My 23 year old autistic daughter Sian splits her time between living with me in Macclesfield and with her mum in Harlech, North Wales. She's a lovely girl, very happy with her life, and adored by everyone who gets to know her. She understands most of what she hears and reads, and she can speak remarkably well after many years of speech therapy, given that when she was younger it seemed as though she would never be able to speak at all. She can navigate on a PC using a mouse with support to guide her, but she can't write or use the keyboard.
Hi all! I'm AMP, I have 10 year old Asperger Son, he was diagnosed 5 years ago.
He is funny, charming, polite, frustrated, emotionally immature and I love him!
I'm a single Mum and generally quite happy. My major meltdowns occur when I get frustrated with the "system" that appears not to care enough and support our children.
Smiles to you all. God knows we all need them.
My name is Carmen, I am Mum to 3 little boys, aged 9, 8 & 3. My 9 year old son Leo was diagnosed with PDD-NOS at the age of 6 and since then we have had no support or training given. I have gained most of my information online and through some wonderful friends who have children with Aspergers and HF Autism.
hi just thought i would introduce me and my son, i'm kelly 22 and my son kyron 3, has severe autisim and developmental delay. He is currently attending a special needs preschool 5 mornings a week which he loves.
He has no communication at all and only uses a handful of words! most of the time he is frustrated obviously from not being able to communicate his needs. I very rarely go into town with him now as every shop he goes into he has a majour tantrum!!
