I Have a 3 year old daughter who is under assessments of autism. I am strugling to understand how the support System work. I work part time and my daughter goes to nursery 3 half days even though I pay full days. lately I start strugling with everything like so many appointment and keep up everyday things. I am single mum and no support so I do the best I can with all the challenges my daughter is facing daily, I need help and I dont know where to search it.

    Do the nursery make you pay full days even though just only does half? That doesn't seem fair. Do you get any help with nursery fees or free hours? Could your daughter attend more to give you a break as you need to take care of yourself too <3

    Welcome to the community @istar :) Thanks for joining, and for being so open and honest in your first post here.

    It sounds as though you have a lot on your plate, and I can imagine it'd all be quite overwhelming!

    I've moved your post into our children, parents, and families category. You may also be interested in visiting our category for discussions relating to autism and neurodiversity.

    I'm wondering whether you might find it helpful to access one of our family services, such as Navigate or Parents Connect. Perhaps you could take a look and let us know what you think?

    Have you spoken to your GP about feeling stressed and overwhelmed with everything? They may be able to signpost you to some helpful sources of support. 

    What kind of support would you find most helpful at the moment?
