Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog, today I’ll be talking about the beginning of my life being autistic. This part of the story is not explained by me, but it is described by my mum and this is the story of my autistic life in her words.
In the beginning everything seemed normal. She was running around by 8-9 months, knew her numbers and alphabet by 18 months, then I started to noticed that she was not talking, went to see the Drs and he said that nothing’s wrong.
By 2 1/2 yrs old she went to the playgroup everything was normal, but no speech had developed. She went to a normal nursery school around 4-5 yrs old still no speech. Then the teachers in the nursery had noticed the same thing no speech they suggested me to take her to a special needs school. So we went to special needs school around the age of 6 1/2 yrs the speech started to come along.
The teachers did come to do some number work adding, my daughter did not understand anything. So the head teacher said we go and take her to the special Dr who deals with children in her situation. The special Dr told us that she has mild autism and at the same time my daughter was confused with who, what, where, why and when.
Before going to special needs school, at home she was like a normal 2-3 yrs old she played with my pots, taking everything out of my cupboards, she loved playing with water, turning pots upside down, stand on them and give them and give the dolls a bath, dry them up with a towel, watching children’s programmes and playing with her brother.
We joined a group and used to go swimming every week, the first week she just sat at the edge and cried, she would not let go of me. The following weeks she went in the water and she loved it, she learned to swim really well.
Her concentration was there, we did small puzzles at home, played games to just to see her concentration and learn things but still there is no SPEECH.
This concludes on my life being autistic, sorry about being too long. Stay tuned for the post and don’t forget to leave a comment below on my blog and spread to word out about my blog too. ???
