If you're struggling in these uncertain times with your emotions, imagine how your austic child is feeling!  Dawn and Keith talk about some really great initiatives that have helped their son Aston put some structure back into his routine so that they can carry on but they are very aware that they have to take care of themselves so that they can continue to support Aston.
