Hi i am Finlay. This is my first ever forum

I’m not sure if I’m doing this right so apologies if I have inadvertently posted in the wrong place. I am introducing myself. I am a mother of a teenager with severe learning disability and autism.  We have survived another Christmas but it gets harder each year. Son not really interested in presents or food for that matter. Hello to everyone here.

    Hi @FinlayFire - Welcome to the community. You have indeed 'landed' in the right place to introduce yourself. So thank you for joining & sharing. It must have been a difficult time for you, I'm sorry.
    Anyway, please have a look around, & if you have any questions, or could do with some advice, please say.
