My experience of Autism Spectrum Conditions is different to others that have written this week. Mine is that of a parent to a child on the spectrum, no doubt a position I share with many others if national statistics are to be believed.

I only got diagnosed a couple of years ago ; it came about as a result of a few issues happening at the same time. Firstly id been googling autism as I thought my Dad was displaying symptoms, then the more I read it, the more I thought oops this is actually me. This happened at the same time as I was really struggling to relate to a line manager; I was so intolerant, and so irritated by him. I couldn’t understand why none of my colleagues said anything – but me, well I could barely understand anything he said so I was always challenging.
