My name is Donna. I live in Glasgow with my husband and four children.

Two of my children have a diagnosis of autism and one of them also a global development delay.

Hope to get to know you all x

Been Away for Ages

Hi. I can't remember the last time I logged on (the shame of it) but I've been busy "living the autism life" with my children and they're all getting older and presenting new challenges. Thought I would pop into the new forum and say hello as it feels like starting from the beginning.

Autism and mental health

Tue 9 Jun 2015 5:39pm

Hi everyone, I'm Jamie, aged 18, and have autism, GAD, tourettes and Sensory intregration difficulties. I am currently detained under the mental health act so am in hospital in the UK. I do have quite a good understanding of my issues and difficulties  however I struggle greatly to communicate this with the people who support me in hospital.

Hi Guys 

Making the transition from our old web-site to this new one has at best been difficult at one point I gave up on the password so have not been around for a long time.

Josie has been very helpful introducing me to the new site so here we are.

I have been very busy while off line, I have three part time jobs, & very little stress in doing them, two are cleaning jobs & one is cooking lunch in a cafe.

Hi Smile It's been a while since I visited here & didn't really post much when I was here before so just thought I should introduce myself.

Short or full assesments!!!! What's the difference!!!!

Mon 18 May 2015 11:01am

My son had his first appointment with the CDC this week. At the end of his appointment she told me he needs a full assesment as opposed to a short assesment. it's obvious to me that a full assesment is much more detailed and in depth but can anyone tell me why some children have a short assesment and others have a full assesment. Would a full assesment be more for children who may show more or less of the "typical" autistic traits or maybe children who may show signs of "co morbid" conditions along with asd!

New here, I need info/help

Mon 11 May 2015 12:43am

Hello there!

My name's Mark, I currently look after my younger brother who was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder 4 years ago.

I'm looking for information on help he can or should be getting because well basically he gets no support other than what he gets at home.<!--break-->

Hi there!!

Wed 15 Apr 2015 4:26pm

My name is Carole - I have a six year old son Leon who is happy bright and very energetic so keeps me on my toes! He has ASD/Aspergers and severe ADHD. I am also awaiting an assessment for ASD. Super busy at the moment as I'm working full-time and studying for a PGCert in Autism at Sheffield Hallam University which I am really enjoying.  I don't have any support from family etc (apart from my husband who also works full-time) so I'd love to hear from others in a similar boat - parents of young children with autism or adults trying to get a diagnosis.
