Hi I'm just wondering.  if any one with new diagnosis.. could help me .. understand.. everything that happens .. he has a district nurse . He also has had a lady he goes to thur sure start . For sensory play .. he is verbal but limited .. I've had quite a few visits with a few other ladys .. an they say it's for plan in action.. I'm waiting on word from education authority.. to see what school he will be placed in 
. He has moderate to severe learning difficulties.. but it seems I'm going from pillar to post on that matter .. I didn't send him to nursey.  As he is not potty trained .. I'm trying to get him potty trained .. so it's a little challenging.. can anyone help on this matter .. just so I have some understanding..an what to expect.. kind reguards..

    Hi @caithrina

    We've just seen your post and would like to introduce ourselves. We are part of the team for Autism and Aspergers advice and wondered if there's anything you'd like specific advice on that we could help with? 

    You mentioned above about getting a school place for your son, have you found that information out yet? We can further support re: starting school if needed, just let us know!
