      So I have a preschooler who is being assessed for behaviour issues and possible autism. He already has a speach diagnosis. But how do I know that he is having these sort of issues and it’s not just from starting life surrounded by dv? I know getting these diagnosis if he has them will help a lot with school but I don’t want him being wrongly labelled

      I would say to speak to as many people you can about his issues. From WOmens Aid, to professionals who deal with autism. To other mums. Be open and honest. Hopefully the professionals involved will reassure you. But keep asking, get the answers you need. Research, read educate and most importantly, trust your gut and your own judgement as a mother. You know him best. Don’t be put off or sidelined x sounds like you’re a great mum 😍

      Dear Inneed, it might help you to chat with Betterdays, her sons have similar problems and she is a DV victim as are her sons. X*X

      Art therapy for children, if you can find someone who does this. That reveals so much without words and children can get the right help.
