Given my working pattern, and being a bit of a politics "nerd", I was watching Prime Minister's Questions a couple of weeks ago and was interested to hear a Member of Parliament raising the subject of an App designed to help people with autism recognise and manage their anxiety.
I jotted down the name of the App and, with a little bit of net "surfing", have managed to track down Autistica's "Molehill Mountain" app (see link below)
As I only have access to an Android phone I'm not yet able to access it but I have received a lovely e mail from the team at Autistica to let me know that the Android version of the App will be available in a few weeks' time and that I will be receiving the first of their anxiety e mail series just as soon as they know the android launch date. I'll be sure to post another blog as soon as I have more to report but, for any of you out there who knows someone with autism or is on the spectrum themselves, it's another useful piece of information to have about the help out there.
