First timer here !

Sun 19 Apr 2009 5:03pm

Hello everyone !

I am a 34 year old mum to three children. My middle child was diagnosed with autism just before his third birthday almost two years ago now.

I am looking for advice, support and the understanding that comes from others on this site.

Tomorrow he starts full time mainstream school with his statement in place already..I am scared to death !

Hi there

I am just writing to introduce myself. I am an Autism specialist currently working as an independent consultant with schools and families across the UK and also in my first year of my doctorate in education specialising in Autism and effective teaching...

Would be really interested in hearing from anyone that shares my research interests and of course parents who either want some independent advice or have a story to tell!

best wishes

Hello from Jane

Hello Everyone

 I have 2 sons J who is 7 and M who is 5 with severe autism.  He has many sensory issues which make life somewhat challenging but these are certainly improving and severe learning difficulties.  J is an extremely nurturing big brother and never loses his patience with M which is very sweet and keeps me going during hard times.

 M is currently being educated with a home based ABA programme which is hard work but it is  difficult to imagine another way to teach him.

Hello from Clare Mac

Hello out there!

I have already posted a large waffle about my youngest daughter somewhere on this site and Josie was kind enough to answer, ( I can't find it now).  But, I hadn't introduced myself.

I have two daughters, the youngest is 3 and autistic, but has yet to be formerly diagnosed.   As autism affects 4 times more boys than girls, I feel alone in my search for advice.'s picture

Hi I'm Dizzy

Wed 1 Apr 2009 3:08pm

I'm Dizzy, I am mam to three children.  My eldest son, who is now 18, has a diagnosis of HFA and Asperger's Syndrome, and my youngest son, who is 11, has  a diagnosis of Dyspraxia.  I live in Doncaster but am originally from Liverpool, which to me will always be the place I call home.  I spend most of my time ensuring my boys have what they need to 'Survive,' and cope in a world which can often be very confusing for them, whilst trying to raise awareness wherever and whenever I can.  I do this by sharing experiences with other parents who have children on
