My mom is soooo up my ass about filing as common law with SO. She keeps telling me I'll get fucked over haaaaard if they ever find out we live together lol. But I filed as single this year again and so did he, but SO ended up owing 300$ which we weren't impressed about what so ever lol.

Yay for the 1 year! I just went off work last week and filed for unemployment on Sunday. Still need to get my ROE's in to Service Canada but hopefully the process doesn't take very long.

SPD isn't considered a medical diagnosis from a doctor but from an OT here. This is something we are looking into at our autism support group. I would suggest that she go to a local Rotary (Pathways for children)center and get an appointment with a qualified OT for said diagnosis. I haven't had to pay anything at all for my son's testing, diagnosis or even therapy (which he recieves 30 hours a week )through Themes Valley children center. This doesn't sound right.

It took 4 weeks to get my first mat leave cheque. But I guess it's because I finished work on a Sunday? Opposed to Friday, then it only would of been a 2 week wait I guess
I don't know how accurate that is!



I'm also waiting on my ROE I took 12 weeks sick time before my mat leave this time. Hopefully it's only a 2 week wait this time!

Hmm I'm really hoping I don't need to wait a month to get my first cheque. It won't be much cause I only work PT at KFC and I only work for extra spending money for myself and to get out of the house lol, but it's still better than nothing :)



I should've taken that sick leave too. I was offered a note from my Dr but refused (my hip was realllly bad).

Right, i suggested to do an auction and sell things and whatnot to her, but she was just wondering if there were resources out there she could contact.. i think a few other mommies on that page helped her with some references... im not sure... Ive never had the issue of finding my son doctors or help.. so i was no help to her (that and im in the US not Canada)

She could call Thames Valley Children Center in London Ontario-they are a huge centre with many branches and can help with anything including funding-which I still don't understand since you don't need anything other than an asd diagnosis to get him placed in a special class. Mostly kids here are integrated and have aides and depending on the needs a shared aide or a general helper-if her kid is severe enough or behavioral in any way she just needs to talk to the school board and ask for a transfer. Seriously though we (Canadians) get taxed up the ass but we have to pay almost nothing out of pocket for medical or mental ilness help. My kid has massive sensory issues (like the 5 changes of clothes today and the 28 times he took off his pants) but I'm in no need to get him a diagnosis of SPD unless they refuse him the sensory room at school (when he goes)-there is no need.

I refused last time too but this time I was like hell yes! Plus I'm home with my son. I would of been bored home by myself last time. I took 1 month off early and it felt like an eternity. But I guess it's still better than work sometimes!



I hope you get yours sooner than 4 weeks! the average is 2 - 4 so you know it will be sometime in that time frame :) and any little bit counts! heh
