Postby differentgirl » Thu Jun 18, 2009 12:00 am

Hello everyone! :D
I'm Olivia,19 yrs old.
I found out I'm dyspraxic just a couple of weeks ago...
Found out about this website through Victoria Biggs' book- Caged in Chaos....which is a brilliant book..please do read it if you haven't already...
I'm hoping to offer help and advice if I can and also find out how to make this painful yet gifted journey of life more beautiful!

Hey I'm Dan I'm 18 and was diagnosed when I was 7. I have also read Caged in Chaos. The writer of the book frequents this forum so you will get a chance to get into dialogue with her if she visits this thread. :)

Enjoy your stay.

PS; I like playing piano, writing my own music, programming and general computer stuff

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 22. I have both dyspraxia and Aspergers Syndrome. I live in Surrey in south east England and I work as a support worker in a residential school for children with severe and complex epilepsy and other neurological and physical disabilities. It is very challenging but I enjoy it and I am getting better at it now! I love animals (I have 3 cats at home), the Internet, learning about other cultures and languages, reading and listening to music. I hope you enjoy the boards :D

Welcome to DT, Olivia :)

I'm Danni, I'm 23 years old (feels weird typing that) and I have Asperger's Syndrome. I'm in an autism specific classroom at college, learning life skills and next year I'll be doing an IT course. I'm a web server administrator, a mummy (my daughter lives with her grandparents) and a computer geek. I also love reading, the colour purple and penguins.
