I’m a mother of two sons, a nine year-old and a five year-old. Both of my children are diagnosed with autism, my youngest son also has a diagnosis of ADHD and dyspraxia.
Much of my blog is about my parenting experiences with my nine 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.
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!
