The Confusion Between Autism and Co Morbid Conditions

Posted by:

 

I was asked today by a member in my support group what the differences between autism and learning difficulties are. They had been informed by a well known autism charity that autism is a learning difficulty.

5 Reasons I like being Âûtistic

Posted by:

I am a mother who’s been diagnosed with Asperger’s, and I have autistic children. 

I wrote this account of positives because I believe these are strengths I have. I see too many negatives in the media about autism, so enjoy these positives and see if you recognize yourself or your child.

1. I can hyper focus. I can zero in on every grain of sand as it trickles through my fingers. I see colors brightly and instead of hurrying ...

Anxiety and Autism

Anxiety and physical symptoms

As an autistic adult I suffer from anxiety if routines are changed and it can manifest with physical symptoms.

Today I was planning for an appointment I had tomorrow, I had arranged childcare and my travel route. I had planned what to wear and what to dress the children in, had sorted out our fares and looked online at google maps to visually see where I was going so I was mentally prepared.

I decided to ring up as ...

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.

We have individuals selling harmful unscientifically proven concoctions.

How I’m Helping My Child Deal With Bullying

Posted by:

Two years ago I withdrew my child from mainstream education after a regime of bullying (from children and an adult learning assistant) shot his self confidence to pieces.

He was 5 at the time and made to feel worthless. The psychological affects of this were vast, including an inability to speak fluently anymore and other distressing physical behaviors.

Since then, he’s progressed by being home educated, having plenty of play therapy to rid his memories and in some cases, ...
