I’m a mother of two sons, a twelve year old and an eight year old. Both of my children are diagnosed with autism, my youngest son also has dyspraxia, dyslexia, and dysgraphia, amongst other challenges.
Much of my blog is about my parenting experiences with my twelve year old, who has had his diagnosis since he was three, but has shown signs of his autism well before then. I also blog about wider autism issues and a variety of autism view-points.
I have a law degree with honours, and a philosophy degree with honours. I’ve been a law lecturer and tutor, and a philosophy tutor. I draw on those backgrounds at time in my posts. I currently work from home as a professional proofreader and copy-editor.
In 2010 I was part of a panel discussing autism with Lindsey Dawson, on Triangle TV / Stratos, in New Zealand. My blog was also discussed by Ele Ludemann of Homepaddock, on Radio New Zealand (February 2011).
I aim for my blog to be enjoyable and informative, as well as eye-opening for those unfamiliar with autism. It will sometimes be depressing, sometimes uplifting, but hopefully always interesting. Much like autism.
Welcome to my blog!
