Hi, I have difficulties communicating and about to pursue an autism diagnosis. Have managed all my life academically and professionally (not always easy or perfect but manageable) but found myself struggling to communicate effectively with the vast numbers of professionals/officials in my son’s life. I have disclosed needs but they are not understanding or helpful and seem to intensely dislike me. My son has complex needs and as ever a LA committed to failing him. I don’t have any cognitive struggles, but could really do with an advocate who can help me communicate with these people. Any ideas how to find such a person?
