Faith Mummy has had a tough time recently and her response ‘facing major surgery’ made my heart go out to her. Fingers crossed it won’t need to go ahead, but if it does.. we are with you.
Mummy Est 2014 says, “This is my first summer holidays with 2 children so I will only be going places if I know that J will be supported either by extra adult (family or friend) or where I know I can meet news of both children at same time! Some places J needs more support than others but I also need to remember I have a baby to take into consideration too so I can’t support run and chase J if he gets upset/anxious.”
Girls Gospel says, “I’m taking both kids and the dog camping by myself this summer. It’ll be challenging but also totally worth it. My 8 year old son, Sam has autism and is non verbal but he loves being outdoors. I’m hoping it’ll break up the long break from routine for us all.”
About Ann .
“Rainbows are too beautiful,” said Anthony. “I just can’t look at them.” Ann says her son’s statement characterizes so much about how her autistic and neurotypical family interacts and interprets the world in their own wonderful way.
Originally a PR and marketing professional for the third sector, Ann now does some lecturing in this topic but spends most of her time being a full time mum and sharing her experiences through her award nominated blog. Ann’s three kids attend different schools and have multiple diagnoses including Autism, ADHD, anxiety and more. Ann is a Trustee on a local disabled children’s charity and speaks at SEND conferences and consultations.
