kaylee rogers - hallelujah

Wed 28 Dec 2016 11:01am

The voice of a 10-year-old girl from Co Down is being heard around the world after her version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah took the internet by storm.

Kaylee Rodgers has autism and ADHD, but has been growing in confidence with every performance after starting to sing at the age of just three.

The little girl, from Donaghadee, is a pupil at Killard House Special School and it was a video of the school choir’s version of Hallelujah that attracted more than 100,000 views.

Newly diagnosed partner - where to start with support

Thu 27 Oct 2016 7:53pm

My husband was given an asd diagnosis this summer and the initial shock has worn off and I'm turning my thoughts to how we now get support.
So questions -
1. We are on a low income but due to asd hubby has limited work experience / NI contributions. Where do we even start for government financial support?

Motivating your child with Aspergers Syndrome

Sun 8 May 2016 4:02pm

Hi

 

I was just looking around the net today and came across this interesting link.  I've signed up to the Webinar that's coming up on 10th May so will try to remember to post more after that.  Having an undiagnosed son in his mid - 20's who spends all day every day sitting in his room all day playing games, I found this really interesting.   It's not a quick fix but with a bit of work this might just work.

when you're next in manila, why not drop into the puzzle cafe

Thu 5 May 2016 11:39am

A cafe in the Philippines is giving disabled people in the area a chance to succeed in life and break down stigma in the process.

Jose Canoy was 12 when his family realised that he would no longer do well in school.

He has autism, and his family began to understand that, unlike other kids his age, Jose was never going to write an essay on history or memorise the planets in the solar system. His brain just didn't work that way and he wasn't being given much support at school.

Dual addictions – to death-defying speed and tea – mixed, in the right way, with an infectious curiosity about how stuff works have since turned a lorry mechanic and bike racer with Asperger’s syndrome into one of Britain’s unlikeliest, and most reluctant, celebrities...

...He now works full-time for Moody International, a Scania centre in Grimsby.
