After a bit of a tricky Monday I’ve come home to my boys and a note in Harry’s planner that said he’d been telling his teaching assistant that “mummy’s always here” Thank you my boy 🥰 Just what I needed. Story of your life xx

Sometimes I love hugging everyone! And sometimes I can't even handle being hugged by my husband. Before my husband hugs me he always gives me either a visual/audio cue that he knows that I know, and then enough time to let me accept the hug, or deny it. Just that little thing means so much to me. It shows that he cares about my bodily autonomy.

Thanks to the media’s stereotyped representation of autistic people, many believe that autism comes with a set of savant abilities attached to it. While this might be true for some autistics, it’s not everyone’s reality and it doesn’t mean they are “less autistic” because of it. I’m naturally good at anything related to visual art; illustration, painting, sculpture, embroidery, lettering, although I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “savant ability” since I need a bit of practice to get there. I certainly learn quicker than most but still isn’t something I can do with a snap of a finger. Don’t spread the idea that autistic people have to be savants to be respected because it’s damaging to those who don’t have any stereotypical skill (like good at math, eidetic memory.) This narrative perpetuates the idea that being autistic is okay, as long as you have savant abilities to “balance” it. Autistics shouldn’t have to have “superpowers” in order to be respected, and they certainly don’t have to prove their value by being special in certain areas. We’re valuable because we’re people. Period.

It’s hard to start a response to this article without telling @thetimes to go fuck themselves, so I won’t bother trying not to.

Are children with special needs not pupils too? Are my boys not worthy of an education just like any other child?

Isn’t the reality that this shambles of a government have consistently underfunded all schools, just like they have so many other services in this country?That the councils are wasting the money they do have and putting the blame elsewhere?

They are trying to deflect any of the blame from themselves to children just like mine. Making out we are a financial burden to the rest of the country. 
It’s not as if they’re even providing the funding to meet the needs of special needs children anyway. 
Last week at our parents meet up, the main topic of conversation was schooling. The fight that families have to go through to get an Educational Health Care Plan (clearly because they don’t want to spend the money) Then the fight once that EHCP is in place to actually get the schools to follow it.

If you want your child to attend a special needs school often there’s not enough places, especially if you’re trying to make the switch from mainstream to special needs. 
Many families are being forced to take their children out of school and being left without a place, having to home school instead. 
So the wait for diagnosis and EHCP’s is too long, there’s not enough schools, there’s not enough places in schools, and the solution is to place the blame at society’s door. Blame our children.

To try and turn the rest of the country against families like mine, just like they’ve done asylum seekers, and anyone on benefits. 
Disgraceful.

A few days ago it was World Mental Health Day and I saw lots of Instagram posts that were so genuine and honest about the struggles of living with mental health issues. l wanted to share a little doodle I did explaining how mental health affects sensory people (and how the two can become quite intertwined to the extent that it’s hard to tell what’s responsible for what feeling, thought, etc). I’ve explained before that my mental health is confusing to me because my issues  can randomly intensify and l also struggle with episodes of depression which can be really debilitating. Obviously everyone’s mental health is very different but I do think it’s important to be supportive to each other both online and in the real world. I do think it’s great that self care is becoming more a ‘thing’ now and it really is important in order to keep functioning in life. I find that my mental health mixed with my sensory issues is always tough to deal with but having a community of neurodiverse and like minded people here on Instagram has really helped me to understand not only myself but to understand how others cope in the big wide world. (Doodle is my own view of mental health and sensory issues and I totally understand that not everyone may agree / relate to what I’ve said and drawn as we all experience things very differently.)

“But but...autism is just genetic!” 😑😑😑 If you or your child is on the spectrum, they probably have heavy metals built up as the latest studies show...they basically all do. Get a hair test done for metals and get your child healthy. Recoveries are happening because autism is a result of toxic saturated environment—aka it is reversible. Wake up to the reality of autism and healing..

Us looking very tired at Bogotá airport this morning around 28 hours into our 33 hour journey! The mountain view put a smile on our face and made our travels a little more bearable.
.
Pleased to say that we’ve now arrived safely in Cusco and have just got back from a slow stroll around the city. We’ve been taking it easy today to acclimatise to the altitude, having gone from less than 150m elevation in Jersey to around 3,400m in Cusco 😳

Feeling dizzy and dehydrated but no sickness or bad headaches yet so hopefully we can avoid that and our bodies adjust soon so that we’re fighting fit for our training trek tomorrow 🤞🏼.
