Hi, at the moment my mind is all over the place, first let me start by saying, i have twin girls 3yrs of age, twin1 is talking, potty trained, doing all the normal things, that a child does, whereas twin 2, has now been diagnosed with autism, Prior to this, she had been through all the test, hospital appointments and so forth, to tell you the truth, everything is very new to me, as i spend most of the time reading up and trying to educate myself about having a child with autism and learing how to deal with it. they are due to start full time pre-school nursery this september, whereas the nursery does deal with kids with autism, depending on how severe the child is, but in my case they will not be able to take twin2 on if she is not potty trained, which is another dilema for us as parents. What i would like to know is..1). is there any other mothers out there , who is in the same situation? 2) how did you go about it? 3) i know the help and support is out there, however what does it entail? 3) what am i entitled to even though i work partime on WFTC? 4) What happen's now, with regards to me getting her into a nursery place, come this september?.. To tell you the truth, i am slightly worried and concerned as everything is such a blurr to me and i'm so looking forward to be hearing your feedback....
