    Hi @Dreambig82 and a warm welcome to our community!  How are you today?

    I hope home-schooling is going okay for you both; these are such difficult times and I hope we can be of some support to make things easier.

    One thing you might want to try is Scope's free Navigate service.  This is an online programme in which you'd receive help with:
    • organising your thoughts and feelings
    • practical advice and suggestions
    • coping strategies and insights
    • taking positive actions and helping you with emotional wellbeing
    For more details, and to find out if you are eligible, please click on the link above.

    To meet other parents/care-givers, try browsing our Autism and Asperger's discussion group or our Parents and carers category.  In those are stories and posts from people in similar situations, so please don't be afraid to comment if you see something you can relate to.

    I hope you are keeping well and let me know if you need any help getting around the community.  Speak soon!
