I’ve many times given advice on sensory seeking behaviours in autistic children, how to aid them and why they may occur.

While explaining that a child spinning for example, is seeking to feed their vestibular sense or that a child stamping their feet is gaining priopreceptive feedback from the pressure of their soles bouncing on the floor, I’ve never described how it feels.

Tactile.

I’m going ...

It Wasn’t Harrys Time.

It Wasn’t Harrys Time.

 

You may have seen the posts on Facebook about the untimely death of four year old Harry  due to medical neglect.

I’ve been meaning to delve deeper, to inquire of the attitude of the hospital, the despair and courage of Harry’s family.

Yet still I have the devastating knowledge that no matter what the outcome of investigations, no matter what the compensation this family receive, this little boy died at the wrong time.

Harry was a happy fun loving little ...

To those who say they hate autism…. – By Rosemarie Carreiro

To those who say they hate autism….

You will ...

Ron Sandison And The Autism Time Bomb.

As an autism advocate I come across anti-vaxxers who viciously fight against vaccinating in the mistaken belief it will case autism in their children, (the light left his eyes…..the Autisms had come….). I come across people who use chlorine dioxide bleach in enemas believing it will purge mythical rope worms causing autism in their children (we are parasite motels that are mobile, you see?). I amble past parents abusing their children with TMS magnetic ...

right ear.

My schools great, you know? They try and include me in everything, there’s the usual tier

system of popular girls and boys, great clothes and own car as soon as they leave school.

They are all off to high entrance fee Universities which is great for them.

I’ll be going into a special ed programme learning life skills, I am, however gifted in ...

Anxiety, Me and You

Anxiety, Me and You

In this article I will explain what anxiety is, how it feels and some ways to help cope with it.

Anxiety is waking up with a million and one reasons to stay in bed; it’s the fear of the unknown…and the fear of the known. It’s losing weight due to constant fidgeting. The realisation that your favourite artist is having a concert, dying to go but can’t because of the overwhelming dread of getting on a bus/ train, ...
