    Over-enthusiastic about autism

    Hi all, I have maybe an unusual situation with my mum when it comes to autism. When I was diagnosed as a child, she was incredibly enthusiastic about it. She bought a bunch of books (think Simon Baron-Cohen and similar) and has generally enjoyed the whole experience of my diagnosis. This goes...

    Uh Mom? Uh Dad? Did either of these show Asperger-type behavior?

    My mom was definitely cold, l don't remember a huggy caring mother. l remember that l didn't feel accepted, almost a burden in some respects by the teenage years. What does your childhood bring up in your mind.

    A mom, a son and lots of curiosity

    My eight-year-old told me last night, again, that he’s not learning anything at school. That he wants to know how everything was created, and how the plants and animals were inside. I told him the we could learn it at home anyway. So today I found these very cool videos that I want to see and...

    Filling up your world

    You don’t know your life is filled up with elephants, but it is, believe me. Pay attention today, and see how many elephants you can find. I had this epiphany when my daughter was an elephant-obsessed-two-year old. She thought that elephants were called ‘circles’ because I once told her ‘that’s...
