    How long has your DS been diagnosed and do you have therapists that work with your son regularly?
    He was just diagnoses November last year so we are still in the process of applying for a fund. Yes we see a speech therapist every week and an OT every forthright. I spoke to the assistant principal today and she said that she will talk to the aide. I feel so exhausted and frustrated I want to go to school and yell at them all!
    My son had an aide ay childcare and she loved him! He did not act like that to her they get along very well. The fact that his aide at school now told me that she has 2 asd with asd gave me confidence that she will understand my son but after 2 weeks she changed her attitude... I can’t understand.

    So I got somewhat exciting news.
    After a dance around with ndis and service providers, finally have a key worker. She has designated an o.t and a speechie for ds2, and we meet them next Wednesday.
    More exciting, we know the speechie. She did Speech with both my boys when they were in early intervention.

    As much as I would of liked more kids. I value my sanity a great deal more...
    I feel the same about DD2 sometimes, the exhaustion can be overwhelming. I feel like DD1 and DD3 miss out on soooo much especially a happy Mum a lot! Now that Kinder and Daycares are 4 days a week I feel like DD2 has calmed down ever so slightly, swimming starts in 3 weeks, I am hoping that help too.

Like as in no electronics? I hope I make sense. I’m so drained. I hope I get this Bunnings job so I don’t have to deal. I’m so drained. Not sure how much longer I can deal. Also we got a new dog and he hates her. Specifically for him. Fine with our other dog but would t share with dd. Feel like I’m failing right now. Just want to run away. He also cut my hand with a knife this week. He loves cooking so I try promote cooking then anger gets in way if not his own way. Ugh!
    I find wine helps me deal ( not really ) it’s just soo good! Sending you big hugs

    What sort of things should we be talking about with an OT at our first appointment? I’m not really sure what we need to mention or do we mention everything?

    Things like every day self care. Dress themselves, use a toilet, feed themselves.
    Things like if they have sensory issues with things like water, or certain substances.
    Things to do with eating in general.
    Sleeping patterns.
    Working on body strength, be it things like riding a bike, or small things like holding a pencil or a spoon.
    You would talk about different things that might help with all of the above, and the O,T should be able to help you set up stuff to assist with all of that.
