About Sharon

I have a teenage autistic son. Lucas was diagnosed with ASD when he was around 3 years old. At 14, he is still non-verbal and attends a special school. My goals are for him to be independent and happy.

Upon graduation, I spent the next 16 years in the communications industry – helping to grow two independent advertising agencies; selling and marketing media. In July 2009, I decided to stop working full-time for others. Since then, I have busied myself with freelance writing projects, media planning assignments, and developing my own online retail business.

On 24 January 2011, I ‘opened’ my online store – http://www.coobabes.com – which sells my own brand of babywear. This idea was germinated a few years ago by my sister and I, and after a few false starts, bumps and obstacles along the way, we are finally in business.

As the tagline of this blog states, I’ll be sharing my experiences dealing with autism, running a small business, communication topics, and honestly, anything else I feel like writing about.
