Hi my name is Claire I have two teenager boys with Autism and learning disabilities. They both attend a special school. My oldest boy has anxiety and depression and is on respiridone. It's very hard at the moment as he struggles to eat, move quickly, get motivated, gets very angry and has major meltdowns. My youngest son is more easy going and social but has special education also, has mobility issues too.
