"Being in a room of professionals getting a diagnosis for a child is daunting. We were told Autism nothing more, nothing else Autism and handed an information booklet and basically told get on with it! This is the point you walk about in a daze scouring the internet for all the information you can find. But it doesn't help!
It's a lonely place thinking you're the only person dealing with this not to mention how are you to help your child who's going through it and will for the rest of their life. After speaking to a friend about what has happened they mentioned Achievement Bute.
When I contacted them the staff were so helpful and welcoming. They helped us. We were helped with everything from meltdowns to support in school meetings. Now we are entering the mentoring program which was set up by the help through the counselling service to help my child with important tasks to help for future independence. I myself am part of the parent support group speaking and helping other parents who have or going through the same process I have. We are all in it together!
Without the help and support from Achievement Bute I dread to think how these last few years could have been."
