Parents of Autistic children are often told that in order to access support services, you need to base your story on your child’s worst day. I have heard this many times. I have often had applications for services and support declined because I didn’t tell them about my son’s worst days.

I’ve shared this story with two friends today, but I think it’s a story worth telling everyone. Some details will be left out because parts of it are not my story to tell. I have a younger half-sister (my mother’s child, not my father’s child), and I won’t tell that part of the story for her.
