A very good friend of mine who has a young adult son with ASD is planning to open a small residential home in the North West for young adults incorporating ABA therapy. She will be launching an appeal for funds to achieve this aim. She is desperately worried as her son has gained so much from ABA for many years now but at age 22 this will stop. She wants to set up the home for him and others to continue to benefit from ABA and so that they have a secure home for life and much better...

Please let me have your thoughts, and whether this is something you would want for your sons and daughters.

Couldn't agree more a friend of mines daughter has just been diagnosed after 3 years back and forth from docs just wish people could understand more about autism and what the family's and children go through everyday its something close to my heart not only because of our Robbie who has a Fab mammy xx but for all those that suffer in silence with prejudice people quick to point fingers and brand a child naughty and 'blame' the parents so much more could be done keep doing what your doing...

Because its so difficult to say we're your child fits into the spectrum and many doctors need more training and the assessments need to be different for each child not just one for all

i just been on a training course...and it is such a huge umbrella/spectrum...some one said "If you know one child with autism, then you know ONE child with autism" - all are different. k x

I used to work with autistic children and it was a challenge and a pleasure to work with these children. and now I have a cousin who is autistic. She is such a beautiful happy little girl. I enjoy helping my cousin learn that it is not a 'death sentence' for her little one. Many are absolute geniuses. Did you know that major corporations seek out autistic individuals for their knowledge and insight? To name just one, Cell phones where created by a group of autistic individuals. Help us spread the truth about autism.

Good for you. You have decided to inform yourself and bring awareness to others. You may have just encouraged one more person to learn and spread knowledge.

Because Its a condition that touches many lives yet there are many who are un-educated and see it as bad behaviour. People need to be educated in the ways that people with autism see their world and understand that its completely different to yours or mine.

because unbelievably we still do not know what causes it and it is rapidly on the increase!
