2010 was a difficult and emotional year. I have not got far into my blog to tell you what happened to my autistic son in the last few years - I am trying to present a chronological account of our experience. This will not only be therapeutic for me but it may just help someone else out there who is going through some of the experiences we went through. I promise that I will continue with this once normality (well, my version of normality) returns in my household. What I will say, however, is that 2010 was the year in which my son made huge strides as he recovered sufficiently from severe anxiety/agrophobia to attend a special school. Now as I look to 2011, I have hope that my son will continue to develop his self-esteem and confidence in a school that ‘understands’ autistic spectrum disorders. For the first time in years, we are moving in a positive direction with regards our son. However our positive outlook is rather tainted by an impending fight for my daughters inclusion in mainstream primary. She is 9 years old and has low auditory and visual processing difficulties as well as social, language and communication difficulties – consequently we are on a waiting list for an assessment for an autistic spectrum disorder. So it seems that 2011 is likely to be another challenging year! I’ll keep you posted.
