I'm really proud of our little girl, Sasha. Despite her autism and the struggles she faces, she is still generally a happy, polite and curious child. Whilst we haven't really spoken directly with her about her autism, it's not a secret and is discussed in our house quite openly. She is just not quite at the stage where she would fully understand the condition and its implications. Recently though, I've noticed a change in her. She is definitely maturing and becoming more aware of her own struggles. She tries hard to keep her 'upsets' under control and seems to now understand how some situations are not good for her.
