Hi, my name is peter
We have a 10 year old daughter, Aurelia who has a sensory processing disorder and speech and language disorder. We're hoping to speak with others who might have a similar situation. Her disability doesn't seem to fit into any standard area and therefore it is difficult to know how to best support and give her what she needs. Her disability isn't immediately visible but she has problems with short and long-term memory, doesn't write really or read, difficulties contextualising situations and doesn't have the ease of language which allows her to relate or describe what she is experiencing. At the moment we are looking at alternative schools that might be able to provide her with more specific support specially now when she is moving towards her secondary years and where everything in the curriculum is accessed via reading and writing. Any thoughts? Peter
