Boyfriends son may be autistic.

Wed 3 Aug 2016 5:10pm


I recently started dating a man who has an 8 year old son and a 12 year old daughter. I have a 10 year old daughter. We have been dating for about 6 months. We have gotten the kids together several times to play. I was concerned because the son is a little rambunctous and his kids play fight (which usually ends up in a real fight). I am somewhat strict on my daughter and would never let her "play" fight. But other than that the kids seem to get along well and they are pretty well mannered.

Help coping with Aspie dissociations

Tue 26 Jul 2016 7:21pm


Several years ago my wife (who is now 30) started presenting episodes of dissociative amnesia.

She wakes up several years in to her past. This can be very confusing and upsetting as she is unaware of her surroundings or our family members.

Some times these episodes can last for several days, with each period of sleep resetting to a different time in her life.

She can go weeks without an episode.

Hi everyone

Haven't been on for a couple of years, things are pretty bad at the moment.

Will go into more detail in another post but has anyone used ABA?

Wondering if doing a short ABA programme over summer hols might help address main problem at the moment (throwing)

Thank you Smile

Mon 11 Jul 2016 10:57am

one way to achieve notoriety, i guess : but a high price for perp - and victim (if the attempt is `successful`)!!

...Mr Sandford, who has Asperger's syndrome, could face up to 30 years in prison...

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.

Asking The Same Questions

Tue 17 May 2016 4:08pm

My 7 year old granddaughter seems to need reassurance all the time. If the family are doing something different like going on a day out or on holiday or even just how many days till she goes back to school she will ask about it repeatedly. She doesn't have a problem with doing different things just seems to need to talk about it. She will go off and play but always comes back to ask about whatever activity is happening next.
