I am mum to three beautiful children – a gorgeous cheeky and bouncy 3 year old ( A), a vibrant and energy filled 5 year old on the autism spectrum (here known as “M”) who loves trains, trains and more trains, a sweet and determined 8 year old (here known as S) who loves making up games, reading books and helping mum make muffins. He also has athetoid/ataxic cerebral palsy (CP) as a result of a birth injury. CP is the nothing but everything in our happy busy family as we learn about the condition, seek out alternative therapies (from point percussion to conductive education to osteopathy and beyond…) and watch our three gorgeous boys blossom.
Before motherhood, I was a teacher and still teach English online. I have no desire to return to secondary school teaching though. I think I’ll be ready to tackle teenagers again when it’s time to deal with my own teenaged boys!
