Discussing Autism In The Classroom And Questions Afterwards

Sun 29 Jan 2017 7:26pm

Hi, my son is dyspraxic and autsitic. He is in year 5 (age 9) and (finally!) attending a lovely primary school with an amazing and supportve teacher. Next week, along with the Local Authority Autism Advisory Teacher, he is going to do a presentation to his classmates about "his autism." He's really excited about doing it and we all see this as a very important and positive step towards acceptance and understanding for him and others. The teacher has asked what she should do with inquisitive parents?

Hello all, 

I'm Gabriella and I work at Ambitious about Autism. I thought you might be interested to read a daily summary of autism in the media. I'll post in this thread most Monday-Fridays.

iPad obsession

Sat 17 Dec 2016 4:50pm

Hi, I have 3 children and my middle child is a boy aged six who has recently been diagnosed with level 1 autism. He had been excluded from school for violent outbursts and a few weeks before Christmas he had his hours reduced to 8.45 - 10am. It became increasingly difficult to get him to go at all and all he wants to do is watch YouTube minecraft videos on his iPad. I told this to the headmaster who said without being condescending take it off of him. Your the adult. Not helpful advice but I tried that evening. And my son didn't stop screaming kicking, biting, spitting and throwing things.

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.
