no idea how much we will qualify for with NDIS. To be honest, it's all stressing me out some.

    I just read this and hoping when I call fx they will help.

    Our speech said I would qualify for a trampoline etc I'm confused by it all :/ I guess it depends by Spd etc too?

    Found poop smeared on the toilet wall today. Got "I was playing, had to poo, pooed on wall and it fell in my pants" from Mr4, but it was very obviously done by hand. *sigh* Add it to the bed wetting 3 nights out of the last 7, and the random spikes in aggression and it's been a few week. I'm very tired.

    Has it improved since you posted?

    No wet beds since I posted. A few wet undies (he was headed to the toilet but took too long to get there) and same with poop.
    He has been just temperamental in general. Crying an awful lot.

    Hi guys.

    We have moved. **** flight I wanted to jump off the plane. I cried. A lovely lady came and carries my bags onto plane and off etc plus helped with DS! She's special ED teacher. I even hugged her lmao. I was so overwhelmed. By this stage I wanted to throw my mountain buggy Nano in the bin because removing the wheels etc like FFS!!

    I can't deal with DS's sleep we still co sleep. Any tips? I'm exhausted! I just need space.

    Our new house is much better but kinda on main road I've chained and padlocks the front gate I'm so nervous, DH says 'don't stress'. He's fine... Blah he also thinks he's fine? So now I'm second guessing everything FML. Yet I have the diagnosis. What would u do? Sigh

    Argh, Mr4s aggression has been levelling up serious amounts. Today, he tried to jam a bouncy ball into Mr6s mouth (and it was way too big so Mr6 got a busted lip) because he was angry at him. He's hit people a few times. He threatens to punch people a lot.

    He's also back to wetting the bed every second night, and yesterday as well as wetting the bed, he also had 3 accidents during the day.

    He just seems to be regressing at the moment. Poor kid.

    Going to trial him in Little As next term but I sincerely believe he is going to outright hate it. Can only try though hey.
