Hello Everyone,

My name is Audrey and I am a final year at university. I am conducting a project about Technology and Autism in order to be able to create a prototype and a final app product that would benefit adults with Autism.

I would really appreciate if you could take 5 mins to fill it out This will ve very helpful for me! Thank you!

Hello I have not been here for a long time, 

my daughter was diagnosed 2 days ago with high anxiety the clinical phycologist thinks that's what my daughter has. Me and her father have been going to the assessment Appoinments with her asking lots of questions when she was little, she is now 12 years, so it was very hard. Aaliyah was mostly with my mum then as I was working a lot of then.

Looking for a parent group for autistic kids…live in Penege se20.. Anyone out there?

Wed 30 Mar 2016 10:21pm

Hi there

I am new to this but am looking to find parents in a similar position.

We have a little boy Callum who is currentky being diagnosed with ASD. He is only young 3 years but the whole thing is a bit of a rollercoaster and overwelming. We are getting through it bit would love to link up with parents in a similar boat.

We are unsure of school, mainstream/unit, EHC nightmares?!, thinking of ABA.. Loads to talk about/share.

Is there anyone out here who we can link with?


All the best

Hi , Im looking for some advice on helping my son. He is 12 and has Aspergers, he suffers from anxiety and struggles interacting with his peers. He quite often comes home upset after having issues with them. He is convinced that nobody likes him there but i know that is not totally true. Im trying to help him manage his relations at school but im really at a loss! Any help or advice would be appreciated!
