I’m sitting at my desk at work.
It’s just after 4pm on a Thursday in the second week of August in 2016. The daylight is fading and the sky is slowly turning purple with flecks of pink. I’m becoming more aware of the fluorescent light above me and the hum of the air conditioning system continues to pulse right through me as it has all day. My heart rate rises and I start to sweat.

Living with Autism requires understanding and support. One tool is to discover insights and techniques others found helpful. Sharing of experiences covers what helped, what didn’t, and why. Conversations are wide ranging – from acquiring verbal skills to effectively dealing with school bullying; from better understanding medical ‘speak’ to tips on activities and interaction methods that worked for a parent.
Sharing information is the basis of an active, living and breathing support system for the autistic individual, parents, family, teachers, and friends. We all need it – and we all have something to contribute. Let’s get talking and sharing.
