I also felt intense resentment for anyone who asked questions and made statements born of sheer ignorance.
I’m sure you’ve heard a few ...

Yes I can be, I am able to enjoy others company as many autistics can. We can enjoy social occasions like parties and cinema trips.
I love concerts and the theatre.
That does not mean however that I do not risk sensory overload in those places which happens frequently.
It does not mean ...Continue Reading →
Does your child have a special interest?
Maybe they collect model cars, stamps or buttons?

An article published today by autism daily newscast.com has created a storm of disgust from the autistic community . It states that there are ten perks to being bullied as an autistic child.
The author is an applied behavioural analysis trainer.
