Thanks, bowlingbun, for your quick reply. The plan was for her to move into her own place in spring this year, then lockdown happened. I've got all the contacts I need so will set the wheels in motion tomorrow. The comments about your son are very encouraging to me. You must be very proud of him. Th...
Hi all, I'm 60 & live with my daughter, 31. She was diagnosed at 3 as having infantile autism. She's worse than she appears to be. She's very able, having a part-time job, her self-care & life skills are good, too. She's got various scientific obsessions & has an unbelievable memory for facts & figu...
Hi all, thanks for your replies, sunnydisposition point taken & names changed I'm so tired it just didn't occur to me ...duh!

Normally I do a border of illustrations, but I don't think this needs anything other than a butterfly. She used to call them rainbow-jiggers when she first started to whisper words, it ...
Hi all and thanks for sharing, greetings Elaine - I did try cross stitch a few years ago (inspired by my master cross stitcher sister-in-law) but you've either got it or not...I'm the latter lol However, I do like calligraphy so I'll take up your lovely suggestion in that way. I know raising and car...
I've been caring for my autistic daughter for 27 years, there's been just the two of us the last 12. I have issues which I'd like to keep private, but as a result we care for each other. Written off as a youngster, I invested a lot of time and effort in her education, but I never thought I'd have to...
