Being a parent is hard, and being a parent to an autistic child can be even harder.
I've supported hundreds of parents to understand their children better, and I know it isn't easy.
As a parent, you're doing your best and you can often worry about how your child is going to cope growing up or who will look after them. You can also feel like you've made many mistakes and worry about if your child will ever feel for you or understand how hard you're trying.
It can often feel like you have to fight to get even the tiniest of support and like things are never going to get any easier. But they can.
It's frustrating as often it's lots of small changes that have big impacts over time. But to know what things to do can feel impossible. With waiting lists being long and professional support not guaranteed, it's hard to know what the right decisions are.
I can help: have a little read below to find out how.
Examples of what we can talk about:
Sensory support in the home
Sensory ideas for school
Understanding & managing behaviour
Strategies for physical behaviour
Over three sessions we will:
Cover what the senses are
Help identify your child sensory needs
Help make a sensory diet for them
We can do this in a voice or video call.
By understanding your child's sensory profile we can make strategies to avoid meltdowns at home and in school. This can also be useful for seeking a diagnosis of autism or sensory processing disorder.
Being autistic myself I can help explain what your children might be experiencing.
I've also supported hundreds of parents so you're in understanding hands.
