LOL debs, you wait until you've been posting here 5 years like me.... seriosuly at that lecture last week I could have easily annotated his notes on reasioons to get / not get a dx, effects on family and current diagnostic procedure about 10 times over (I only put hand up once, I figured if I was annoyed by the lady whose hand was permanently up then I didnt want people to feel same about me)
This board is incredible, I still remember the first reply I ever recived to this day, after a bad aprents evening. In retropsect I was in denial for a good whilse when ds1 ws small (he was first refered at 2 but we cancelled it) and I think this board was what kept me strong enough to fllow up, esp. when ds3 was picked up, and now with ds2
i agree totally,this board has been like my handook reguarding ds suspected asd. Im finding myself quouting comments from here to teachers and them looking back in shock at knowledge i have gained in such a short space of time,It doesnt seem so scary or daunting(well most of time anyway. so BIG THANK YOUS to you all. xx
It is lovely here, I don't venture out much anywhere else - don't need to. Don't know quite what I'd have done without the help and advice on here, and have learned looooaaaadddssss of stuff about other SNs too.
The Daily Mail shit really annoyed me and I am still quite wary of what I post, but I still read everything and will no doubt be spilling my guts to the next person who needs it, as so many did for me <<very very grateful emoticon>>
Just wanted to say I am finding this forum really helpful as I am just starting to go down assessement route for my DS and it is really good to know there are many other going or have gone through the same. And I am already starting to sound (a bit) like I know a thing or two when talking to school! thanks x
Hello Moonlight,I often post lots of random nonsensical drivel on the mb and have read your posts.I think it is normal to feel like this,but have found a lot of help from the sn board tho i still post much crap on the main board.SN has helped enormously though,everyone has been lovely and good if i want a winge.
Thanks everyone. I'm the type of person that 'finds out' things, but without the leads and the suggestions and the information given here it would have taken me 10x as long, and time isn't something my ds has, - so really, he's too young to understand or thankyou himself, but if he knew about you, he'd say to you all 'violet hexagon'!
this board could be a life saver for some ive been on here a few months now an what a difference its not just posting myself but also reading i aint alone and some are much worse than mine so it gives me a reality check to stop feeling sorry for myself an get on with it. i also use it to look up on dyspraxia issues for a friend of mine brilliant.
