http://www.nas.org.uk/ as well for background

The first link is to Luke Jackson's website, he was the commentator in the TV Programme My Life and Autism http://www.bbc.co.uk/ouch/tvradio/autism/

There are also a few people who post on the BBC Ouch! messageboard with high functioning Autism who might be happy to help although be careful it can be a very touchy board to post to, post a request for help but whatever you do avoid sounding like you pity anyone on the board - more than a few AB (able bodied) people looking for help with research got flamed for approaching the members as if they deserved pity.

i once heard autism described as "severe male-ness of the brain"
i.e. they are unable in severe cases to understand the idea of emotion, but can be extraordinarily good at logic beased subjects like maths etc. opinions?

It's a slow board (nowhere near as fast as this and with many more restrictions) - leave it for a day or so and then check back...like I say it can be a hard board on outsiders so don't raise your hopes too high - replies will all depend on what sort of day the people there have had (although last I checked it was all looking quite happy & peaceful) - and looking at your post I think you've hit exactly the right tone.

One problem is that posting website addresses is banned on the BBC boards (stupid) but giving some hints as to what to search for in google isnt so you might get some good ideas.
