We are lucky enough to have help and support from Ed Davies who is the ORPA British champion, who also bulds racing quads and looks after the children who do the british championship. He will be doing all the work on Liams quad to keep him competitive.

Even though the last 4 years have taken their toll on all the family we now know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel as long as you have the energy to fight and the right support to help you.Liam always asks us if we are proud of him when he finishes his race and we always tell him 'yes' but he doesn't always realize how proud we are of him. He tells us he doesn't care if he wins or loses because he loves quad racing so much.He always used to tell us he wanted to race and we use to tell him maybe when he got older. We thought , how do you explain to children who are disabled that they will probably never be able to do what they want because of their disability, when deep down you want them to have opportunities like any other child.Liam once said to us 'who said i can't go quad racing?' it was then we realized that he always belived in himself and it was us that doubted his abilities.What we learned from this is if your child has a special interest to let them do what they love the most,because we dont know what the future holds for them, as we have found with Liam he learnt to overcome his difficulties to achive his dreams and at 8 yrs old his future is looking bright.

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!
