I'd almost forgotten about it to be honest. Too much going on for me to deal with being on here and off in the real world. The real world sucks right now.
I added something in my opening post just above "What is Autism?" if you want to give that a read. ninja

I was just thinking of a question to post. It's almost 2am, which will make it 1am...I think *has no idea* So, it is April 1st here, so the ball can start rolling.. smile

Well...that is annoying. =/ For some reason, the file in which I saved the questions and answers from last year, mostly so I won't double up on this year, doesn't work. Bleh, I dun wanna go through the old thread to find them. D=

Right, so the 1st of 30 questions is up. And when I feel up to it, I'll go through 90 pages to find the Q&A from last year...and I'll save it in notepad this time round. >.>

ASDs are pretty common in my family, as well as other neurodiversities.

Daily Questions

Question: What are the signs you look for if you suspect your child has some form of autism and should you adopt a "wait and see" attitude, or take them straight to a doctor to diagnose them?


The signs to look out for are impairment in communication skills and social abilities, and repetitive behaviours. Also, failure to reach appropriate developmental milestones in some children, or the sudden loss of skills on others.

If you think your child has or shows some of these symptoms you should go straight to your pediatrician to get them diagnosed.

I was broken, I was chokin’, I was lost.
This song saved my life.
I was bleeding, stopped believing, could have died.
This song saved my life.
I was down, I was drowning, but it came on just in time.

I'm curious as to the reasoning behind being so adamant about getting children tested early for Autism.

This song saved my life.

I'll be back on in a few hours, either my laptop or my internet is lagging really badly, so I will check back and respond to everyone when I figure out which of them are misbehaving.

Also, welcome to my thread. biggrin
