I’m a mum to three beautiful girls, one of whom has a diagnosis of PDA – a type of Autism.
This is our journey together, fighting through and looking back on the challenges we have met so far, as well as following our fight to get a diagnosis and support for our delicate family.
My aim in writing this is primarily to keep me sane! I need to channel my energy and focus my thoughts because if I don’t then I feel that I may lose it. Also, I want to help other parents who may be feeling in the same position and to gain their support/guidance for my moments of need too.
Lastly, I am hoping that this blog will help towards highlighting the need for the PDA profile to be added to the official diagnostic manual so that future children out there will be supported and understood. Anxiety is a lonely place.
Thank you for reading.
