Although I joined the forum some time ago, I've not posted anything yet so will just introduce myself for now.
I'm Lori and I'm mum to two sons who both have special issues. My older son is fourteen and recently diagnosed inattentive-only adhd in addition to a variety of other diagnoses, mostly related to anxiety. My younger son is nearly ten and was diagnosed asd about five years ago. Quality of life really improved after diagnosis for my younger one but we still have the ups and downs of life on the spectrum. My boys are both natural learners and have been homeschooling for the last two and a half years. It's also made a huge improvement for learning and for anxiety issues for both.
