Her loves: Christine McGuinness revealed her youngest daughter Felicity, five, developed a stuttering lockout due to lack of social contact

Christine has three children with husband Paddy, 47, and has always been honest about living with autism and how the family cope with their disease

On the lockdown and the kids, she detailed: ‘It really affected their speech They regressed a lot Again, speech doesn’t come naturally to them

‘I spent years taking speech therapy classes with the kids and still do, but they all took a backseat with their speech and communication skills

‘My daughter, Felicity, developed a stutter on the first lockdown, which was never there before It was every word so it was pretty harsh

Opening: The Real Housewives Of Cheshire star, 32, is the mother of Felicity, and twins Leo and Penelope, seven, all with autism, and during an appearance on Loose Women Thursday, she detailed the impact of the pandemic on her children

‘She’s still in speech therapy to get help with this, it’s a little better now that she’s returned to nursery But these are issues that certainly wouldn’t have entered our lives without the global pandemic ‘

She continued: “ It was a roller coaster It started off extremely difficult, for everyone it was a huge shock Our children are autistic and they are struggling with the shock

‘All these differences were suddenly thrown at them, the school was closed, forbidding friends or family from coming, which we did, on weekends we couldn’t go to the park

‘With three kids struggling with change anyway and not really understanding much, it was extremely difficult for them to suddenly change overnight

The severity of stuttering varies from person to person and situation to situation Someone may have periods of stuttering followed by times when they speak relatively fluently

– Developmental stuttering – the most common type of stuttering that occurs in early childhood when speech and language skills are developing rapidly

– Acquired or late stuttering – is relatively rare and occurs in older children and adults as a result of head trauma, stroke, or progressive neurological disease It can also be caused by certain medications, drugs or psychological or emotional trauma

It is not possible to say for sure why a child starts to stutter, but it is not caused by anything the parents have done

Developmental and hereditary factors may play a role, as well as small differences in how well the speech areas of the brain work

‘We got used to this over the summer, they stopped asking out and that’s kind of where we’re at now It’s really sad that they now accept that it’s okay to stay

‘We have spent years and years cheering on our kids, it doesn’t come naturally to them, to go socialize, hang out to busy places and new places like play centers – they can be pretty scary – it took them years to do this happily

‘Now they don’t even ask about it anymore it’s like it doesn’t exist anymore It’s pretty sad I think if / when things get back to normal we’re going to have to start over with it all We’re really going to have to get their trust back because the anxiety is through the roof

‘For example, I pulled up to the gas station, took my son with me, and someone walked by and he literally threw himself behind that person because he was so petrified by someone walking near him It’s sad that this is today’s reality ‘

Despite the tough times Christine gushed: ‘We had some magical and magical times And overall they are happy, they are healthy and they are doing absolutely amazing and I love them very much and I am very proud ‘

Speaking about homeschooling, she said: ‘I feel for everyone who homeschooled This is not suitable for children with additional needs, it really is not Our children are very black and white, school is school and home is home

‘We can run an art class and PE, fun things, but actual homeschooling sitting in front of a computer it’s not fair I don’t think it’s fun for the kids we try to bring them back full time

‘They started doing a couple of hours and we’re building it full time Again it’s just a long, very slow process for our kids to rebuild it Hope next week they return to full time ‘

Her appearance comes after it was reported that Christine and Paddy are set to reveal the challenges of raising children with autism in a new BBC documentary, Autism And Our Family

Christine has always been open about the ups and downs of her children in life with autism and it is now said that the family will document these moments

The one-off documentary, airing this year, will follow the couple as they share their story with viewers and seek answers about their children’s autism diagnosis

He will also follow them during their meetings with other parents, pediatricians and experts in child development to learn more about intellectual disability.

Christine often shares her experiences with her children on social networks and advises and accompanies parents in the same boat

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with autism have problems with social, emotional, and communication skills that typically develop before the age of three and last a person’s life
