My name is Donna and I am a carer for my son who is autistic and has a learning disability. I live Middlesbrough and it would be nice to have people to chat to who are in a similar situation.

Welcome from me. I have a son with SLD, he's now 33. I know you will be worried about the future for your son, as I was. The best bit of advice I was ever given was to keep him in education as long as possible, he finally left at 22. He went from a special school to a special college, then various placements, each time gaining confidence and skills. Now he lives alone in a privately rented flat. We are all so proud of him, and he's proud of himself. No way in a million years did we think he could ever live alone, even with support. His flat is a palace, and the landlord thinks he's the perfect tenant. I hope this gives you some hope for the future.
