I was directed here from a discussion regarding aspergers, and told I did not have to have a dx to join. I think I have AS and my family doctor agrees. My son has autism and that is how I came to understand myself.

Anyway hello, and I am glad to be here.

Hello and welcome. That is how many of us who are parents have come to be here. Our children were diagnosed and we learned enough about autism and Asperger's to see it in ourselves.
I have 4 children. Two of my teen sons (I have 3) were dx'ed in February and my daughter is awaiting assessment.

I hope you find the support here as amazing as I have.

(I just checked out your store on Etsy. It is so good to see another crafter. :D I macrame, knit and crochet.)

The pieces started fitting together for me when a friends son was diagnosed. Lots of us are finding out later in life.

Welcome to WP, you should fit right in :D

Thanks for the welcome :)

My son is 3 and was dx at 23 months old. I have two older daughters who are NT ages 12 and 7(maybe, I see some things in my 7 year old).


I hope to find support here too. I have always felt out of place, In "real life" and even on other discussion boards!

I make the chokers, but nothing as fancy as yours. I really like the black and pink set. They are all beautiful. :)
