Welcome to members! Come and introduce yourself.

Tue 1 Sep 2015 10:34am

Welcome to the forum!

What’s it all about? As the name suggests, this is a space to talk about autism with others.

You can share your thoughts and experiences, frustrations, joys and anything at all related to autism!

We want this to be a safe and friendly space to chat.

Here you can introduce yourself to the community. You might want to share a hobby or interest or your connection with autism.If you've been a member of the community for a while, you might want to share a top tip or tell us how long you've been a member. 

So I’m Charlotte and I work for Ambitious about Autism. I am passionate about raising awareness and understanding of autism and being ambitious for people with autism. I love to curl up with a good book – fiction and non-fiction. I’m currently reading IQ84 by Murakami.

    Hi everyone. 

    I was prompted to update my password and log in by a friend who found a picture of me on here when she was browsing, so I figured it was time I came back and said hello.

    I can't remember how long it's been since I was last here, but things have changed out of all recognition, 

    I still have 5 kids! One has left uni, no 2 is working, no 3 is in their second year of college, and I now home educate the youngest two after HIghland council left them floundering and unsupported in school, and I ran out of energy to fight a losing battle. I mean, I would have won, but it would have been a hollow victory when there are no suitable high schools in the area for my younger boy and he's not emotionally able to go out of area,

    So, what else? Oh yes, I self-dx as autistic myself, after a lot of realisation, and I now find I understand my reactions to things a whole lot better. And I am launching a career as an author. 

    Still as tired as ever!

    Welcome back. It sounds like you still have your hands full, no wonder you are still tired!

    Let us know how you get on as an author.
