I'm mum to a 6 year old boy with a diagnosis of ASD. Currently awaiting assessment for ADHD also.
He attends a special school, has well above average intelligence, receives Occupational Therapy for bilateral coordination difficulties and deep pressure exercise and has sensory difficulties across the board.
Dad works full time; I work part time, study and do voluntary work around his care; little sister starting preschool in September
anyone else in Northern Ireland?
Nice to virtually meet you
