About Me


Hi I’m Clair, welcome to my blog about family life with an autistic child.

It is a heartfelt and at times humorous account of my family and what it can be like when one of your children appears to have arrived without any instructions!

There are so many swings and roundabouts with bringing up an autistic child and it can be very isolating. I hope to share my experiences, the highs and the lows and the way that I cope and stay sane!

For those of you out there in the same situation celebrate the child that you have and try not to grieve for the child that you never had……..Hope you enjoy.
