Im sorry

I have totally been neglecting you the last few months :(

This is because i am at the moment interning in the US and also doing reserach and doing a disertation,..ahh excuses excuses!

So i promise to try and be more regular for my admit-ably small band of followers in the hopes that i may get a bit more out there for the siblings!:)

At the mo, what is really exciting is i am in America for the presidental election. Now i dont know if any of you guys follow politics but i relised a few years back that if you want something to happen for autism politians are the people you need to bug.

As much as you might hate them not believe in them..if you can find someone with a bit of compassion and morality (they do exist) they can get stuff done.

Which is why organisations and groups such as the wonderful organization Autism Speaks are really eagerly following this election, hopeing that children and families will get the recognition and the support that they deserve.

Myself, im an Obama girl (be it an irish one)

So the debate is sometime i hope to be posting on this blog and hopefully informing people about the political consideration and approach towards autism in the US..fingers crossed!

Light it Bluuueeee

Happy Autism Awareness Day everyone!

This is such an amazing campaignJ I hope everyone was wearing their blue todayJ I’m actually a little disappointed I didn’t make more of an effort!! Next year it will be blue nails, blue lights, blue cupcakes hell I will even paint the walls ..wont my other half be happy with me;)

And this face book page is so lovely it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy insideJ And a little teary:0
I always get really emotional on days like this. I suppose it’s obvious that i would when there is such a focus on something that is so personal and emotive to me. Also I love love how important this day has become world wide – so positive for raising autism awareness.
Ad for those who are looking for a few basic facts about autism, the National Autistic Societies web is always a fantastic resource

New Diagnostic Criteria

Hey all

Check this out
This is an interesting discussion on the new revisions to be made to the diagnostic criteria.
Although im still finding it all a little bit vague and also worrying that people with classice autism may be affected.
