This is Fraser (7) and Georgia (3) both diagnosed with autism .
Fraser was diagnosed at 2 and couldnt speak until 5 , he attends a sen school and has come on leaps.and bounds! We now cannot stop.him.talking , he loves space and Disney princesses . He is very bright but struggles with emotions and social interaction .
Georgia was diagnosed just a few months ago , her speech is delayed but is coming on wonderfully . Georgia can speak more than Fraser at her age and so isnt quite as frustrated , however Georgia has significantly more sensory issues around noise and organisation.
They both love routines and need structure which we have in our day to day life . Fraser never acknowledged Georgia until she was 7 months and we worried , but now at 7 and 3 they are inseparable and I cant tell you the joy that brings us
