My partner and I attended The Autism Show in London, on Friday 14th June. We decided to go on Friday rather than the Saturday as I knew that the train journey would have been a bit overwhelming for my son.
This week is Carers Week and is all about getting carers connected and ensuring that carers get the right support.
It has been two years since my nan passed away from Alzheimer’s, and it is still something that I struggle with today. When my nan was alive, my mum made the ultimate sacrifice and gave up her job to become a full-time carer.
My son is a big fan of Goosebumps; so much so that he watches a Goosebumps film at least once a week. In the special features part of the Goosebumps 2 DVD, there are a few science experiments, explained by Slappy and demonstrated by the actors in the movie.
When my son is busy focusing on a task or going out somewhere, and then we have to move onto another thing, he finds this transition difficult. If he feels like he hasn't completed a task, this will bother him and play on his mind for the rest of the day.
