Much of this *feels* familiar to me as the mother of a special needs child. (He's got an autism diagnosis, though it seems closer to PDD-NOS, and definitely a lack of coordination, difficulty following instructions, social anxiety...nothing other than ASD diagnosed at this point.) It IS like walking a tightrope--balancing humoring the child and just getting on with things--oh yes, I feel that one daily.

It really is different from having a 'neurotypical' child--now that I do have one (daughter, age 3) these differences are driven home harder.
