The lunchtime revolution at a school for children with autism

What a brilliant article and how lucky are those kids at Queensmill school.


It would be interesting to hear what provisions are made for lunchtime in other autism specialist schools.

Advice Please

Sun 12 Jul 2015 1:58pm

Just wondering if anyone can offer advise please.  I have a very young son with a diagnosis.  My son doesn't have a bond at all with his father and shows increased anxiety when he sees him (we are not together).  - I believe father is on the spectrum, with other possible conditions, but is in complete denial about his existing long list of medical conditions.  He refuses to see areas he himself needs understanding and assistance on and therefore does not see and is not able to care for my son's specific needs.  Instead he does what he wants and my son has to comply.  This has detri

I still can't navigate this stupid new website. I want it back like the old one. It makes it more difficult to access for me and I feel really angry about this, and I am definitely using the site less than I used to with the old set up. Stupid stupid nobody listens to me anyway.

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.
