Does Hayden have ADHD? 12

This week saw our follow up appointment after Hayden’s autism diagnosis in November last year. The appointment itself was a little disappointing if I am honest. We were in the consultation room for less than twenty minutes. I didn’t know what I was expecting but something a little more thorough than […]

An expensive new habit 8

Hayden had always had a fairly decent relationship with food. Whilst he will not eat things he does not recognise, he has a healthy appetite and generally gets quite a varied diet. Not as varied as I would like, but I know we could have it a whole load worse. […]

You know your an autism parent when… 8

Since learning Hayden may have autism and throughout the early part of his diagnosis journey, a lot of the time I felt quite alone in what I was going through. I didn’t want to research too much as I couldn’t process it all and I felt very much like even though […]
