Can anyone recommend help for a stressed out and anxious parent of a stressed out and anxious DS17 yr13. Long, long story, he is now getting counselling at school, has been diagnosed as dyspraxic from age 7, but now they say dyslexic and suggesting AS. He is really unhappy, we are doing are best to support him but now I feel that I am getting near breaking point. Are there some good organisations out there where I could find someone to talk to? I have made a gp appointment for next week. Thanks. originally posted in the wrong place I think. sorry
