Building bridges for autistic children Dear Sibylle. I have just signed up for the Mastermind group again. Opening up your online library is of course the absolute pro argument. There are so many helpful tips and experiences on so many of our difficult topics at home that I can now always use and look up. The monthly exchange in the group always gives me strength.

So many lights have come on for me

I really enjoyed the last Mastermind group. I gained so much from it. Your observations and descriptions were really brilliant. I also recognized so many things and so many lights came on for me. I think that's really, really important. And I also noticed in the others, in the therapists, that things were somehow really bubbling up there. And it was interesting to see what kind of image they had of autism or what was taught. And I found it really, really exciting. And for me, this aspect is always very important: Yes, how do we do that, so that we bring them more into our world? I mean, I can see it with my own daughter. I have to grab myself by the scruff of the neck again and again and some things annoy me. And then somehow I see again that she is simply self-sufficient, unable and unwilling to communicate. And that does a lot to me.
