Child care

Hey! My name is Beatrice. I have two children, both are healthy. I have a sister who has a child with autism. She tries to cope on her own, but I help her as I have time. I registered on your forum to learn more about caring for children with special needs, share the experience of our family and generally find out useful information about various conditions and help with them. Who knows what life might turn out to be.

Hi Beatrice and welcome to the forum

It's nice that you're able to support your sister in caring for her child. We have an area in the forum specifically for autism and aspergers which you may find useful to look through:

Best wishes

Hi Beatrice, welcome to the forum.
What age is your sister's child?
Is she claiming all the benefits she is entitled to?
Aware of the Family Fund?
Money doesn't make anyone better, but it certainly makes life easier.
