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

To those who say they hate autism….

You say it loud and clearly that you hate, resent, and even despise autism.

That you hate autism for robbing your child of a normal life.

That you hate autism for not giving your child a voice.

That autism took everything good away from you…like your holiday gatherings, your

vacations, your friends, your family, even your spouse.

To you that was all autism.

You will also state that your child may have autism but it’s not who they are.

You will ...

Ron Sandison And The Autism Time Bomb.

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 ...

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, ...

Unique- by Ali Al Jabbar

By Ali Al Jabbar

This character is made by a person who is visually impaired, autistic and has mental health issues.

Health has always been part of my life, I had no choice but to be this way.

I often notice that a lot of information surrounding LGBT /anti-Racism/ feminist causes is aimed specifically at able bodied people. Perhaps to some this makes sense, after all disabled people are part ...

More Bleachers found out!

In the media again….

Another time for the Police to be involved. How on earth to the NAS possibly stand by their claim that they are not seeing any increase in the UK. Sounds like they have their heads in the sand to me.

Well done again Emma Dalmayne, you continue to work so hard for us. Thankyou.

***content warning*** contains sexual references

Sex and Âûtism. A Reality Check. – By Elinor Broadbent

One of the most common questions I am asked when people find out I am autistic AND I have kids is “but how do you have sex if you don’t like touch?!” Followed closely by the statement “I thought you people didn’t like sex”.

Well dears just like everyone else, some people like sex, some love it and others have no need for it. Yep, we are just ...

No More Darkness

No More Darkness – Rosemarie Carreiro

I had my light. I remember it well
My light shined ever so brightly
It shined with pride
It shined with acceptance
It shined with love
Every time you looked into my eyes
I saw my light in yours.
Then the darkness arrived
My light was gone.
My light had been taken
I sat in the dark and I waited
Waited for it to be given back
Waited for the right time
Waited for the ...

Some Well-meaning advice…

Posted by:

Well-meaning advice to an Autistic Child.

 

I sat up late one night to write the letter you are about to read. I should have gone to bed, but an impassioned plea from a Mother whose child was having difficulties at school with his peers prevented me from being able to sleep. The words “I hate it when I’m being autistic” made my eyes fill up, and I reacted with all the usual common sense of unregulated compulsion, ...

Bullying and Communication

Posted by:

Bullying and Communication – By Bill Appleton

“We don’t have a bullying problem”. I looked at my wife, turned back to the acting Headmistress of the school we were checking out for our little boy and said “Thank you very much, we’re done.” I fought for, and got him a place in a village school, where the Headmistress was considerably more pragmatic- “We don’t like bullying here, and will try to intervene when we know it is happening.”
