I first noticed something was different about my middle child Mikey, when he was almost two years old.

He wasn’t quite hitting the milestones other children his age were reaching and although I’m not one for comparing, some of his differences were becoming unavoidably obvious.

Family members and friends often commented on his avoidance of eye contact, his inability to play with other children and they assumed he was deaf.

Portage was first mentioned to me by my health visitor, just after my middle son Mikey turned two. I had never heard of it before and to be honest unless you’ve had Portage I don’t think many people have.

The National Portage Association describe Portage as:

PORTAGE AIMS TO:

  • Work with families to help them develop a quality of life and experience, for themselves and their young children, in which they can learn together, play...

About Mikey

My middle born son Mikey is very selective about who he gives the time of day. His older brother Jack and younger sister Nicole however, are much more open to entertaining anyone who crosses their path.

I want to talk about something slightly outside of Autism and Mental Health today, although very much related to the subject of Hidden Disabilities. I haven’t shared much on my physical conditions, all of which were diagnosed a few years ago, although much like my Autism, its been something I have struggled with under different...

I could start with the obvious and say I always felt different from everyone else and how I got diagnosed and my journey there but this is not what this is about. This is about my life for the past year and perhaps some advice about how to deal with unhealthy environments. For context my conditions include ASD, tourettes syndrom...

It’s half 3 on a cold Wednesday morning and I’m typing this up as I can’t sleep as my head is all over the place right now.

See I’m the girl who can’t take a phone call without shaking like a leaf. I can’t speak on the phone if I don’t personally know you. I used to be able to phone any random number and talk for hours. Funny how...

Maintaining a healthy routine can be an essential aspect of daily living when on the Autistic Spectrum, it can lead to stability and make life more bearable. Although it can also make life very complicated and build very big walls that can limit what someone is able to cope with. What many don’t understand is why it’s so importa...
