New website

Wed 13 May 2009 8:07am

I am the mother of a child with aspergers and a research psychologist. I recently wrote a book on parenting children with aspergers and during the research phase of the book I spoke to some 200 parents who often felt that the education system was letting their children down. As a result of these anecdotal stories I felt that we needed to obtain some empirical evidence about educational provision. To this end I set up a website with some other parents.

Hello.  My name is Mary.  My son is nearly 4 and has ASD. 

He starts full time in mainstream education in September which I am worried about for many reasons.

I have never used any online community forums before so bare with me if I seem a bit slow!

Hi from Catherine

Wed 29 Apr 2009 9:33pm
Hi My name is Catherine I am the mum of 3 boys aged 14, 12 and 9. My eldest has a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome and is coping well at a mainstream boarding school, the middle one has fairly high functioning autism but with a significant language disorder, he is currently home educated. My youngest has no diagnosis but would probably meet the criteria for Aspergers. He is also in mainstream school.

Hello all.

 My name is Stewart O'Callaghan and I have a few connections to autism: I have a brother with an ASD diagnosis, I have been an ABA therapist, I research autism and I am also currently in the procedure of gaining an Asperger's diagnosis for myself via the NHS.

 I'm happy to talk about all of the above and look forward to such discussions.
