I am a fibrowarrior!
My brother has aspergers and is 18 years old. I am incredible proud of what he has achieved. He has just finished his A-Levels (after really struggling with them) and is trying to find an apprenticeships in accountancy
My son is 4 and was dignosed with autism this year. Currently waiting for him to be seen by an educational psychologist before we register him for primary school. It took us 1 & half years to get through whole diagnostic process.
I have worked as a carer for adults on the autism spectrum, and now work with children on the spectrum. I think everyone is on the spectrum.The way it was explained to me when I said that everyone is on the spectrum was that 3 people could be sick but for different reasons1. Morning sickness2. A bug3. A hangoverso although they experience similar symptoms and can compare its not always because of the same reason. I think we all traits that can put us on the spectrum but they are also part of peoples personality.
I have a son who will be 3 next month non verbal and we have history of autism in the family. St the moment we are on crszy long waiting lists to see speech therapist etc only support we get is via a programme though the local council. Can't see light at the end here...

I have ADHD, Asppergers Syndrome, Bi-polar disorder and emotional instability disorder, and even though i'm a qualified psychologist it is difficult at times. I graduated so that i can help others who suffer with the day to day turmoils of Autism and have worked for Autism West Midlands, i specialise in Autism and have researched it since i was diagnosed 15 years ago (aged 33). If there is Anyone who would like advice or just to talk in general about Autism i am more than happy to help. Best Wishes, Paul.
