Sharon - it all started because of a friend of mine who has an autistic daughter. She wanted to know more about it but all the sites she found were either too basic or they explained things in technical terms that she couldn't understand.

I did some research and put together a few documents for her. I also sent them to another girl I know whose son is autistic. She liked them and said she wished there was something like it on the net. Well, what is any self-respecting rodent to do? I did further research and spoke to some experts in the field.

The more I looked into it, the more I realised that there really is a need for a site that goes into detail and explains technical terms in simple language. That's something I'm good at - explaining complicated things in a simple way.

My site explains genetics and mutations, and how some theories explain autism in those terms. I go into the psychological theories such as Simon Baron-Cohen's "Extreme Male Brain" theory. Then there are the physiological and environmental theories. I've also addressed the issue of MMR vaccine in what I hope is an unbiased way. I hope my explanations of technical terms will enable others to read the more scientific sites with a better understanding.

I've got a dictionary which pops up an explanation of a word if you click on it.

I managed the genetic and psychological sides fairly easily, but the environmental and, especially, the physiological issues were a nightmare. I was having to find definitions of technical and medical terms in practically every sentence I read.

So far I've got just over 100 pages and I'm, not finished yet. I still have the physiological issues to finish off. I also want to add a Wiki feature to allow visitors to upload their own stories, a forum, and, maybe, a chatroom. Plus, I'm collecting links to other sites about autism as well as support groups and equipment suppliers.

When I lived in Denmark I had a friend who's son had autism. He hadn't been diagnosed then but I could see this boy wasn't just a difficult child as they thought. Eventually they got the diagnosis and the mother was empowered by it but the father was destroyed. Everyone I've met with an autistic child has had to fight for information, help and well just about everything.
I work with a lot of home educators and a lot of autistic children are home educated. It has become an interest of mine too especially as I think my eldest son is low on the autistic spectrum.
Anyway, you might want to try the education otherwise website as I think they may have information for parents with autistic children.

I know their site, and it's very useful. However, what I'm doing is pulling everything together in 1 place. As far as I can tell there's nothing like it yet.

You're right about ASD kids being educated at home. There aren't enough places in specialist schools so it's a necessity.

Angie & Sarah said exactly the same about having to fight to get any information or help.

They're worth blabbing about. In fact her whole frame is decidedly blabworthy.

Agreed. Maybe not so in a "Tiscali must die" thread.

"Tiscali must die" is an anagram of "Jessica Alba is a babe"

(That may not be strictly accurate)
