Although we have four kids, we often say that we have five — because while every parent puts their children’s needs first, in our house, autism always gets top priority.

Having three children with the condition — Logan (10), Flynn (8) and Sullivan (7) — has been a massive learning curve as before Logan came along, I had no experience of autism at all.
