Hi I like to introduce my self I'm Helen and I'm here to find out information and to talk to people who may have experience with an autistic child. My son Isaac is 2.5 years old and has autism I'm a mum of 4 and I have never dealt with something like this. I'm trying to get a diagnosis for Isaac but the system is so slow and I don't know where I'm upto and where it will all lead. If anybody is willing to talk to me I would appreciate it thanks.
I am a parent of a autustic todddler Callum (3 year old) and we have just got a diagnosis.. We really want to find families in a similar position locally.. Is there anyone out there? Struggling trying to negotiate the council and maybe the nightmare EHC plan etc..
Love to hear from anyone, we live in SE London Penge se20..
Hello, my name is sean and I have two sons that both have different form of autism, they are both on the pathway. But there mother who they both live with is finding it very difficult as she is also being test for asperger syndrome.
My 2 year old son is waiting for his autism diagnosis. The Drs are sure this is what he has.
My Thomas is non verbal and also doesnt eat any food ( he used to though ) but drinks his peadisure fibre and loves orange juice
Im looking for advice on behaviour as this is getting worse for him. He bites and bangs his head alot and hits out at anyone when he is having a meltdown. We get these about 2 or 3 times a day. His twin brother James is now really scared when Thomas goes into his meltdown. which can make Thomas worse.
Hi there, my 2 year old son has very recently been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. It hasn't' been a complete shock as myself and my wife had our suspicions. Now it has been realised we are finding it hard not to analyse everything he does and feel he is now worse than he was before even though this probably isn't the case. Just got through another meltdown while trying to get him ready for bed.

My daughter is almost 17 & was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome when she was 3 years old. Until now we have been coping relatively well with her behaviour but in the last year we have struggled greatly - especially regarding her being lonely. She used to love her own company but not so much anymore.
She has a couple of friends but NEVER gets invited to their houses - instead one in particular is around a lot at ours.
She has so much to offer in a friendship - polite, funny, quite articulate & with all the usual AS quirks that make her unique.
