About this deal

It is very important that autistic people learn to recognise their triggers and find coping mechanisms to help reduce their anxiety. However, many autistic peoplehave difficulty recognising and regulating their emotions. Over one third of autistic people have serious mental health issues and too many autistic people are being failed by mental health services. Does your child make unusual finger movements near his or her eyes? ( For Example, does your child wiggle his or her fingers close to his or her eyes?) Answer 5

We need to harness all this evidence coming to us and marshall it to incentivise more research, more help for schools and Camhs. People with Asperger's do not have the same learning disabilities that many people with autism have, but they might have a specific learning difficulty. I found out about this book via a newspaper article and thought it was interesting because of it being a collaborative effort by schoolchildren. This is a quote from the book and is also why I'm reading books about autism. I'm reading books about autism to figure out what the hell it means to have autism and to be able to identify myself with characters. I, personally, couldn't identify myself with M. The book didn't help me with giving my autism a place as much as I had hoped. These are the main reasons why I'm only giving it 2 stars. There is however one quote that does comfort me:


For Example, pretend to drink from an empty cup, pretend to talk on a phone, or pretend to feed a doll or stuffed animal?) If something new happens, does your child look at your face to see how you feel about it? ( For Example, if he or she hears a strange or funny noise, or sees a new toy, will he or she look at your face?) The definitionof autism haschanged over the decades and could change in future years as we understand more.Some people feel the spectrum is too broad, arguing an autistic person with 24/7 support needs cannot be compared with a personwho finds supermarket lights too bright. We often find that autistic people and their families with different support needs share many of the same challenges, whether that’s getting enough support from mental health, education and social care services or being misunderstood by people close to them. We will continue to fight tomake society work for autistic people. How many people are autistic There is no official data on autism diagnoses, although the National Autistic Society (NAS) is calling for local authorities to start collecting it, as well as ending the “ autism diagnosis crisis” that sees children waiting for nine years and more for a diagnosis. Is your child interested in other children? ( For Example, does your child watch other children, smile at them, or go to them?) Answer 8

It can affect people in the same family. So it may sometimes be passed on to a child by their parents. Autistic people often have difficulty 'reading' other people - recognising or understanding others' feelings and intentions - and expressing their own emotions. This can make it very hard to navigate the social world. Autistic people may: M is a believable autistic character. She has autistic traits without fulfilling EVERY stereotype, and has specific, unique quirks and interests. For Example, does he or she look up, talk or babble, or stop what he or she is doing when you call his or her name?)Government prevalence surveys last estimated that around one in 100 people are autistic. However, because these are estimates this is not definite. Other surveys and international estimates have come up with different prevalence estimates. Most of them suggest autism prevalence is higher. The National Autistic Society thinks the UK governments should do more research into autism prevalence to find an updated figure. Until that research is done, we believe that more thanone in 100 people are autistic, which means more than 700,000 people in the UK. Does your child respond when you call his or her name? ( For Example, does he or she look up, talk or babble, or stop what he or she is doing when you call his or her name?) Answer 10 We set up the forum because there is so much energy coming forward now from parents, academics, children and young people’s mental health services (Camhs), and teachers, that we’re missing identifying this group of girls,” said Professor Barry Carpenter, chair of the forum. A novel told from the point of view of a teenage girl with autism, written by schoolgirls with autism, has been published after the students – frustrated by their experience of a world that rejects and ignores them – decided to take matters into their own hands. Professor Barry Carpenter, OBE, PhD, University of Worcester M is for Autism invites us into the world of a young woman with autism and allows us to view it through her lens. What an intriguing world we enter. This is a book to be read by everyone!

This book does a brilliant job of describing how it might feel to be an autistic teenage girl. As a dad with an autistic 10 year old daughter, I found some parts made me feel quite emotional. The story reminded me of the stress and anxiety my daughter experienced trying to cope in a mainstream primary school, before she moved to a special needs school, as well as the stresses on our family. Does your child try to get you to watch him or her? ( For Example, does your child look at you for praise, or say “look” or “watch me”?) Answer 17Being autistic does not mean you have an illness or disease. It means your brain works in a different way from other people. Anxiety is a real difficulty for many autistic adults,particularly in social situations or when facing change. It can affect a person psychologically and physically and impact quality of life for autistic people and their families. Resists cuddling and holding, and seems to prefer playing alone, retreating into his or her own world

Does your child try to copy what you do? ( For Example, wave bye-bye, clap, or make a funny noise when you do) Answer 15 It’s not an illness. It’s more a way of being. It’s your wonderful state of mind, the way you view the world. That’s not being ill.” Does your child look you in the eye when you are talking to him or her, playing with him or her, or dressing him or her? Answer 14 Does your child try to get you to watch him or her? ( For Example, does your childlook at you for praise, or say “look” or “watch me”?) This is one if the rare schools in the world for girls with ASD, I'd watched a documentary about this school lately which showed me the amazing understanding the teachers and staff had of these girls, all with ASD, but all very individual.

M is for Autism

I think it would appeal to both autistic teens and neuro typical teens as autistic teens will benefit from realising they are not alone in their anxieties and the NT teens will get an insight into just how hard life is for ASD teens. They might then gain a better understanding of the quiet geeky girl/boy in their class and know that it's not that they don't want to join in, but how hard it is for them. Inclusion is what we are aiming for.
