Hi, I think you know me from another site (frostyfosty), welcome to the board here, it's a great source of support and info smile

I am Mum to 4 boys, ds1 has HFA / AS as his diagnosis, together with an eating disorder; ds2 has been flagged as having ADD or dyspraxia but is at an early stage of dx; ds3 has more severe asd and attends an SNU; ds4 is 18 months and seems NT but I am not a big fan of estimating chcikens for baskets wink. I also act as DH'scarer from time totime, though he has been well for a while now- yay!

You will get much good advice here.

Peachy - misread your post and wondered what being a scarer involved grin Thought it must be Halloween related smile

Hi Jan,
Welcome to the board. I have two wonderful DCs. DD is 5 and has severe language disorder with autistic tendencies, DS is 2.5 and I'm now pretty sure he's NT.
