Default Re: Surgery and autism anyone?? Another newbie mum

Hello Sharley Bear,

I am a newbie myself, so I'm not particularly knowledgable about scoliosis, but I can offer my support from one mum to another.

First of all, I'm sorry that you are going through this, it's a tough journey. My daughter does not have autism, but I happen to work with kids and so have some appreciation of the additional challenges you face.

Does your daughter have case management services at all? Or does she receive services through the NDIS? If so, speaking with a Linker (or whatever the terminology is in your state) might be worthwhile to see what sort of support you can muster (for her and for you). Try to take life a day at a time and look after yourself.

All the best,
