Hi, my name is Joshua and as you can see this is my first day in the forum. I recently married my wife (less then a year now ) and she happens to be a mother of two autistic boys. The oldest is 8 and the youngest is 4. We also have full custody of my son who will be 5 the 16th of this month. The reason I joined the group isn't because of my step sons as I love them to death and have adjusted well to being a dad to special needs boys pretty well. I'm still getting use to a lot of stuff but I take it day by day. The reason I joined is my wife is pregnant....
Hi all! I am a homeschool mom of two boys, ages five and nine. Our five year old has autism.
We have in Texas for about 5 months. We were in Korea for 3 years before that with my husband's job. I look forward to sharing our experiences!
My name is Luke and I'm a Leeds-based Aspie who's decided to give this site a try.
I'm 30yrs old, work as a senior copywriter while doing some freelance web admin on the side and am currently the vice-chairman of Leeds Asperger Adults, a support group which has been going for over a decade.
I hope to meet people local to me on this site as well as a few others to exchange ideas in relation to running support groups, fundraising and, most importantly of all, self-advocacy.

My son turns 5 next month and we have been dealing with his autistic needs for many years now. His bed-time is the worst for us our son loves puzzle and he is what we call an escape artist. We have tall safety gates which he can climb over. The windows are locked but he's tried to force them over, he chucks everything in his room out and down the stair, we have had to be harsh and emty his room.
Hi everyone, just wanted to take a second to introduce myself. My name's Mandi, or you can call me Nonny/squirenonny. I'm an allistic writer (mostly young adult fantasy) currently working on a book with an autistic character. I'll probably mostly be lurking/listening to what you all have to say as part of my research as I work on this book.
If anyone would like to help more directly (read what I've written and give feedback), that would also be fantastic!
Well where do i start umm Jan 2014 after graduating and taking a gap year I landed my first full time job (happy days) in Marketing at the University I graduated from. I probably was one of the toppers in class although my grades came out below average, which tutor stated was mainly because i dont put as much effort in as others and i seem to be more of a practical person so i went with that.
Hi all. I have a 6 year old son named John who had a diagnosis a little over a year ago with ASD. He is generally a happy little chap. He's in mainstream school but is struggling with most things at the moment.
I noticed something was different the moment John was born. I couldn't tell you what it was, I just had a feeling.
As time progressed John missed all of the usual developmental markers and by the age of 2 we knew we couldn't wait any more so started down the diagnosis route.
