David, my eldest son, has been in mainstream education since he was 5, but that doesn’t mean his brothers will do it at the same age.
On the contrary, I don’t think it’s possible, but I’ll fight for that day. David has known since he was 8 years old that he is autistic, but that does not mean that his brothers will be at the same age, but they will know when they are ready.
What is it like to work when autism is at home?
The biggest advantage of working from home is that you do not worry about children, you are present, it is true that more physical.
But for my children, the benefits can be seen in the progress they have made.
I do what all mothers do.
I have the greatest sense of guilt when I do normal, typical things.
Because bad people in the guise of good therapists tell mothers like me that they are not allowed to live. Everything must be dedicated to the autistic child, everything must be therapy.
You are no longer allowed to cook, wash, sleep, or talk about the luxury of reading or watching a movie or going out. No, you should look awful, be depressed and have dark circles, otherwise it’s clear you don’t love your child or autistic children. You are not allowed to spend anything on yourself.
I smile and I like my imperfect smile and my chin with personality that the big boy inherits from me.
And seeing how much David looks like me, I feel beautiful.
