The match, the shirt and the Haribo stand.

My son passionately supports a well known football team.

I personally don’t have a preference with football teams but it’s an interest that has helped him with number recognition, understanding boundaries and rules and gives him a sense camaraderie.

Luckily it was in its box so it was ok.

Early this morning my eldest son went to ask for an Autism assessment, the GP declined which means I have to go down there with him and attempt to explain to the doctor what my son obviously was not able to communicate.

An open address to the parents using MMS and GcMAF from the autistic community.

DAN (Defeat Autism Now) and Autism Speaks.  

They feed the propaganda money making machine that sends the ...

What a meltdown feels like for an autistic person.

Posted by:

It’s never just a sandwich.

As an adult on the spectrum and a mother of children with autism, I am often asked about meltdowns and how they feel. I can tell you how it feels to have a meltdown from my perspective and how to help your child.

When you have a meltdown, it’s as if the world is ending. Everything is too much and you feel like an overwhelming darkness has engulfed your very being. Irrepressible anger that may seem completely ...
