I’ve been a special needs parent for roughly half of my life. I’m so used to the challenges that I face on a daily basis, that I don’t always remember that they are there.
Sometimes you can get so used to something that you simply don’t know anything else.
Over the years I’ve become quite acclimated with Autism but ADHD is something relatively new for me. It’s been over a year since both Elliott and Emmett were diagnosed officially with ADHD.
There are many overlapping symptoms and it’s sometimes really difficult to tease the two apart.
I honestly don’t know which is more challenging… They’re both exhausting for me as a parent and they’re impacting my kids daily life, so neither are easy for them either…..
What’s your experience been with Autism, ADHD or both? Just looking for some insights. 😀
