Reading and lack of time zone

Mon 14 Sep 2015 8:47am


i'm new to the page and new to being a mum to a high functioning autistic girl. She is six and only been diagnosed in July. Thankfully we only started the process in Feb of this year. 

We are a military family over seas and seem to be left to our own devices! No practical support for the challenges at home. We have recently moved home and school, thankfully due to the nature of school being an environment that she is able to cope with and make the right choices she has settled well. Behaviours become apparent at home and have intensified.

Losing hope

Mon 17 Aug 2015 6:12am

Hi All,

This is my first time posting. I have a beautiful 14 month old, he is loving (with his mum anyway) and provides us with such joy, he can be a handful, climbing,getting into cupboards he shouldn't be in etc, but he is a funny little guy, often smiling and laughiing. There's just one small problem, I am positive he has some form of ASD.

Hello Everyone, I'm a newbie..........with a question

Tue 11 Aug 2015 9:05am

Hello Everyone,

I'm new here, so I thought I would introduce myself.

I'm a mum to a 10 year old girl, who was recently diagnosed as having High Functioning Autism. At the same time, we found via Occupational Therapist that she has Sensory Processing Disorder and Developemental Coordination Disorder (Dyspraxia).  She is in mainstream Primary School entering YR6 in September, and has to have a lot of support. So after lots of assessments, the school is going for an EHCP.

Hi. I'm new to this forum. I have  2 boys , one with ASD Jamie 7 yrs who has ASD and his younger brother is Oisin 4. He was diagnosed 3 yrs ago. We live in west cork Ireland . He attends a Unit attached to a mainstream school. He's very happy there . Goes to normal class half the time and into unit then other half. Came as a monumental shock initially but he's doing good now and we deal with it as best we can with help and intervention where possible. He's verbal but uses more basic language and communicates on a needs basis.. Starting to socialise more .

I thought I would introduce myself. My son is nearly 5 years old and as an ASD diagnosis. He has very limited speech, a very short attention span and is very hyperactive. He loves books, especially flapping through them and also loves swimming. Any tips on support strategies, groups, activities would be great. We are near cambridge. I am already in touch with NAS. Thanks Philippa

Hello Everyone,

My name is jamie, but most people know me as Jamie & Lion because I have a large lion who never leaves my side. I am 25 and I live in london where I work for the BBC.

I have diagnoses of Aspergers and ADHD from when I was a kid and teenager.

At the BBC I work to make sure our products and service are as usable to as many people as possible. I work with the research and development team as well as productions teams.

I also get involved with autism related stuff around employment.

Hello all

I am Sarah and I'm 26. I have mild Aspergers Syndrome and I enjoy technology and computers. I enjoy watching Benidorm on the TV and I am fond of Jake Canuso who plays Mateo the barman. I did a lot of research into Aspergers for a talk I did to 50 teachers when I was 15. 

Every Autistic person is different.

Hello, I'm Sabrina!

Hello, my name's Sabrina! I'm 20 years old and have high-functioning autism.

I was diagnosed with autism when I was 14, although my parents suspected I had it from as early as four years old. My autism often makes me excitable and chatty, and I often jump about and flap to cope with excitement or anger. I also have OCD, which makes me very afraid of getting wet, and causes me to clean my hands at even the smallest stain.
