Hello,

My name is Marie and I am currently a second-year occupational therapy student. For one of our assignements this year, we have a semester long project where we will be assessing and implmenting an intervention to a consumer in our community. My group is working with an adorable five-year-old boy with Autism. One portion of this semester project is to follow an online forum/discussion rleated to our consumer. Thus, I was wondering if all of you are okay with me reading your posts and reflecting on them to gain further insight for current and future families I will work with. All information will be kept confidential. Thanks so much.

Best,
Marie

I would suggest that there are better forums than this one for your assignment. There is not a lot of activity on this board.

Babycenter's autism boards might be a better place for you to try.

https://community.babycenter.com/gro...ctrum_disorder

There is another board for high-functioning autism as well.

I agree that this forum has pretty low traffic. I see the most traffic on some of the Facebook groups that I'm on.

Also, I will note that I see a significantly different tone and range of topics on groups that are for parents of autistic people (usually children) vs groups that are for autistic people themselves. In fact, there seems to be a higher than expected level of discord between these two groups. The reason I bring this up is that you may want to consider whether your "consumer" is the autistic boy, or his parents/family.
