We have a trial day at Emerson today for Beth. I’m feeling quite ill about it all at the moment. I don’t have a good feeling about it after their visit last week. They suggested that maybe she is ‘too autistic’ if she runs off. Well she is autistic, that’s one of the traits of autism after all, in some kids at least. I hope they see the positive side to Beth, the humour and the warmth. It’s been lacking a bit lately, at home and at school. I want my bubbly Beth back. We’ve also got our paediatrician appointment tonight to talk about depression. Hopefully things will be looking up soon.
