Boyfriends son may be autistic.

Boyfriends son may be autistic.

Wed 03 Aug 2016 5:10pm

Hi,

I recently started dating a man who has an 8 year old son and a 12 year old daughter. I have a 10 year old daughter. We have been dating for about 6 months. We have gotten the kids together several times to play. I was concerned because the son is a little rambunctous and his kids play fight (which usually ends up in a real fight). I am somewhat strict on my daughter and would never let her "play" fight. But other than that the kids seem to get along well and they are pretty well...

Hi I like to introduce my self I'm Helen and I'm here to find out information and to talk to people who may have experience with an autistic child. My son Isaac is 2.5 years old and has autism I'm a mum of 4 and I have never dealt with something like this. I'm trying to get a diagnosis for Isaac but the system is so slow and I don't know where I'm upto and where it will all lead. If anybody is willing to talk to me I would appreciate it thanks.

We've been busy collecting recommendations from families about autism friendly places and saving them here:

Sensory toys and products in the UK market

Mon 22 Aug 2016 2:29pm

Hi, my name is Veronika.

I am conducting the research about the toys and products in UK market for children and young people with ASD.
I have noticed that parents struggling to find an appropriate toy for their children, therefore I want to learn how difficult it is and what is the reason.

I will really appreciate if you can complete my short survey which will take only couple of minutes.
Any additional comments are highly appreciated.
