Would like to send my DD into school with something to talk about. She's in Reception so it has to be pretty basic. Am happy for her to 'out' her db.

Do you have the book 'my brother is different'? (I think it's called that! Available from NAS and prob amazon etc). That could be a good start point.

Otherwise any of your ds' favoured reinforcers and a chat about why he likes it (eg tape measure and why he finds it more interesting than typical toys)

Photos of him with things he likes or enjoys? Sort of like This is My Child, but 'This is my brother'.

Same conversation with DS2.

Wednesday is World Autism Day.

"What's that for?"

To raise awareness of autism.

"If I tell Learning Support, then maybe they'll let us hold a party. We can invite the whole school."

All 1600 of them?

"Yes. I might wear my gorilla onesie."

grin @ smallpolter!

and smallThreeBee that would be some party grin

My friend wrote 'My Brother is Different' (and I taught him at school)
Now a fabulous 20 yr old man with autism smile

On a side note, my DD2 did indeed do a presentation on autism and living with her brother, and it was both entertaining and informative..and not just for the other kids. It's always good to educate smile (and DD2 is now at Uni and will soon be a qualified Learning Disabilities nurse!)

Wow, love these. DD actually asked to do it which is why I feel I ought to support it.

I think the school aren't doing anything though despite their autism base.

Is the light up blue thing an autism speaks thing? [worried]
