  1. Saw details of this conference in the local paper, but its a National event - thought you might be interested http://www.treatingautismconferences.com/
  2. Hmmm - looks like there's a gap in the market for some kind of assessment terminology that is useful - I like Lucas's idea of a circle - it puts me in mind of those wheels you get to work out things like feng shui - do you think it would be possible to work out all the possible 'autistic personality types'.........like you get those psychometric tests that have 16 combinations and you end up with four letters - Introvert Idealist Organiser etc ...I'm not keen on 'low' or 'high' either - my son has no speech but lots of personality/affection and problem solving - he could find and retrieve a chocolate biscuit from ANYWHERE - stand back Indiana Jones!! ....and call me cynical but I say that this 'mild' business is being put forward to try and reduce entitlements to things like DLA
  3. thanks guys for the links and advice - have ordered the book off Amazon and will let you know how we get on
  4. I'm no expert but here's a few links to read: Sunderland page TACA Healing Arts I hasten to add that I am not responsible for these websites and the theories on them! (I dont want anyone giving me a hard time if they dont agree with them!)

    To my forum family

    THinking of you
  6. Me again! Same question - but with glucosamine sulphate - I tasted one and its pretty bitter, so I'm not sure if there is a better variety or a better way to hide it? My little'un does seem to be a good candidate for problems with sulphur transferase as he has responded really well to taking apples, citrus, chocolate , paracetamol, tomato and vinegar out of his diet - I've seen anecdotal recommendations for using glucosamine sulphate and wonder if anyone has experience (good or bad) of doing so, Again, thanks in advance...
  7. Is anyone using digestive enzymes for their child? If yes, which ones, how do you 'get them in' - and do you consider them beneficial? If no, any particular concerns? Thanks in advance
  8. <'> <'> <'> The very fact that you're thinking you might be a bad mum is the evidence that you're not! 'bad mums' wouldnt stop to think about their kids for a second - You're doing your best poppet, and your best is good enough!! <'> <'> <'>
  9. Another good thing for me was the 'Early Support' family pack from the DfES website, not sure on the links but if you search on the DfES site it should come up. Came within a week and its a big pack with lots of leads for services - it helped me to know what I was entitled to and where I could find it and gives you folders for organising all your childs reports and things like that. I've been given a place on a Help! course in July (Isle of Wight) and there seem to be a few on in other places over the next month or two.....
  10. Oh I'm so glad it's not just me!!! 5 yr daughter is grumpy and floppy in the sun, I spend all my time moving the shade around (3 year old little'un wont wear hat, shades or suncream - or clothes or a nappy for that matter), sweeping up the sand from the sandpit (thrown everywhere), the gravel from round the footings (thrown at the conservatory), mopping up water from the play-table (bought indoors and poured in neat little puddles at varying intervals around the house, various wee's, poo's and crushed food from varying places, and when it comes to me.... ...I've got no summer tops that sufficiently cover my tummy, I'm so white Im nearly blue - if I try that cream that gently tans you over time I just end up with orange hands and ankles (who's got time to do all that scrubbing and moisturising anyway?) and the older I get, the stranger the places I sweat.....like my knees sweat - that's got to be wierd right? I was so looking forward to summer too!!!
  11. Cool! (literally!) - I need to have another good look in there - if I cant find the magnum thingies you may be hearing about a one-woman protest Anyone got a choc-ice costume....!
  12. Just a quickie to say we got Whole Earth cornflakes in Waitrose last week - reasonably priced and the ingredients are just corn, raw cane sugar, salt and sunflower lecethin. Also to anyone who is struggling trying to make creations that look like chicken nuggets or fish fingers (which I was for ages!) STRUGGLE NO MORE! Take a look at the new range of stuff at Sainsburys in the free from section - so much child friendly stuff I literally nearly sobbed!
  13. I'm in the New Forest (Hampshire border) and cant speak for the LEA bit yet, but can say that the early intervention and health has been great in every respect except a shortage of speech and language therapists... within months of suspected ASD I had speech & Language and portage, then OT, special playgroups and several support groups - the networking between health and education has been really good too. Only just starting on the school bit but all the parents I've met seem happy (and those that had problems had been given alternatives they were happy with) and I have been encouraged to look at several schools and across into Bournemouth too (two Beacon Schools) So, I am a newbie, but it seems good here so far.....
  14. Radio 4 write up a link for the write up...
