Even his phone fell silent

Anthony walks in Scotland

Our eleven year old son with ASD is always on maximum volume. His whole being is set up to move about and make noise. He is constantly balancing his sensory system and it's just part of ADHD to move around constantly even on his meds. His diagnoses means he also has difficulty focussing, listening to instructions and remaining on task. But on Remembrance Sunday this year he once again was completely silent - and even put down his mobile phone.

Sleep is extremely precious in our household. Estimates say between 50% and 90% of autistic people have some sleeping difficulties, whether that's falling asleep, staying asleep or sleeping at the wrong time. Two out of our three kids are autistic and have a variety of associated challenges, including sleeping difficulties.  One of our kids has even been to the sleep neurology team at Evelina's Children's hospital to try and help.
