Autism . . . .
Family life . . .
It’s a strange one my 8 year old son is high functioning I mean he smashed his maths test this week 169/168 hence his treat, but that actually brings us additional problems as it’s like I feel the need to prove his autism, hearing the phrases he is too clever to be autistic, he looks normal all which drive me mad, you don’t have a look of autism 🙄😬, people don’t see the struggle we have on a daily basis, where Marley has no safety awareness, social skills are hard for him, his anxiety levels go through the roof just for a normal event, the selective mutism he has, the hard work we and his school put into keeping his routine to avoid a meltdown, but hey how lucky I must be he is clever I know people mean it in a nice way but it’s just so thoughtless . . . . . . . . .
