  • Parent Autism Blog

  • Welcome to the parent autism blog at Autism Epicenter. This is an online journal written directly by parents of children with ASD. We'll share the triumphs and challenges as well as anything else that comes to our minds as related to Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

    Two parents post here:

    - Shane
    Autism Dad and the founder of Autism Epicenter. His son was born in 2002 and diagnosed in 2004 with classic autism.

    - Sherri
    Mother of "Sir Dantes". He was born in 2007 and diagnosed in 2009. "Ms. Maxie" is her typical daughter (doesn't have autism). Sherri works full time and blogs because she finds it to be therapeutic.

Thanks for taking the time to write this up. We're right behind you on making the purchase for our son. I've been blogging a bit about him if you're interested... Search for autism-and-the-brauns. My next post with be about the iPad and some further thoughts on what apps are needed for a boy like mine.

Here in the UK Autreach IT is setting up to take into care homes for adults on the autism spectrum personalised i-Pads with Voice Output and other apps installed, along with a training package led by autistic adults who have the necessary skills - there are plenty such people already! Wish us luck - we are still seeking funding... All ideas welcome! I have ticked the "allow message form" box below so people can contact me via that.

I'm finding the possibilities extremely exciting! I find even my little elegant ipod touch virtually magical - any time anywhere I can play a little video of my cat purring on my lap or my grandson smiling at me. And that barely scratches the surface of what these devices can do...
