SPREADING THE WORD

5 Feb

Just a short post everyone.

Wanted you all to know that I have now started a facebook group and Fan page.  Both are doing well and I’m enjoying  raising awareness for ASD. Both are linked to the blog and I have found it a great way to get more parents reading and sharing their story’s on autism.

Everybody is welcome to become a fan or join the group. All that is required is you’re a facebook member. You are all welcome to add the link to your blogs, notes, videos and more. The best part about being a member is that you help me spread the word and raise awareness for Autism & Asperger’s. We owe it to our children to be their voice and speak out for them because who else will ?

If your interested both group and page are called A boy with Asperger’s

If you have trouble with the link then just type A boy with Asperger’s into the search page on facebook.

MUM’S TELL IT LIKE IT IS.

3 Feb

Well the blog has been going for quite sometime now. In this time I have heard back from many other parents like myself with children on the autistic spectrum. It’s been a great way to bring us mums together and share our experiences. Some great comments have been posted, some interesting interviews taken place and I am pleased to say some great friends have  been made. When I started writing  A boy with Asperger’s back in October 2008 it was for many reasons. Raising awareness for a condition that was very close to my heart  was one of them. But I also had a great deal more to learn about it. I feel that as well as give something I gained so much more from writing this blog . It was a wonderful thing to have found and connected with so many others that like me were on a roller coaster of ups and downs when facing a world that so many other people were yet to understand. I guess I kind of made it my goal to raise awareness for ASD. My child and many others needed to be understood.  Even if the blog only reached a few people and them few gained a better understanding at least that was something. Well  I really can’t ask for better support with the blog . Over the last 16 months we have had huge numbers of readers and many other blogs and sites have linked up to us or added us to their listings. I really am grateful for this:)

Well It’s been sometime since the blog had a monthly feature. I was so busy with the pregnancy and stuff  that sadly the Big interview had to stop. I really do miss it! and for this reason have decided to bring something new to the readers.

MUMS TELL IT LIKE IT IS!

The idea for the feature came to me when I was reading some of the many comments left on the blog by other parents. Each month I want to hear from a parent of a child on the spectrum this will be their chance to get heard and reach out to others and join me in raising awareness for Autism. Each month will have a topic of conversation. Like Sensory sensitivity, Obsessive interest, Autism at school and so on. So if you want to get heard and share your story with others then here is the place to do it.

SENSORY SENSITIVITY

This is our frist topic of conversation so if anyone is interested and wants to be our first mum to tell it like it is then waste no time in contacting me by leaving a comment with a contact email address. The big interview was a great feature that did fantastic and was a real hit. I’m sure if we all come together mums  tell it like it is will do just as well.

UPDATE 20-04-10

Sorry that the a bove feature did not go ahead as planed back in March. This sadly was due to a lack of time on my part. Little man was excluded three times that month so thinks were kinda hectic. Hoping to have the first part of this feature up and posted by the end of the month.

A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY.

7 Apr

Wow I really could not of asked for a better birthday, It was perfect, Just the way I wished for it to be.

I woke up pretty early. Being the first member of the household up and about I made myself a nice cup of tea and settled down on the sofa and started to read a magazine. Just then I heard little feet making there way down the stair’s It was little man and Alice. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUMMY” So sweet, they had made me a card each and Alice gave me a teddy and little man had me a plant which he had got for me when out with my sister yesterday. What a lovely  way to start my birthday. Later that day they greeted me again with some stunning red roses. Bless um, how cute. Who ever said children with Aspergers have little feeling’s were wrong. My little man is full of them him and his little sister Alice gave me a wonderful day.

THANK YOU G AND ALICE, MUMMY LOVES YOU VERY MUCH 🙂
