I am new to this site. I have a 16 year old son with ASD who had a really hard time at school, but is now settled into a computing course at college. We managed to navigate the hell that is the DLA application too so have been through a fair bit ;-).
I was a member of a couple of support groups on facebook which I found invaluable at times, but try to avoid facebook as much as possible lol.
I have also conducted undergrad research into theories by Simon Baron-Cohen and am currently writing my dissertion...but will save that for another post.
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and warn everyone that I have NEVER been good with technology so apologies in advance if I muck things up to begin with :-) X
