Parents with kids diagnosed with mild autism/learning disabilities
Just recently my almost 5 year old was diagnosed with mild autism. i knew somting was wrong was he was 18 months old, but was in deniel and thought it was just a phase and would get better ( me being first time mum and not being around kids for a very long time, wasnt sure what was typical and atypical development). im still not sure if he really has autism, he has very been very social and has a good sense of humor. His struggles with writing ( behind in fine motor skills) and also his attention span is very low, which has impacted his academics. We enrolled him in tutoring class, but he now hates even trying or making any attempt. I’m so at loss, if he will ever grt a job or live independently in future..i know im a bit overthinking , but just dont have a first hand experience growing up or met any kids on the spectrum.
Update - wondering any teaching strategies worked for you? Did you guys hire any tutors specialized in learning disability to help kids?
