Another year over.

We have ten days to go, one more Monday. School work will just be about finished now. This year I have seen my son progress in more ways than one. Not only his speech, his reading, his social skills, his playing but also his emotional well-being. So thank you. Thank...

Thank you

Thank you all for watching Z, for trying and possibly many times failing to dress him after he had stripped for the teachers attention! Thank you for working with him even though he most probably didn’t want to because he only had eyes for the teacher. Thank you for...

Regression, progress and wow moments

When you look back at photos and see how advanced in certain areas Z was. When M was down on the weekend and they were spelling, it took me back to my mates wedding when Z was of similar age, he was doing his number bonds to 100 and could spell lots of words like...

Dirty Dancing The Classic Story On Stage.

I was * invited to see Dirty Dancing on stage at New Theatre. For those that follow my theatre reviews will know I'm rubbish at seeing films! And guess what, I've never seen Dirty Dancing either! From the theatre production I've taken the story to be a rich kid...

Remember the new born stages, the disturbed sleep the awake at silly hours? Leaps and autism at 6 is quite similar. The difference being at 6 no one is as sympathetic, you still have school to get to and work to do. There's no oh don't worry about the house work, try...

Thank you for helping him to find his voice!

What is a teachers job?

When I was asking when Z's speech and language was starting I was told the teachers and lsa know what they are doing. As much as I love Z's teacher she is a teacher, she went to uni to be a teacher if she wanted to be a speech and language therapist she would have...

Infertility awareness week a year later.

Last hear I wrote about my journey to having Z you can catch that here, this year it's completely different. This time last year I was already on my hormones ready for embryo transfer, as we know that didn't work out, again you can read that one here. This year...

One term remaining.

In two days the Easter Holidays are over. We have one term of school left, one term that's it. Four weeks and a week off then the last seven weeks. Eleven weeks and that's this school year over. To think I was worried about Z, this year he's made so much progress in...

Chickenpox autism and refusals

The last day of school I was called in to collect Z he wasn't himself, a little warm and basically just saying every word he knew with a few spots on his belly. Chickenpox, even though they didn't quite look like the pox spots. I thought he may have had a sore throat...
