Hi Paula,
been there got the T shirt! S went from being a passive child who coped well with daily life as long as autism strategies were in place, to someone unpredictable who started to display challenging behaviour. Hormones, autism , transition and new health problems were a difficult combination. I was permanently stressed too as I often felt powerless and could see him regressing and was dealing with this whilst fighting for funding and a suitable college place. Thankfully we are coming out the other side, due to a combination of strategies I developed for home, his age (he is now 23) and college. However, I'm worried what will happen after college ...
