Who says I can't go quad racing?

Even though Liam had gone to the point where he didn't want to be around other children and mentally was in a bad place, through his love of quad biking he has made new friens and been able to achive things we thought would never be possible.He has managed to overcome his fear of large croudsof people, and has got his own way of dealling with the noise of the quads .Sometimes he will wear his ear deffenders or go to the van to get away from it all.He is now eating better and sleeping in his own bedroom, he will now switch his cd player on and listen to music or a story and go back to sleep himself. To combat his fear of the dark he has a fish tank in his bedroom and we turn the lights on so he has enough light in his room so he doesn,t get scared when he wakes. We also started taking him to jujitsu which is a form of self defence which has helped stop the bulling for now. he is also doing well in school and had 2 of his poems published in books with the young writers guild.

However Liams greatest achivement is his quad racing. If it had not been for the local grasstrack club giving him the chance to race he would never have come this far. He came 3rd in the spring championship and 1st in the summer championship.We are now applying for his ACU Licence so that he will be able to compete in the nora mx championship.We were lucky enough to take him to one round where he met Stephan Murphy who is the under 21 ACU British champion and we are hoping he will be able to coach Liam next year if his schedule allows him.

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!
