I’m very proud mummy to my son who is yet to be told he has autism but I have been told he is border line which I have no idea which that mean. I feel like I’ve got no where to turn as the family around me think it’s normal and he will be fine. He has recently had a visit from the child development team and I do t where to go from here. He has been lashing out at other children at his nursery and which I’ve told them he does like to left alone when they said he struggling to make friends and has no interest in making friends, and I’ve said if they get too much he will lash out and they seem not to take any interest in me. Is this just me or have other parents has this too? I’m scared he isn’t going get the help that he need through out his life. I’ve also been told it’s a 2 year waiting list before he has his final assessment and that’s what is scary to me as he isn’t getting any help that he needs
sorry to put so much but I just do t on where to turn anymore
No worries, just realised my post has appeared multiple times! I was referred for a support worker by the school nursing team it was something called an early help plan, but I have been told health visitors can make the same referral. You can find information at local children and family centres.
Mine has been really helpful I didn't think I needed support as I have been looking after children for 23 years! But it has been nice just to have someone who worries about me! She even sorted me a new tumble dryer when mine broke, just to ease some stress!
Anyway good luck!
