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.

This is a study on behaviour problems and AD/HD symptoms in children and adolescents with ASD.
We would like to hear from parents of children with ASD who are aged between 3 to 17 years. You are still invited to participate even if your child does not have behavioural problems as we can learn a lot from your information on why some children present with such problems and why others do not.

Hello, My name is Haley Cohen. I'm a reporter at the Economist magazine and the sibling of a wonderful little brother on the spectrum. I'm hoping to do a series of articles on autism and would love to interview some parents of individuals with autism. I think I'll likely do three pieces on the following topics: 1) How workplaces can and should adapt to accommodate autistic employees. 2) The high costs of caring for autistic children.

Hi does anyone know of any rhemotology conditions that can be related to/with Autism? or have experienced a condition themselves with their child? The reason I'm looking for this information is due to A blood test that has been taken for chromosomes which has came back and we now have an appointment with a paediatric rhemotologist.
I really don't know what to expect and we have to wait until May!
thanks for reading, take care
Many people discuss the support needed by parents, but what about the support needed by those diagnosed?
My son was recently diagnosed with being on the spectrum; my wife and I punched the air as we thought that this would provide a catalyst for the support our son needs. How wrong we were! Since our sons diagnosis, we are no further forward than we were six years ago. Do we have to continue to raise our son without any support, or direction? What an complete sham this is for any person with a hidden disability and those who care for them.
