Here are some suggested organisations that offer expert advice on special needs.
I just got my son's Atec rules yesterday where he scored a 48. He is 3 and 1/2. I didn't think that was too bad but when I read up on it it said that under 30 they can expect to lead an independent life so this has obviously really upset me as I hadn't really contemplated anything else for him. Has anyone any insight on this test? I know it's not a dignosis (I am fully expecting a hf asd dignosis )just used as a measuring tool and I was very critical filling it out. I'd just love to know if anyone could explain it to me a bit better.
He's 3 of course he can't live an independant life at 3.
No one knows how any child will develop just encourage and support him. My friend used to say 'aim for the moon you may just hit the stars'
I never really thought of it about his ability now, I kind of thought it was that he would never live an independent life. But yes there is no way any 3 year old would be able to live independently I just didn't really understand the results and I was hoping someone here might be able to help me get a better understanding.
