Hi, I am the mum of 3. My eldest daughter is 5 and autistic. Are there any mum's out there who also have children with autism who would fancy meeting for a brew/chat. I live close to Bury.

Hello! I've got four, one diagnosed with ASD and my DD has just been referred.

Hi, thanks for replying. It's lovely to hear from someone in a similar situation. How old are your children?

Hi both, can I ask what schools your children go to and if they have good provisions for SEN children? My 3 year old has just been diagnosed with Aspergers and I'm trying to find a good school for him. We are currently relocating to bury. When we are in bury itwould be lovely to meet
Thanks

Hi, lovely to hear from you. My daughter goes to a special needs school in Rossendale. It's a great school but wouldn't fall under the Bury catchment area. I don't know any of the schools in Bury although we are not far away. Are you looking at mainstream or a special school for your son?

Thank you! I really don't know. We've just found out our 3 year old has Aspergers. He's due to start at our local state school in September (re emotion) but we are now a bit torn on what to do. We are currently in the process of moving from London to the bury area to be closer to our family
