i did the first coat on the celling, i was up the ladder and my son was up it too. eventually i had to give up, as getting up and down every 2 minutes tired me out. my son has to ask me everything like for his bottle even though his dad is right there doing nothing, he also asks me if he can go to the toilet (i have no clue why he does this) to have a wee but if he needs to do a number 2 he announces that hes having one really loud.

dale has gone to my mums for a few days so he can have a break, he hasnt had chance to play on his ps3 yet without the younger two wrestling for the control. so soon i hope to have the bedroom done so its his own space. alex is sleeping good in my bed so everyone is in fact getting better sleep.

my daughter had her own bedroom (little bedroom) and my sons shared a bedroom. but this was far from ideal and on a daily basis my oldest son was being attacked by his brother and was being woken throughout the night. now i have taken my daughter into my room and given my oldest her room, as he is getting older now and its having an affect on him. at the weekend ive always sent him to his grandmas so he gets a break and some normal time. but as my daughter gets older she will have to go back into her own room.

i dont want to end up having to send my son to live at his grandma's, and was wondering if we could put in for a bedroomed house or a extention built.

To becky 29,
I also live in a 3 bed house. I have a 15yr son with autism. My 2 boys ave there own room, i share with my 10yr daughter whos under assement for autism.
My housing dept seem to totally ignore my sons medical form and notes requesting he needs is own room.
Stating as i have 2 boys one 15 and other 12 they can share a room, and me and my daughter have our on room.
As they dont feel his autism! Requires his own room as hes "NOT SERVERLY DISABILED"..
I livedin a 4bedroom private house til recently as lanlord was selling up.
Ive tryed to get the housing to understand that Autism comes under THE MENTAL HEALTH ACT. As they suffer from stress, anxciety, depressing.( shouldnt this be enough for our children with any form of disabilty or mental health to qualify for there own room).
I havent given up, we now under cambs and i will fight for what my children should be entiled to, ( HELP AND SUPPORT).
So to all u parents going threw this pls dont give up, we not asking for a luxury house, just a suitable home with adiquet rooms for our family.
Thank you
