Times article about Aspergers

It was in the magazine last week and was written by Sophie Walker who has also written a book about about training for marathons while raising her daughter who has Aspergers. Its a really good article & the first paragraph about a daily battle over teeth brushing got to me as thats what happens in our house.

I've got a Times subscription (posh eh?) and I've copied & pasted stuff for people before. Let me know if you want it but replying on this thread & I'll pm everyone with it in the morning.

Thank you, it would be great to see that

We have the opposite problem DS 'needs' to brush his teeth in a certain way everyday and won't shorten the routine even if he's running late for the bus smile

Er, hello everyone. That Times article was me.. I was actually a bit worried about it because the editors took all the most negative and bleakest parts of the book and stitched them into a fairly relentlessly sad piece. Life isn't entirely like that! A more positive take was in the Guardian here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/sep/30/marathon-help-daughter-aspergers-syndrome?INTCMP=SRCH

Trying again with that link: www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/sep/30/marathon-help-daughter-aspergers-syndrome

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Thu 11-Oct-12 19:23:20

Ooo, thanks for that, Soph! Welcome to the board, (if you're not a namechanger.) Stick around, will you? smile
