Hi I'm Kat, I'm 27 & my husband is Jake. We have a daughter named Jasmine.
She's 6 & was officially diagnosed with ASD last week. We've known for a long time but now it's official & we are hoping to get her IEP back soon. She's in public school as a 1st grader. She had an IEP & an aide in kindergarten but they ended all services for her in March.
I work part time. I recently had an attempted (but failed) brain surgery that left me in the hospital for 3 months & out of work for 4 months. I'm currently looking for a new surgeon so the mass can be removed

1. How many kids do you have?

Just my one little girl. :)

2. How old were they when they first received their diagnosis? 

She was diagnosed at birth. What she has is something called Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, but until all the testing is done, they're simply diagnosing as venous lymphatic malformations. They cover her left arm, neck, back, and left chest cavity.

3. Do they attend a public, private, charter or home school?

She's only 4 months old right now. We want her to be in public school someday, but kids can be mean and if it starts to overwhelm her too bad, we will have no problem with letting her be homeschooled. 

4. Are you a SAHM, WAHM or WOHM?

I'm currently a SAHM, but since moving to a safer neighborhood, I will now have to go back to work. I'm a full time student as well.
