I have a child with ASD, although he is high functioning and on the lower end of the scale (Aspergers), he has presented many challenges, particularly prior to diagnosis. Mrs Babs O’Hara was a constant source of support during my son’s primary school years. She was always approachable, and informative. She never made me feel at fault for his condition and was a hugely supportive influence at a very difficult time. Mrs O’Hara came along to my son’s diagnosis meeting at the hospital and supported me and my husband both inside the observation suite and outside afterwards whilst we were waiting for the Consultant’s diagnosis. Following on from this diagnosis, Mrs O’Hara was and still is, a huge support. She is constantly positive, both of my son’s progress and of us as a family living with the diagnosis.
