Anonymity, ethics and consent 

Anonymity When I started this blog I needed to be anonymous for professional reasons. Having given up work I can now be out and proud 🙂

Ethics and consent Blogging is rather public! I hadn’t expected as much interest and interaction when I started, thinking I would use the blog more as a repository for my thoughts. For my writings to be meaningful they need to draw on my life and the people in it, mostly this will mean my son. I have discussed this blog with him, we agreed I would not use his name, and he agreed I can write about him if it helps to improve understanding and make things better for other autistic children.
