Pippa from StoryofMum held one of her fabulous Twitter parties , asking people to sum up their life and what their life represents, and demonstrate this into a film.

Story of Mum is an online community hosted by the lovely Pippa in which mums can come together to offload, boost confidence and talk about the up and downs of being a mum. Fabulous creative Twitter events take place and I always look forward to them. I’m not a very creative person or artistic but that is whats great about Story of Mum……it allows you to be.

April is Autism Awareness Month

20140402-000533.jpg

When children are born with FACS, they are also born of certain aspects of Autism, whether it be Aspergers, Dyspraxia , ADHD etc.
The Autistic Spectrum is a varying dimension of different developmental aspects and no one child/person is the same. Each child is unique (my daughters favourite word )

Over the next month I will bring lots of different posts relating to Autism to help spread the Awareness

FACS features on the National Autistic Society website

What is fetal anti-convulsant syndrome?
Fetal anti-convulsant syndrome (FACS) can occur when a mother has to take epilepsy medications (anti-convulsants) during pregnancy. A child with FACS may have a delay in developing speech and language or may have difficulties with social interaction, memory and attention. Some may also have other conditions, such as spina bifida.

A number of children with FACS also have a diagnosis of autism.
