We heard it all the time she'll be fine, what are you worried about? Just give her time. But I knew Hayley was different she was our third child and I knew at very early age something wasn't right. She had reflux and would stream in pain and hardly sleep. Hayley didn't hit any of her milestones so by 12 months it became more evident.  Lack of response to our voices she would scream seeing unfamiliar faces, I couldn't use the vacume cleaner without her screaming the house down. Going shopping was impossible I felt like I was in jail for a long time couldn't imagine how Hayley was feeling. So I had to be strong and do what my heart was telling me to do it would have been so much easier to pretend that there was nothing wrong, trust me their were times that we both desperately wanted that.. But Hayley needed us, we were determined to do every single thing in our power to help our little girl.           Hayley was diagnosed with Autism spectrum Disorder at 20 months of age the relief I felt with the diagnosis. I can now relax and start helping her. Hayley is now nearly 3 she has come such a long way I'm so grateful. We have worked with her every single day taking her out as much as she didn't like it I was persistent park everyday get her use to other people it took a while but we got there! We do therapy speech and ESDM 3 times a week that has helped so much.i can't say enough how important early intervention is and how it has helped Hayley and our family.  If you know in your gut that there is something different going on with your child listen to that voice.  I have met so many amazing people along the way we all help each other I no longer feel alone .  The good news for 2015 is Hayley has been offered a place at Irabina for a 12 month intensive early iintervention there will be a specialized team helping the kids it's very expensive but as a mother I will do everything I can to give her the opportunity in life that will make a difference. I'm going to raise some money for her to go towards the fees I'm going to walk/run a thon 28 km it's the Two bay trail from Arthurs seat to Cape Schenck please feel free to join me or sponsor me! The date will be set soon! Please share this page
