Autism and Parties, If you have a child with Autism then I guess you know they never get invites for parties, but this was different we went to a party of my friends kids from when we lived in Hong Kong, but it was so nice, as I saw Kai interact a lot I was so very happy to see this. the pic is of Kai on a match attack card made by my friend. Kai in his Fulham football kit from Active Autism he got when he went to a Fulham game. his very happy to play, kai is usually alone but today he was running around and seemed to make friends. I am so happy, its a shame we cannot see my friends kids more often as they live far away from us. Hopefully were all meet again in July if not before. Its a shame kids with autism don’t get to go to more parties. I guess its so hard to make friends at school. people just don’t understand but Kai is a sweet boy once you get to know him.
Yesterday we went to football Kai has not been for a while as he had a fit the other day and was in hospital, he sometimes has these when his temperature is very high. At football Kais coach gave him two tickets to see Fulham play Blackburn rovers on Tuesday. this was very nice of them we have now seen quite a few games for free due to this. it was a nice day about 18c so after football we went to the park and played some games and they have some skate balance obstacles there that we played on these are good for balance’,’Kai and football with Active Autsim.
Kai is quite a sweet boy he needs a lot of help daily, but his nice and he tries to do the right thing. It is quite hard work when Kai has his schedule broken, like holidays from school or when social skills is not on or Football. Kai does his football with Fulham footballs Active Autism, its really nice they do tournaments once a month and Kai is happy there. When his schedule is broken Kai finds it hard to do what his told. As he still needs to try and go to football or some where, even now we moved from Singapore two years ago but he still dresses in his Singapore football kit on Sundays. Ted his brother tries to help him as much as he can which is nice but we feel it puts pressure on ted so try not to ask him to do to many things. I am glad Kai does have his brother though as I really wonder what will happen to him one day when we are gone.
Hi I’m Terry and I’m the father to Kai and Ted Jago, Kai is 9 and Ted is 8 years old. Kai has Autism. He is a Sweet child but has his melt downs I hope to try to show my experiences of bringing up a child with autism with also having learning difficulties myself. Looking after kids is tough and you don’t always know if your doing the right thing and it makes you tired. looking after children with autism is really tiring and really takes it out of you. but I thought I would share my experiences. I work in IT but I’m also a full time parent with my wife Hiroko. Bringing up a child without learning difficulties is hard enough but bringing up one with learning difficulties is really tough. you are always worried when the school will call next asking you why your child is tired why your child hit another kid. why is your child drawing skulls and death? These are some of the things we have been asked. how about you? not looking forward to when kids have to go back to school as the routine has changed and now they think they don’t need to go to school. not looking forward to the holiday as they keep asking you is there school Monday.
