This is a great website. If you start reading something about Nepal make sure you navigate back to the beginning. I get involved and forget to read this website but I always go back to where I left off because I don’t want to miss a minute.
This lady has an incredible insight into her Autistic child. Until we all accept that the gift of Autism is also accompanied by incredible challenges for the individual and their family, we are not going to be able to make positive changes. I personally see autism as a positive BUT until we get words that separate the wonderful variation in thinking and sensing from the painful, awful symptoms of autism, seriously what other words can a parent use. My God, you have a great attitude, you are doing so well doing a horrible job, I congratulate all of team Lachlan.
I started this blog as I wanted to create a positive space to show how far we have come, don’t get me wrong my magical wee man has moved mountains to get to where we are today, in this post I am going to be 100% honest with the world about the complete living hell, living with Autism is not just for Lachlan but for his brother and sister and us his parents. This post has been bubbling and building in me for months, I am at breaking point now, exhausted, broken and deeply hurt, this is the result of the constant battle against ignorant people, a system that doesn’t work and an uncaring world.
Every thoughtless coment, wounds.
I now fully understand what other parents meant when they referred to Autism as the hidden disability.
Do you have any idea how much my little boy suffers?
Do you have…

Unfortunately it has taken me this long to realise that the fault with my blog was not the stupid internet at my house or the kids constant YouTube streaming. Today I was asking a resident IT expert here at KSP and he offered to look at it. I've changed computers and now KSP has internet … Continue reading Sad face, no bloggy!
Okay, so if I want to keep blogging I have to keep posting. But I don't have any posts ready. I got way over anxious as my children's lives spiralled. Unfortunately one of my reactions was stimming; and a big trigger was computer glitches, so when I typed I would start to hit the keyboard … Continue reading I Need A Habit
This is the introduction of my new computer, Baron the flying Ace. Between a working computer and the end of some stuff, I am hoping to return to blogging. Quick news, NDIA season, that time of the year where we disabled people are ritually humiliated in return for only a small cut in therapy funding … Continue reading New Computer
I found this on Facebook and it is too important not to share.
(Rachel is a normal, healthy autistic who has been working with Nonautistic sufferers all her life)
Non-autism Disability is a triad of impairments involving three or more of the following disorders:
1. Muted sensory awareness: Where the sufferer has a defective or lessened sense of smell, touch, hearing or visual awareness. Their palate might also be muted meaning they eat too much. Being defective in sound and vision abilities means they are often unaware of everything going on around them and miss out a lot on life. Sometimes they barely notice a touch or a flickering light as if they are not fully switched on to life.
2. Low Awareness Disorder: People inflicted with Nonautism Disability are often not taking in their surroundings enough and block out or ignore lots of detail. Although frustrating to live with people like this (friends, partners and families often report how they…

As to the interesting people in the house, they were interviewed. They let me type. Check out the rest of this site while you are there.
Greetings. Snoops and Kommando Kitty here. We have a pawsome interview for you today with the cats from Autistsix, It’s a great blog, except the cats don’t get nearly enough space. It’s about a family who live in Australia,which is apparently Down Under something. (The editors said to include it.) The lady who writes it says the whole family is a little unique because of something called Autism Spectrum Disorder. We don’t really know what she’s talking about; as far as we can tell, they aren’t any stranger than a lot of the other humans we know.
Would you please introduce yourselves?
Orion – I am Orion Prince of Burmese Tigers, I am also a star.
Smokie – I’m Smokie, pleased to meet you. I am a puppy cat.
Pixie – I am Pixie, I am confused, oh wait that’s not what I mean, I am…
