My little girl

Wed 1 Jul 2015 1:54pm

Im so frustrated, my daughter is such a happy little girl and because she doesnt speak as much as some other children in her age group they want to test and label her.

Im angry and feeling alone i dont know what to think? im struggling to get my head around it and i shouldnt because i worked with autisic adults so i know the drill.

is this my fault?

have i messed up as a mum?

she isnt even diagnosed and she is being treated "different" by close family.

Support at home

Sun 28 Jun 2015 4:05am

Hello All,

I wanted to post a question. I am very lucky in that I have good support at home. A friend lives with me to look after me and make sure I am safe.

However on nights when he can't be here and no friends are able to visit we pay a lady to come visit.

She normally does babysitting for kids, but didn't mind helping out. She is super nice.

She visited 4 times while friends where here so that I could get use to her. I found these visits really hard. I wasn't able to speak much. I got very anxious.

My 2 year old with ASD and ADHD HELP!!!

Fri 26 Jun 2015 1:59pm


My daughter is 2 years old and has recently been diagnosed with autisim. Im not a single father however I am not in a relationship with my daughters mother either. My daughter was born when I was 18 and I loved the feeling of becoming a dad. However over the last two years me and my daughters mother began noticing certain things about her which give us signs something wasnt right.

Hi Everyone, 

I have been Awol for sometime and can't really remember the last time I posted on here. My life is being over taken right now with Home schooling my 10 & half yr old with Aspergers (Education has changed so much since I was at school and some of the stuff has gone bad).

My son hates sun cream as it is so sticky. Does anyone have any suggestions?  We are going on holiday in the Summer and he is going to need to have sun cream on.

Hectic time

Hi all. It was a while since I visited here. I guess apart from that time being crazy busy I couldn't log in which could be partially a couse. During that time much happened. Eric finally got portage worker assigned, his speech & language group kick start. Xavier have 4 teeth extracted and suprises surprises he start talking day after! He's not using words on his own but he repeating every thing which is a massive step forward.

Autism. It's not a processing error. It's a different operating system.

Sensory Processing Aids

Sat 30 May 2015 10:37pm

Hi all as discussed previously my teenage son has many sensory issues, to enable certain barriers to be overcome I have been advised on various tools & aids that could really help him.
Now locating these things is not a problem however the purchase prices of some are quite expensive, even preowned (where acceptable).

my story and the decision on having another baby

Sat 30 May 2015 6:11pm

Hello i have just come across this great website and decided to join.

My name is maryam and im married and have a little boy called Rami. Rami is 4 and was only diagnosed with autism last week

We don't know as of yet what his level of ASD is but it has been a difficult and worrying time for us as you probably know as a parent.
