Ella was born 6 weeks early at 5.9lbs. She had Respiratory distress syndrome, premature lung disease and jaundice. She spent her first 4 weeks in hospitals. Her first week in NICU. Her milestones were mildly-moderately delayed in which she was referred to therapists. Her low muscle tone was picked up and we were advised to see a paediatrician. She was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at 5 1/2 years.
Ella enjoyed her primary school years, but it was difficult and overwhelming at the same time. She struggled to sleep, needed a lot of movement in class with breaks and supports, change was always hard, clothing with her sensory issues was a daily struggle and also her anxiety. Learning everything that is harder with autism, like facial expressions and emotions. Ella needed structure and visuals to help her with her daily routines. School was very exhausting. She participating in extra curriculum activities before it became too much. Ella went on medications at a young age to aide sleeping and anxiety.

Highschool she adapted well, but was very challenging. Now at 17 with the help of the NDIS she has a wonderful support team that help her through her highs and lows, executive functioning and living a purposeful life.
