Actually at 11.30......and just seen a clip.....cannot think of her name but she was also on the programme "the Autism Puzzle"- and is an author- from what i recall her 1st sone was 'autistic' from a young age- and her 2nd son seemed fine but regressed at age 6....our biggest fear

Charlotte Moore?

I saw her on the BBC Breakfast news on Wednesday (I think!). The interviewers were full of smiles as he asked her about all the support she must get. Their jaws almost hit the floor when she told them that it's usually up to parents to arrange their own therapies. I can still remember the days when I naively thought that if a child had problems then the powers-that-be would actually help!

is that the lady who was on that programme last night? her eldest was called george wasnt he? her youngest son (jake??) seems NT. I found that programme really interesting, very eye opening.

There was a spread in the Daily Mail on Tuesday or Wednesday about the family. I don't know how she manages with them both. I was beginning to wonder if ds1 was showing signs of autism but after reading her story I'm sure he isn't.
