  5. How do you keep ontime?

    Nice suggestion there Suzanne! I would also suggest apps if you have a smartphone, there are many apps that could be helpful for time management. They also have timers and reminder notifications build into the scheduling apps to help keep you on task. Try this one for Android https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.auticiel.timein&hl=en And this one for IOS https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/multitimer-multiple-timers/id973421278?mt=8
  6. How do you keep ontime?

    At home i use postit notes. I write down my tasks that i need to do and put them on the fridge. As i complete my tasks i take the postit off. It helps keep me focused on what i am doing so in a way helps be keep on time better.

    Brilliant thank you!
  10. How do I get a diagnosis for my child?

    Hi Melissa, Sorry to hear about the slow process for you. I am not sure if it is just crossed wires or miss information as schools can not do a diagnosis. An autism diagnosis for a child should be a multi disciplinary diagnosis with several professionals all macking their own assessments and then all coming together to make a decision. The school will be part of this but they can not alone make a diagnosis. The best thing to do is go to your GP. When you go make sure you take a list of things you have observed like behaviours of concern and other issues. When you visit the GP ensure you are clear and concise as to why you are there, which is to seek a referral for an autism assessment. The GP should then make a referral, and you will then keep content with the diagnostic team. I hope this helps. 👍
  11. How do I get a diagnosis for my child?

    Hi, our school told us they were going to do the diagnosis for autism or some assessment but nothing has happened. They keep telling us its in hand but they are so slow. Can anyone give advice around how to best get a diagnosis please?

  20. Challenging behaviour

    Beat me to it @amanda73 😉 In addition to the challenging behaviour foundation @Joanna you might want to look into antecedent control. This is looking at adjusting the environment to minimise and managing triggers. Positive behaviour support is also something to look at which is what CBF touch on in their information. Here is a good video that explains what it is.
  21. Challenging behaviour

    Hi @Joanna have you tried the challenging behaviour foundation? http://www.challengingbehaviour.org.uk they are really helpful.
  22. Challenging behaviour

    I am just wondering if anyone has any advice about changing behaviour. We are struggling to manage our sons at the moment. This is aggressive behaviour as well as general not wanting/refusing to take part in any requests put upon him. Any advice would be great!
  23. Stuttering

    I don't think it's actually related to Asperger's. My ex-step-dad used to stutter A LOT, more than anyone I've come across before & he didn't have an ASD. I tend to stutter when I'm nervous, speaking too fast, or confused, etc. Luckily, it's never been too bad & is now much better than it used to be but it still happens sometimes.
  24. Stuttering

    I've recently started a video blog, and it seems that "that" is the word I get stuck on most often, for some reason. I'll have to look into this a bit more. Do any of you have video blogs? I find that once I get beyond the initial awkwardness of talking to no one, it's actually kind of fun. I can just articulate whatever's coming through my mind without having my train of thought interrupted, and there's no pressure to get the thoughts out quickly or anything like that. I recommend it, even if you don't intend to post it to the internet. It's good for examining my own behaviour.
  25. Stuttering

    When I'm under pressure I tend to stutter. It gets slightly annoying for the listening person I'd imagine.
  26. Stuttering

    I tend to be more of a visual thinker as well. There is always a sort of translation period for me whenever someone speaks to me, or if I have to share thoughts, which leads to issues remembering and understanding directions. I do have bad auditory processing though, hard to say what is doing what... Stuttering isn't a constant issue with me, but it has and still does happen. Usually, its when I get upset/nervous about something. Like, if pressed for information, I might have a hard time getting it out if you are pressuring me. Can't get my thought together to share them in cases like that and it can result in stuttering or complete tongue lock.
  27. Stuttering

    As a fast speaker, I don't really stutter as such... It's only when I'm nervous, it tends to show.
