Life with a child on the Spectrum

Scroll down to content

My son “The boy who loves balloons “is aged 8 and is on the Autistic Spectrum.

At age 4 he was diagnosed. From that point, I, his mum, have embraced his diagnosis, educated myself in Autism and loved every minute I have spent with him.

This blog is where I hope to share our journey together. My mission is to make parents smile and laugh and bring a bit of humour to the subject of hidden disabilities. Most importantly I want parents to know they are not alone . I hope to be able to give friendly advice to parents and carers in the same situation and share experiences. I believe that as parents of children with additional needs, it is important to not feel isolated. I also believe that children and adults on the spectrum are truly amazing and deserve praise, support and recognition.

I hope to add something to this blog as regularly as I can . Please feel free to comment, ask questions and share experiences.

Love mum to the boy who loves balloons 🎈
