Hi guys,
well after falling off the planet for a while... I'm back lol (if you'll have me!)

We have had developments.. following his ADOS the paediatrician has told us she will be diagnosing Thomas with Autistic spectrum disorder, but wants to wait til after he turns 3 and has started at preschool. He starts preschool after the easter holidays 2 mornings a week, and the paed has arranged one to one for him. the school are great and will be using visual schedules etc for him like we do at home.

His speech therapy has brought his speech and understanding along a lot and he has finished his play therapy sessions. We are STILL waiting to see OT, desperately wanting this appt as he he badly needs a buggy for big lumps lol. His aggression is off the chart at the mo and his meltdowns are daily occurences so we are currently half way through an application for a safespace, fingers crossed!

So anyway, hope to be around a bit more and catch up with lots of other parents x x

yeah that sounds familiar. Thank God they have arranged one to one for him though as there's no way he'd cope without it, poor little guy is upset by everything at the mo, mostly sensory related
