Hi 👋 my son and I live in Newcastle, England, my son is 4 and has "severe learning difficulties" we have not yet had a diagnosis! However we are pretty sure it's ADHD although no one will actually say! My son is still in nappies he does not speak words only sounds he runs everywhere and will not sit god more than a few seconds he won't stay at an activity for more than a few seconds either he's in a mainstream nursery but has been put in the 2 year old room as he is too disruptive for his own age class, he is due to start reception in September but we don't have a school as yet as I am fighting to get him into a special school, there are so many processes and things to do before we can even visit or apply to one!! Is anybody else having the same problem with a) getting a diagnosis of some sort b) getting appropriate schooling ? I am a lone parent I'm not in the best of health and my son is getting bigger and stronger by the day and I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to control his meltdowns as he becomes violent i.e. Nipping , head butting, scratching and throwing things he also grabs the cats!
I'm at a loose end 🙁
