    I've not seen any of this programme yet but it seems to be doing a great job of getting people talking about autism and helping to raise awareness. So interesting to read about your experience – and particularly the point about having to pick your battles with regards to meltdowns. From an outsider perspective it can be too easy to be judgemental without really understanding the situation – it will certainly make me think twice before making those snap (usually internal) judgements. Wandering must be quite worrying though even when you do learn to live with it.

    Brilliant blog, will be sharing everywhere. Lots rings true for us too, but it's great to highlight that everyone is different and has different needs. Loving all the autism awareness 🙂

    Great post, I saw little bits of each of my own 3 children in Joe last week all at different times. I think its imporatnt that people understand how vats the spectrum is and how different we all are 🙂

    Thanks for sharing – particularly like how you've drawn the similarities and differences to your experience. I find myself getting irritated at the A-Word because of what the family are like! I feel sorry for Joe being bewildered in the midst of that!

    Really great post Anne. I really hope Hayden never starts to wander off for long periods of time. Ten minutes missing in Morrisons had me almost hyperventilating on Saturday. Thank you for linking up to #spectrumsunday I really hope you join me again this week. After a laptop malfunction (I spilt my wine) the linky will be live later today xx
