Any parents here with autistic children? Any helpful advice


Any parents here with autistic children? Any helpful advice or suggestions. I feel like the older he gets the more difficult it is to take care of him. My patience is wearing thin with him and I know it’s not his fault but some days are harder then others.

My mom thinks my 8 year old son has autism, I’m not sure I agree but I do know he has issues with attention and did get a “sort of” ADHD diagnosis, which hasn’t been enough to get him additional support at school. I have been struggling to get him and IEP at school, and have had him go through numerous tests, idk what is going, if all the kids are suffering from wearing masks and lack of oxygen, but I have really struggled with getting answers, and between working almost Full time and the behavior problems on the days I do have him, I am going nuts. Keep fighting, I hope you get a diagnosis, it’s really really tough for some reason!
