About

Hi – my name is Kellie.

I have two amazing children, the youngest of whom was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of four. I have also been a teacher for twenty years and have worked with many children ‘on the spectrum’. The year my son was diagnosed one-sixth of my mainstream class were children with autism. It was a demanding year, both personally and professionally.

My life has been filled with many challenging, heartbreaking and rewarding experiences – but none more so than the journey I am currently on with my beautiful son.

I have been an ‘aspiring writer’ for my whole life, but only decided late last year to do something about it. This was when I discovered there was lots I wanted to convey in words about ‘the journey’, so I wrote short stories, picture books and factual recounts about aspects of Asperger’s. Then, my professional writing course decreed that I should start a blog.

“What a perfect opportunity,” I thought to myself, and here I am.

I will be posting about my own personal experiences, and I urge you to remember that each person’s journey will be different. However, whether you are a teacher, a parent or a friend of someone with Asperger’s, or if you yourself have Asperger’s, my wish is that you will gain something from my musings.

  1. Hello Kellie. This is Gatekeeper from Abnormal Realms and I would like to thank you for the time in checking out the blog along with the feedback. I would had sent you email instead, but my provider server had crashed, so I thought to post my appreciation here. Have a good day.
