Fantastic news, IME Dc's can sometimes fit in at secondary as there is a bigger pool of people to mix with.
Dd1 managed to find a few like minded quirky friends at secondary after being friendless for 2 years at primary.
Great news about the button phobia, Dd3[9 with ASD] has been wearing shorts with buttons this summer for the first time in 7 years, she doesnt undo them or do them up yet but she can cope with wearing them.
I don't know if any of you remember me posting about ds2's button phobia? He is in the process of being diagnosed (possibly?) with ASD. He had a snake phobia at night which seems to be disappearing? I think the fact he's always out now with friends has helped a lot with his confidence?
He started comp (yr 7) on Wednesday and every day so far he's eaten. Buying wraps in the school canteen and having the snacks and drink I send in. His button phobia stopped him eating at primary and also at times at home. What's amazing is he's wearing loads more buttons now! He is ecstatic about the comp. I just can't believe it.
