I’m the parent of an autistic child. My son is now 18. Harry is no longer a cute toddler or an inquisitive child. He is an adult. An autistic adult. And I find that a little daunting…
My blog is called ‘Autistic Kids Grow Up’ because I wanted to track how Harry’s life is set to change over the coming months.
We have already coped with the transition from secondary school to sixth form. The next step for Harry will be another college course to prepare him for independent living.
With a year left to go I wanted to chronicle the steps we have to go through, pass on any tips we pick up along the way and get feedback from others as to what more we can do as parents to facilitate this transition.
