An interesting talk from Luke Beardon (Sheffield Hallam Uni) on making life easier for autistic people rather than expecting us to fit in with what the predominant neurotype (his term) expects. I think it's only available until Sunday.

Oh. I think it must be limited viewing. I'll retweet the tweet with the link in it, and that'll appear on my blog (it has my twitter feed on the right of the post).

Luke is great - he was my personal tutor when I did my PGC AS.

SweetPea is struggling a bit at college. She has a week of face to face teaching and a week online. She has made some new friends, but is absolutely shattered after a day of in-college teaching. It's a combination of the effort to be sociable, the noise, and bustle, new routines. Everyone wears masks, so she is struggling more than normal to interpret social meaning. She was cuddling the dog on the carpet in the lounge earlier, and just fell asleep (about 7.30pm) She always found school tiring, but college seems to be on a whole new level. She's got a meeting with one of the support staff on Friday, so hopefully they'll be able to help a bit.

Oh WA I’m glad she has something set up. Hopefully some of it will feel easier with time.

Yes, I hope so. I'm relieved that she's open to accepting support.

Hope the same WA. My eldest is struggling with losing the changes to his A-levels. His predicted grades have dropped and that could cost him his degree course.

Oh that's difficult mr d. Hopefully the unis will be able to be flexible.
