Jodi Shaw

I've lost count of the times I've been asked when I'm writing Jodi's next true story book. It seems you've found my books on autism and life with an autistic child both amusing and educational.

It's had its moments!

The short answer is - "I'm not", but then I never intended to write any! They came about because of peer pressure.  My third book
Mercury Poisoning - It's Not In Our Heads Any More - Jodi's Journey Goes On was released Christmas (2007).

Jodi is really growing up, shaving every day and generally turning into a handsome young man. He's still autistic in many ways and incredibly "normal" in others as you will find out if you get my books.

I am currently writing some poems about Jodi, and eventually there might be a poetry/story book combined.

A Note Of Caution

We think we have Jodi's epilepsy under control now. He last had a seizure in July 2006 which resulted in an ambulance trip to the hospital where he spent three days on oxygen. One thing we've found out is you need to beware of
Evening Primrose and Star Flower Oils as Jodi’s specialist said there is some evidence both exacerbate seizures.

You need to bear this in mind if you give your child Omega-3 Fish Oil Supplements.

Check the ingredients!

Great News!

Jodi is now in college! (2008)

He started a three year course at an amazing residential college in September 2008 and settled in straight away. He's getting on REALLY well.

When those so called "experts" told me all those years ago I'd send him away - they were right, but not because I had to. Instead, I wanted to.

It's a brilliant opportunity for him to experience and enjoy life so he can continue to be the best he can be.

I am so PROUD of him.

Who knows - there might be another book to come after all.  How does, Jodi's Journey Through College, sound?


Another Update (2011)

Jodi got on really well at college and as he’d gained some form of independence it was decided it would be best if he continued to live away from home when his three years there was up.

Luckily, two other lads who’d been to the same school as him and had left at the same time as him, were also looking to continue their independent journeys, so they all moved into rented accommodation together.

It worked well.

All three were totally different, but looked after each other in their own way, so YES - I did write another book about Jodi.  The fourth one is called, Supported Living - Jodi’s Journey Moves On
