Jack's progress during 2016

Tue 18 Oct 2016 10:43am

Hello everyone,

Well it has been a challenge this year, but hopefully by December, I will be half way to my MEng with the Open University, once I pass T804 (2nd attempt) and T805. Next week I start T889 "Problem Solving", what I will be very useful, help me to analyse problems and find ways to solve them.

My main worry is coming up with an idea for the EMA project, related to space/engineering. But once agian it is always different when I start a new module,  get anixous about things, but once I start, it gets easier.

Needs help communicating

Thu 28 Jul 2016 3:35pm

We have a son who is currently 22 months old, we first noticed something was different when he would not respond to his name from a very early age. From early on we noticed he would flap his arms in excitement, particularly when watching TV which he likes to do a lot off!

He started pulling to stand at 14 months took his first steps at 15 months but then nothing till 17 months when he eventually walked.

Autism Blogs

Sat 2 Jul 2016 9:57pm

Hello there everybody.

I'm planning on starting an autism related blog as I'm busting with ideas and really need an outlet. I was wondering if you guys have got any favourite autism blogs that I could check out? obviously i'd like to get ideas and see what is popular but I also want to know that I can put an original bit of writing out in a world flooded with the good, the bad and the very very ugly in terms of information and mis-information.

I'll enjoy sharing some of my ideas with you guys in an effort to make my blog as good as possible if that is ok with you guy?

New to this

Thu 30 Jun 2016 5:15pm

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.

Friendship issue

Mon 20 Jun 2016 1:05pm

Hello to everyone who already knows me , and those who don't!

ive had a very long break from the forums, much much longer than I intended. Lots of things going on with my kids and my personal life, and I felt rather overloaded by it all. I've done a couple of mindfulness courses which have been very valuable. And I've started running again, which has helped me cope.

Jack's bump in the road towards a MEng

Sun 5 Jun 2016 6:35pm

Well everyone, it has been a very busy 5 months, so I haven't found the time to do an update.

Anyway Tuesday I got my EMA for T804 "Finite Element Analysis", my arms were shaking after I saw it was 33%, short of the 40% pass mark. But I'm entitled to re-sit and I'll confirm my registration tomorrow, by the way my OCAS score was 65%.
