I have a teenage daughter with autism and dyslexia and I'm struggling to cope.

I am hoping to find some advise or support. I have a teenage daughter with autism and dyslexia and I'm struggling to cope. We just moved house, and it's tipped my daughter's touching issues, literal understanding and fear of changes over the edge.

    Thanks Steve, I have read the info, so much is part of daily life, I guess I'm hoping maybe a parent in a similar situation as me, having moved house, in our case, having been given a house to be able to get away from neighbourhood harassment, might be able to offer some insight. I suppose just knowing it will get better would help right now. Thanks for answering and offering help Steve 🤗

    Gosh, please don't apologise Steve, no need to at all, I'm very grateful for your help. Your second link is very helpful, and led me to find quite a lot of useful info. Things reached crisis point over the last few hours, but thankfully I reached out to get help and my mental health worker finally realized we are not doing ok. She's due to visit in the morning, 9 am, and will be hopefully getting through to the right people to help my daughter's, I have another daughter needing support after an attempted overdose a month ago, as well as my autistic daughter, who is also suicidal currently, and also helping me in the process. So, as you can see, we are in a bit of a mess right now. Thank you again for your help Steve, it helped so very much 🤗
