Hi everybody,

I'm Cat, media manager at Ambitious about Autism. We are continuing to fight to make sure all children and young people with autism can access the education they deserve through our We Need An Education campaign. To gather new evidence for our campaign we have created two new surveys to find out people’s experiences of the education system. Please help our work by taking part or sharing this survey with others.

Ch4's 'Are You Autistic' prog., AaA Youth Council and Prof.Baron-Cohen

Tue 10 Apr 2018 4:30pm

Hi, I'm a new member.  I had just written a paper called 'Sex, Gender, Class and STEM-subjects vs. Humanities in Constructions of Autism', when I saw the programme 'Are You Autistic?' on Channel 4.  My paper was concerned with the 'New Classic Autism' stereotype that James McGrath had referred to in his book: 'Naming Adult Autism' (2017) and very much involved Prof.

I have an idea

Tue 30 Jan 2018 1:57pm

Hello everyone,

My son is 14 yo and on the autism spectrum, with speech delay.

Because of his limited communication skills, he finds it difficult to make friends, even if he loves people and is very sociable.

It is extremely difficult to make friends, and I know that he would love to meet and play with other children around his age. If there are patents who experience the same dilemma, please get in touch. If there are people who can give advice on the matter, it will bw much appreciated.
