My fear is that in a few years I won’t be physically or mentally able to do this anymore. At nine years old there is kicking, biting and headbutting.” 

That’s a quote from our next guest – single mother Avlyn McKeown whose identical autistic nine-year-old triplets - Alex, Kyle and Rian - are all non-verbal and require 24-hour care.

Later in the show we spoke to Lorraine Dempsey Spokesperson for the Special Needs Parents Association.
