Meet the miracle micro pig who taught a non-verbal autistic child to TALK

A GINGER micro pig became the talk of the town during today's This Morning as a beaming mother recalled how the beast taught her autistic five-year-old to talk.

Sam Bailey was born bilingual, but his speech soon deteriorated until he was eventually diagnosed with classical autism.

Films and the Media

Mon 3 Apr 2017 7:02pm

Hello people, what are everybodies favourite or worst films related to autism? and why?

and what are peoples general thoughts of how autism has been or is portrayed in the media? is there a certain preference the media have?


I'm interested in peoples thoughts on the medias impact on how the general population view autism. As the media plays a massive role in collective mindsets I wonder if and how any of these 'favourite or worst' movies have impacted that.

and what about the news? aghhh I could go on all day.

A Thought About "Labels" And How To Help People With Autism (And Others)

Mon 13 Mar 2017 2:33pm

I find the human tendency to label and categorize things interesting---the labeling and categorization of other people specifically. Sometimes it's practical---we do it naturally, subconsciously or consciously, all the time; it helps us to make sense of and create order and comfort in our lives. But it can also be lazy and unnecessary, and detrimental to others.

Jack's progress in T889

Wed 1 Mar 2017 4:34pm

Hello all,

I know I'm not updating as regularly as I used too, but work and study makes it difficult to get in the mood. 

T889 "Problem Solving" has been a new kind of challenge for me, but worthwhile, I have learnt many ways to spot issues in situations. Also turn SpaceX's explosion last year into sucess for me. 

But it has been a great opportunity to apply & expand my knowledge on launching rockets.

My TMA scores are 54%, 70% and 71%, giving me 65.5% OCAS. Very good for a master's level.

I have a diagnosis of autism, but have not been assessed for dyscalculia, although I know I have it because I've always struggled with numbers and have no maths qualifications as a result (it's beyond just having a weakness in this area - I have a severe deficit that was picked up on in primary school, and was assessed, but no official diagnosis was given - dyscalculia was not  formally named until very recently). I was wanting to have a proper assessment done so that I could have a formal diagnosis of dyscalculia because it might offer some protection and recognition of this difficulty.

My teenage son is being stalked on social media, text and phone calls

Tue 13 Dec 2016 8:21pm

Hello I'm new to the forum but really need some advice or ideas about this.  My 16 year old son has ASD and ADD and although he seems relatively normal on the outside he doesn't have great emotional maturity. He wants to have a girlfriend and had already lost one friendship at school over a girl. In that context, two days ago out of the blue he got a friend request from a girl and he accepted without us realising. As soon as he did she started messaging him and got him to give her his phone number and address.
