Getting your children to and from your car to the house while juggling shopping, keys and other items can be difficult at the best of times.
For parents of children with mobility difficulties this is even more of a challenge.
Stacey Travis, 31, said that she now has to reconsider leaving her home in the car after 2pm for fear of not being able to park close enough to her home to get her daughter home safely.
Her daughter, Amber, also has autism and sensory processing disorder which makes journeys even more difficult.
Now, to help make thing's easier, Stacey is hoping to have a drive way built in her front garden.

Stacey's friend, Georgia Rose Leeder, started an online funding page to help the family pay Norfolk county council £1357.83, the cost to install a drop kerb outside the home.
Georgia said: 'Unfortunately due to the extent of care Amber needs, her mum can't work and is therefore on a low income.

'Not only would this improvement give Amber a better quality of life, it will keep her safe from harm. Amber is getting stronger everyday, and really needs this work carried out soon.'
She added: 'She needs support getting in and out of the car, and safely into the family home.
'As you can imagine not being able to park close to the family home is very difficult for her mother and her two children.'
The money needed to turn the front garden into a driveway is being covered by Great Yarmouth borough council.
Stacey, 31, said her family moved into the specially adapted house last year and did not want to have to move.
The mother-of-two, who lives in Edinburgh Close, Caister said she wanted to thank county councillor Jonathan Childs who has helped support Stacey with getting the work arranged.
The Little Explorers nursery in Main Road, Fleggburgh are holding a fun day on Wednesday, August 24 to help raise funds from 2-4pm.
