New Year - New Career; What is your experience of Careers Advice?

Wed 21 Dec 2016 9:46am

Hi all 

As we approach the new year and resolutions begin to be formed, I am starting work on planning careers education for children and young people with autism; this includes resources for those with little or no communication. 

I call on you to help me by answering some questions on your experiences please! If you wish to, please email me direct with your responses on ccaccavone@ambitiousaboutautism.org.uk

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.

Can you be too autistic for a Autism Special school?

Sat 1 Oct 2016 1:54pm

Hi All

After much deliberation and researching of schools we have expressed a parental preference for my niece M to leave the mainstream school she is attending (with support of a TA) and to attend an Autism special school in the neighbouring LA.

All was going well, our LA agreed to make the referral and fund the place, we visited the school and the teacher was supportive and agreed M would fit in well there. Then it came to the schools admission panel who have said no as she is 'not at the right level'.

How to approach the school?

Tue 13 Sep 2016 9:45pm

My son is 5 year old, going to mainstream school in year 1. He was diagnosed with ASD when he was 2.5 years old. He has mild to severe difficulties with sensory, attention, communications and interacting with others, he also doesn't eat or drink well and needs to be supported for both eating and drinking.
