I'm a single parent of a lovely young man named Jacob, 22, and a lovely younger man named Daniel.
Daniel recently turned 18, and he is diagnosed as autistic, none verbal and has a severe sensory perception disorder. 
He has been home with me since day one of lockdown, and he needs constant 24/7 support and supervision. 
He's recieved no input from education, nothing on his ehcp has been adhered to, and I have nearly totally broke down. I've had no support whatsoever until we hit crisis point due to my own ill health. 
Only emergency help is available, and once you hit crisis I'd say that's too late! 
Anyone have any advice? 
My son isn't returning to his school now, due to his progress at home being amazing by the way, despite it having a knock on effect to my own health.
