About Me

I am the author of each of the stories on this website and manage the site.  Yep, there's some bugs in the system and I am working on them.  I am not a website ninja - so have a bit of patience while I figure it all out.

Matt is my youngest son, moderately to severely autistic.  He has speech, but difficulty using speech, so we communicate heavily on the more subtle forms of communication.  Matt is learning to use the Internet and Facebook as a form of communication, but he is very wary of it, so it's not often.

I really enjoyed your post on "self-stimulation". I think it comes from the world of mental health and institutionalisation when these people had nothing to occupy their minds the way an Autistic person would do.

I put in a forums area and my like button quits working right - coincidence?
