It must be so confusing for autistic children living in Ukraine with their families.  How do you keep a child like my son Angelo with minimal verbal skills and significant sensory processing condition quiet if you needed too for safety reasons.

How do they explain to their loved ones they can’t have music, TVs use their iPad or even switch lights on in the house.

It’s just too awful to think about. I cannot even imagine what these families are going through.

Praying for Peace

Please see some useful information and links below that may help.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Autism Anglia of which I am Ambassador by sharing these useful resources:

How do I talk to my children about the situation in Ukraine?

About Paul

Paul Isaacs is an autistic trainer, speaker, consultant and blogger. He has co-authored several books including Life through a Kaleidoscope and Living through the Haze. Paul was branded as a “naughty & difficult child” at school. He was classically autistic and non-verbal due to speech articulation difficulties. He had complex sensory issues and appeared both deaf and blind. He gained functional speech around the age of 7 or 8 years old.

Paul went through the mainstream school system with no additional help or recognition of his autism. Consequently, he did not achieve his academic or his social potential and had very low self-esteem. At age 11, Paul was referred to the children’s mental health service with childhood depression where he was regarded as “developmentally underage” and having speech problems.

As an adult, Paul had a string of unsuccessful jobs, and his mental health suffered. He developed both Borderline and Schizotypal Personality Disorders in early 2007. He was referred to mental health services and misdiagnosed with “Asperger traits with a complex personality”, which did not satisfy Paul or his family.
