Who says i can't go quad racing (part 1 )

by sharon

WHO SAYS I CAN'T GO QUAD RACING' After suffering six misscarriages I finally gave birth to a baby boy we called Liam.It was only when he was about 18 months old we started to notice he wasn't like most children his age.He had only just really started to walk, he never said many words and only repeated words he had heard from us, and he had a very poor appetite.He was constantly ill and suffered a lot of ear infections and tonsillitis, and was admitted to hospital with faecal impaction,and doctors at one point feared he had leukaemia.It turned out that due to his poor appetite he was severely anaemic, so we were reffered to a dietitian who told us what food to feed him,and she also told us to take his food away from him after a certain time, she said he would then cry for it but he never did so we ended up leaving it there for him to eat at his own pace so that he got some food inside him.

He then started playgroup and a special needs health visitor was there one day assessing another child.She noticed he had some traits that children with autism have and reffered him to a paediatrician.At the time we were going through what we can only discribe as a living nightmare with him.He would not sleep and would wake up about seven times a night.He would not sleep on his own because he was terrified of the dark and any loud noises like the cars passing the house.He was prescribed different medications to help him sleep but they didn't really work.He was never the sort of child who watched childrens programmes- he was more interested in programmes that had cars and motorbikes in them and anything to do with playstation and computers, and at three and a half was riding his own quad bike.

Book Reviews

I'm so tickled that authors have been contacting me and asking me to review their new books for them!

Please contact me if you'd like me to review yours. :)

Fiction, Non-fiction, Auto-Biographies, Instructional books, etc., I'm interested in them all. :)

For as much time as I spend researching Asperger's Syndrome this website should have thousands of pages but because my son has Asperger's Syndrome I find that the things I want to work on very often are not the things that I have to work on so I'm still not able to spend as much time on it as I'd like to.

As he heads into adulthood (he turned 20 on Dec 13 and yep I need to update some areas of the website where it has his age) I'm finding that I have even less time on my hands as I spend more time trying to master the puzzle of how to help him transition into "life after high school".

That's where Autism Tomorrow: The Complete Guide To Help Your Child Thrive In The Real World comes in.

It's a guide to help your kids after high school. You'll find parts of the book will be applicable and some won't depending on your child's current age. Although the title implies "Autism after high school" there is still quite a bit in there about what to do help prepare your child for "real life".

It's a great book!
