Who says i can't go quad racing (part 2 )

by sharon

He then started school and we ended up going to tribunal to get him statemented so he could have help in school, which we won even though he had not had a confirned diagnosis. eventually we had funding for him to go to the lorna wing center for autism in Kent to be diagnosed and it was confirmed that he had high functioning autism/ asperger syndrome.

Not long after starting school we had problems with bulling.He was being pushed around, hit and nearly had his nose broken.He was constantly being called names, which at one point stopped him eating, and if it had not been for a wonderfull lady we became friens with through Liams love of motorsport getting a famous rally driver to send liam a letter explaining to him how important it was for him to eat to become a rally driver he would have ended up in hospital on a drip.Also because of this Liams sleeping had got worse.The paediatrician sent a lady out to help us with the problems we were having with Liam and over the next few months she gave us training on how to deal with all that was going on. She explained to us it was not going to be easy getting Liam to change his routines.Some of the things she wanted us to do we thought were absolute madness but we persevered because we were desperate and both absolutely exhausted. To our amazement we have now got a resonable family life and most of the times are able to deal with any problems that occur, and she is only a phone call away if we need her.

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!
