My son Oscar is level 3 Autistic with PDA, ADHD, OCD and mixed anxiety disorder. He is awesome but fighting for him is exhausting. Hope to encourage others here in their fights.  <3

    Hi @HaliJo welcome to scopes forum. I can imagine it is hard having to fight all the time for your son. But your doing a good job, I'm sure alot of parents on here face the same hurdles

    Hello @HaliJo and a warm welcome to you. How are you keeping?

    It sounds like you are meeting Oscar's needs brilliantly although I get how exhausting fighting for him must be. Do you feel you both have enough support?

    And, yes please do share any words of encouragement with our caregivers battling the same. You might find out Autism and neurodiversity category, and Children, parents and families category full of stories you can relate to  <3

    I hope you and Oscar have a lovely Easter if you're celebrating it, and don't eat too much choccie! Take care.
