I know I'm slightly hijacking my own thread but is there anyone on the Forum whose ASD child has commenced Term-time weekday residential at their special needs school?

What were your initial experiences? How did you cope from, effectively 24/7 caring to weekends only? How easy did you find adjusting your life around what I can only see at this point as being such a huge emotional void?

I know it's only a possibility but just want to prepare myself.


PS - am OK with this part being moved to its own separate new thread.
