I was wondering if anybody has come across this idea? or does anybody know of anything of the like?
I'm considering the idea but just looking for some feedback really. Essentially it would be a space/area/hall/big room that parents could go to for a chat, brew or food. My idea would be to have resources, publications and such available for parents to explore if they choose, with the addition that the 2 people running it are professional and parent. But possibly also relaxation type equipment.
Hi. Previously posted about trying to get a diagnosis for my youngest son, now both he and his older brother have a diagnosis of ASD. They were diagnosed quite early, age 3 & age 2 for the youngest son & are both extremely different.
My son is going through assessment for autism again age 9. He was assessed at 2 and 5 and now we are repeating the process again.
May two they said there was not enough evidence and he may grow out of some behaviours so they would look again at 5.
At 5 they said not enough evidence to confirm ASD but then at 7 he stared to fall apart at school and they decided to repeat the process again. We are two years down the line and don’t seem much further on.
I am a Psychology student who is eager to further my knowledge and career in autism. I'm currently supporting a teenager with autism and I also work as a support worker with people with disabilities.
I am currently working on my dissertation which will look at the experiences of adults with autism in employment. (This research has Ethical approval from my university).
There's limited research on work experience among individuals with autism. So, please if you would like to know more about my research or take part, please feel free to contact me!
I'm Elly and I'm a Psychology student at the University of East London.
I also have a sibling with autism.
About the research:
My son is 5 and is still learning to talk. I am keen to find a good music therapust and wondered if anyone could recommend. Seen some good ones in highgate/Finchley Road but we are in Enfield so slightly far out.
Thanks in advance..

james sinclair was on the radio pointing out that some autistic people are discombobulated by applause.
here's his web site - autistic and unapologetic :
personally it doesn't bother me much.
