A Request Please (LATEST POSTS UNDER THIS ONE)





Some of you will know my son Daniel has Aspbergers Syndrome (which was diagnosed only 2 yrs ago). Aspergers is mild Autism where they are unable to socialise and interact socially, making everyday life quite difficult for them. Because of this we have had a lengthy battle with out local education authority to get Daniel statemented and into a new school as class sizes and lack of help actually stopped Daniel from progressing and took its toll. It took over a year but we have won so far and after much stress and a very expensive solicitor,Daniel started a new school in September, again mainstream but with a satalite unit just for ASD children. A nice class size of 6 pupils and 121 when he needs it. Because of his condition he doesn't have birthday parties as he hasn't a great circle of friends so last year some were kind enough to send Daniel a birthday card. I saved them all and then wrapped up in a box for him to open and he absolutely loved it. Above is a picture of what he received last year. I am asking if any of you would like to send Daniel a card. Daniel does craft with me and is actually quite good and I know another surprise like last year would really put a smile on his face. He will be 11 yrs old on the 7th November and I know how much he appreciates the work we put into our crafting. My email is on my profile or leave a comment and I'll get back to you, but I hope you can understand why I'm asking and not a desperate attempt to break any records.
Thanks for Reading

Mada said...

Dear Claire,

First of all, Thank You! for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.

Secondly...

I will definitely send a card (or two) to your little darling. He's such an adorable kid and you're one fantastic Mum.
It will be a real pleasure to craft for Daniel. Does he have any special favourites? Cars, animals, pirates, planes?
Any little 'hint' will help us make a personalized card for him.

My email is mada.vulpescu at gmail.com (also available on my blog)

Please send me your address so I can post it ASAP - the Romanian Post is a bit lazy and it might take 10-12 days for a card to make it to UK.

Many hugs,
Mada

Hi Claire.
I'd love to do a card for Daniel.
I have a Son of 22 also with Asperger's. He was diagonosed when he was 10 after 5 years of fighting tooth and nail for him to be statemented.
My Son has the same problems as Daniel with social interaction and only has one or two friends but he is a happy loving boy who just loves life and excels at college.
If you ever need to chat, give me a shout.
Love Angie..xx..

I will send a card to Daniel. I too have an autistic child. He is 11 too and high functioning with the diagnosis of PDD...his pic is up on my blog.

It is wonderful that you thought of this for him. Peer interaction is always so difficult.

Take care,
Bela

Barbara Hagerty said...

What a wonderful mom you are!! I would be honored to make a card for Daniel!! Please let me know where to send it, and maybe give me an idea of what he likes?? Thanks for the opportunity!!

Mar G said...

Hi Claire - I found your blog & read about Daniel on Sarah's blog (Sparkle Cards).
What a lovely gift idea to help celebrate Daniel's 11th birthday.
I totally understand what you have gone through in order to make sure Daniel's needs are met & that he is educated & supported in a way he understands. Our son Rory (9) has severe Dyslexia & associated difficulties which presents him with many challenges & issues especially with learning & daily life.
We ended up moving Rory to a smaller primary school here in Scotland 2 years ago. School for Rory before then had been very traumatic & it had gotten to the stage where he couldn't cope with attending!
We found ourselves challenging our LEA too & although we didn't require a solicitor, we did end up however going down the official complaints route.
Challenging the system has been a HUGE learning curve for us as a family!
Moving Rory was the best move we ever made as he is now happy to go to school. He is being educated in a way he understands & supported in a way he deserves!
Please e-mail your address so I can send Daniel's card - Tc Mar x

weewiccababe said...

Hi Claire,
My friend (Mar G, a couple of posts up) sent me the link to yur blog. I think this is a wonderful idea.
My son has been diagnosed with mild autistic spectrum disorder - tending more towards the aspergers end of the spectrum and has social difficulties too so I completely understand how difficult this can make life - not only for them but as a parent too.
you can contact me through my blog or you may like to have a wee look at the website we started up nearly 3 years ago - its a support and information forum for parents and carers of children with additional needs. (we also have a daughter with a congenital condition) the addy for it is www.extra-special-parents.org
you are very welcome to join it - a problem shared...
anyway, good luck and get in touch so that I know where to send his card

I hope he LOVES his special surprises tomorrow and that you all have a great day! bx
