A New Year

2019-01-05T17:59:24+00:00

We coped well this year. I'm guessing we have learnt from previous years in terms of what can trigger anxiety so now we just roll with our Christmas festivities offering lots of choices and keeping demands very low.  We have learnt to always be conscious of our child's sensory profile, it is there and hasn't [...]

Finding me again

2018-11-20T21:45:05+00:00

I was a keen gym goer for a few years. The gym was my second home, time away from being a housewife, homemaker, mum, and dog walker to our Goldendoodle. The gym was a place I could forget what was going on in our hectic life and the demands placed on me by our Aspergers/PDA [...]

Wrong way or right way – Child Play

2018-11-06T18:42:32+00:00

Definition of play - "activity engaged in for enjoyment and recreation, especially by children" So this brings me to my blog about play, what's right? what's wrong? I hear it from others all the time. Too much iPad time! Too much time spent gaming! I hate the kids on them devices constantly - they should [...]

A Unique Sensory Profile

2018-11-02T15:37:46+00:00

We were blind not to see our son's unique sensory profile from a young age, but then again we didn't even know there was anything wrong until we started to question things at age 6. Perhaps I should rephrase the "anything wrong". It wasn't "wrong" - it was simply his own sensory profile that was [...]

School transport – a new way that works

2018-10-07T18:22:45+00:00

Maybe you're like us? The nearest school that could meet the needs of your child's EHCP is miles away? Our school trip involves a 72-mile round journey a day. That's 18 miles each way, twice a day. When we found the school I was delighted. Shortly after though, I began thinking. How would our child cope [...]

PDA – Dealing with the effect and not the cause

2018-10-02T13:04:51+00:00

I am going to go straight into the subject this time. I have an 8-year-old Aspergers/PDA child though with or without a diagnosis it shouldn't matter. He was faced with total confusion for many years, sent outside the classroom many a time, restrained in front of others and dragged to the heads office. It became a [...]

The effect a dog can have on your aspergers child.

2018-09-27T13:10:03+00:00

The more I read about strategies to help a child with Aspergers the more the idea of getting a dog kept popping up in my mind. My son was struggling at the age of 6 years to make sense of his world, process information and interact and communicate with others in an appropriate way. Some of [...]
