Hello i am currently in the process of getting my son who is almost 5 years old diagnosed.

Just wanted to say hello as i have been advised that this is going to be a very long process in the area that welive in, which i well believe as we have been waiting since December for a referral to the Community Paediatrician to see if we can get him assessed.

i have been assessed for autism and have been told that i have a touch of aspergers, and i was told that it is a form of epilepsy (which i have had all my life)

it is just in the air at the minute if i have autism (but aspergers is there)

because i am 46 it was not heard of in the 70's so has come of a shock about it

at my assessment it was said that people with autism can develop depression in later life (which i was diagnosed with last year

because i am new to this i would like to know more about adults with aspergers/autism

Hi All

I'm a mother of 5 (and an extra 3 stepsons) four girls and one boy.  My middle girl was diagnosed ASD last May, after a long battle with the Pediatrician who had decided she "just had a low IQ".  He eventually had to concede when every other professional he demanded she saw (Ed Psych, Speech & Language, Neuro Psychologist, and more) all said, bar none, that they believed she was ASD.

Hello everyone,

I am the mum of an amazing 2 years and 4 month old boy, who has been diagnosed with autism on 20th of February this year.  Even if my instinct told me it can be true I still felt that all my life is falling apart when I got he news. He is not talking, but he is a very loving and happy baby and we have a great relatioship. I am now trying to get the best therapy for him and heard about ABA VB, was wondering if anyone can tell me if it a good therapy as its really expensive and also if there is any founding available for this.

hello!  I am a mom of 5 and my oldest two kiddos have classical autism.  My daughter is 13 and my son just turned 12.   I am in the US in Missouri. I came across this forum while searching the net. I figure you guys might have some brilliant ideas that we haven't tried yet. I am always looking for the next behavior modifier because who knows what challenges tomorrow brings!!

Introducing myself to support ASD treatment

Tue 3 Mar 2015 9:27am

As a doctor I am very curious about the upcoming deadly devastating diseases. I am an active blogger to make people know about the current researches and treatments.
Currently I am writing and finding facts on autism.

CDC reports on autism in U.S of 2008 and 2010 were not good, and it is increasing dramatically. So, we need to aware more of it.

Here I found a blog on how to treat autism:
