Hi, wondering if anyone can offer some advice.

My son has had a fair bit of death in his life, his Great Uncle, Great Grandfather and his Nan's dog all died within close proximit.  My son was 4 and took it all in and has accepted it.

Boyfriends son may be autistic.

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.

Does your child often experience low moods, sleep problems, gastrointestinal issues or challenging behaviours?

My name is Hannah Browne, and I am a masters student in the National University of Ireland, Galway, under the supervision of Arlene Mannion and Dr. Geraldine Leader.  We are looking for parents of children and adolescents with ASD aged 2 to 18 years that experience any of the above symptoms to take part in a study.

Hi there,

My son, who is 7 years old and is Aspergers, has developed an issue around food/eating over the last couple of weeks. It was triggered by a crumb going down the wrong way, getting worried about choking, and has now developed into what appears to be some kind of eating disorder.

Autism and Epilepsy Challenges

Wed 9 Mar 2016 4:10pm

My name is Katie Kennedy and I am a final year Psychology student at the National University of Ireland, Galway. I am interested in finding out about the challenges posed by the combination of Autism and Epilepsy.

If your child does not have Epilepsy I would still be very interested in your responses as they can tell us a lot about the specific difficulties Epilepsy presents separate to those already produced by Autism.

Fluoride Toothpaste

Sat 27 Feb 2016 12:23pm
A bit of an odd one, but my son is now 13 and still using kids fruit flavoured toothpaste. He really needs to move on to adult fluoride toothpaste but he won't use anything with mint flavour. Has anyone come across adult fluoride toothpaste which has other flavours? We've been looking online but can't find anything. Thanks Smile
