Hi Paula, my son is now 36, he has severe learning difficulties, ADHD, dyspraxia and aphasia. However, at 36 he has now reached the point where he can live alone in a privately rented flat with carer support. At 20 this seemed to be an Impossible Dream, but bit by bit he matured and developed. I've got some health issues, have been banned for caring for him full time (!) as a result - but he knows that I'm always at the end of the phone and can be with him in 30 mins in the event of a crisis. He also comes home alternate weekends and we go on holiday together, using his Direct Payments "creatively".

Welcome Paula, my son is thirteen, was diagnosed with autism and epilepsy although there is a question mark over this now due to some other problems he has developed. Luckily mine's not been too stroppy yet due to the teenage stuff but he has announced he's not going to go through puberty because it looks ridiculous :)

Hi Paula and welcome,

I care for S who has autism. We have survived the teenage years! S still has his moments, but generally is much calmer and more predictable.

I hope you enjoy the forum.

Hi Paula,

Welcome to the Forum. A great place to chat with fellow carers. We all have different 'caring' situations but its a good place to swop ideas/experiences and I find I learn about other peoples experiences.

Welcome from me
