My life being autistic part 2

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog, today I’ll be continuing to talk about my life being autistic. Once again this part of the story is not explained by me, but it is informed by my mum and this is the story of my life being autistic in her own words.

At home, I was working on with the concentration, how long she could concentrate at a time. At the same time we would go onto trips from the nursery like “teddy bears picnic” to a play area in the park. Arveena would go on the slide, swings and see-saw playing just like any child at her age. We took food from my home and drinks.

In the park there were benches we could sit around and eat talk with the other mums. Arveena would eat and drink with us and if she needed to go to the toilet she would pull my finger and take me towards the toilets. There was one trip to the farm, we fed the newborn lambs with the baby bottles she would run after the ducks like any other child, BUT there was no SPEECH.

At this stage she was about 4-5 yrs old and some people were telling me to teach her some sense while the others said she was dumb and some even said that she was mad or mental. There were two ladies no relation to me who said “don’t worry she will talk and that there was nothing to worry”.

I have never had a problem waking her in the morning, always eager to go school or any trips, always bubbly little girl, but I’m her own world. At home I had no problem with her doing things for herself, but I would keep an eye on her all the time in case she would hurt herself.

This concludes on my life being autistic. Stay tuned for the post which will be my school life and don’t forget to leave a comment below on my blog and spread to word out about my blog too. ???

My life being autistic

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. ???
