Hi everyone, I'm new here, an elderly newbie!! I'm mum to a 22 year old with dyspraxia. He has finished university and got a BA degree in English with History :D
I'm trying to learn how to help him in the next phase of his life... job hunting.
I'd love to meet other parents and any members in Northern Ireland, course I want to meet all the rest of you too! :)

Hello Tully, and welcome to DT. :) My name is Vicky, and I'm diagnosed with dyspraxia and Asperger Syndrome. I work in a residential college for young adults with learning disabilities, supporting them in the classroom and helping to care for them in the evenings.

I'm the same age as your son, and the job hunt is fresh in my memory. If you have any specific questions about how best to help him find work, please post them and I will answer as best I can.

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 23. 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
