‘Hello! Its lovely to have you here! My name is Sophie, I’m 27 and I work for our amazing NHS. I live in Cheshire with my wonderful family, my husband and two sons age 5 and 2. My eldest Son Jacob was diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder in December 2019. Like many special educational needs parents our story is long and unique but we now finally have a diagnosis. We knew even before it was confirmed that he was autistic and myself and my husband had already accepted that this was the case before we heard the words and so had all of our wonderful family. So when we had the final meeting in December and Autistic Spectrum Disorder was diagnosed it didn’t become a label but a diagnosis that would give him the support he needs to reach his full potential, and my love you will!
