Son has started reception without formal support

Sun 17 Sep 2017 9:24am

Hi there,

I am new to the site. My son has just turned 4 and is settling into reception class. We are at the start of a long process of requesting an EHCP for him as he struggled in his nursery year. He needs constant support as cannot cope with alot of what's expected from him at this stage. Limited speech and sensory overload are two of the long list of challenges he faces on a daily basis. 

I just wondered if there were any parents out there dealing with the same difficult times or have been through this process.

dinosaur alert- charlie edwards - asperger's boy outdinos natural history museum.

Tue 1 Aug 2017 8:52am

A 10-year-old boy has outsmarted dinosaur boffins at the Natural History Museum by pointing out a mistake on a label.

Dinosaur fan Charlie Edwards noticed the outline of the four-legged Protoceratops was labelled as an Oviraptor – a dinosaur with a beak that walked on its hind legs....

nai - welsh autism charity - gethin jones

Tue 25 Jul 2017 9:15am

...My only sibling, my sister Mererid, who’s 40 and a paediatric physiotherapist, has two children – Alby, aged ten, and Lenny, seven. They’re the most special people in my life. Alby is autistic which means he’s different, that’s all, and my best friend Sion also has an autistic nephew, Twm.

About two years ago we set up the charity Nai – the Welsh word for nephew – to help parents of autistic children.

Mererid’s such a Strictly fan that when I was on it in 2007 she used to dress Alby in a sparkly outfit to match mine each Saturday...

Hello all,

I said I would post agian after my A-level maths results. But after watching Disney's "Cars 3" I came to a sense of inpsiration and realisation. Just because I dropped out of Hertford and Cranfield, does not mean I threw away my only chances to beocme an astronaut.

Books About Autism for 6yr Old

Wed 5 Jul 2017 7:31am

I'm looking for books that explain autism to autistic children. My son is six years old. Any recommendations?

Also resources for siblings will be useful too (although his brother is only three so not actively looking in to this yet).

Video links/recommendations would also be welcome. 

Thanks x
