Welcome to the forum.
My son has SLD, now 42, he has a lot of support.
What help are your children getting?
Does your daughter go to day services?
It would help you if she could move out, somewhere local, so that others help caring for her, and you know she is in safe hands.
Social workers need constantly chasing. It's exhausting.
