Hi, I'm Violet, ask me questions about ASD
Hi, I’m Violet. My youngest son has High Functioning Autism and I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in my forties, so I have plenty of ASD experience! I’m a freelance writer - my article, ’Things you should never say to the parents of an autistic child’ is still one of the most-shared items ever on the Metro.
I am also diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, which I manage through a combination of meds, humour and downright bloodymindedness.
Ask me questions about parenting autistic children,
anxiety disorders, living with high functioning autism and being diagnosed with
ASD as an adult.
