Yeah we pulled him out and are home schooling him with a private online program. Meaning we are paying for an organized curriculum so I don't have as much to do. We're going to have him do the Iowa tests each year and maybe some of these gifted tests too. I'd like to give him more options for later ...

My 7 year old has pretty severe ADHD and is sometimes quite annoying to other children (and adults). He is popular sometimes too. It just depends. Autistic children have gone out of their way many times to teach him social skills, shelter him from bullying, and make sure he is included in groups. He...

Congratulations! What great news!

My advice is to get in the habit right away of taking a daily walk, and doing yoga. You don't need special pregnant people yoga. The routines for elderly people are appropriate for all fitness levels.

Enjoy every moment!

Yes, when I see it I point it out to my husband and say, "LOL! Maybe someday they'll PUZZLE you out! Do you think they will find out how to get you out of your GLASS FORTRESS?!? You sure are a PROBLEM!" Then he calls me a monkey (since I am neurotypical and also not as smart as him). And t...

Or not, Kraftie. Whoever said to bring my husband with me was dead on. I needed a set of aspie-eyes to break down the situation, evidently, because those people were lying to me. I don't know why, but they were. He came home today and had not drank anything all day and ate only a handful of chips. H...

**Update for those interested** I have not pulled him out yet. We did purchase a full course load from Acellus, which is an accredited online private school, which we will either go ahead with, or taper back to use as a supplement if things work out with his school. Basically, I went in to the meeti...

I cannot thank you guys enough for the help in this thread. For years, WP has been the place I go to first when I need help and advice. There isn't a better community on Earth for kind and diverse thoughts and recommendations. I have decided to pull my son back out to homeschool him (again) AFTER th...

Fenn- Ah...these are two of my favorite books... :D :D :D I brought my two Dale Carnegies up from the basement last week and tried to discuss them with my son. His eyes glazed over. I think I will need to repackage the content to make sense to him. But it would be worth the trouble. Now that you are...

Fenn- Thank you! I am looking up those links right now. I was so lost yesterday looking up things and coming up empty. He does already have an IEP, but I don't think he is receiving his accommodations due to "Covid restrictions." In my email to the school I mentioned this and told them we ...

DW - I have requested a meeting. Very good suggestions. One of those things you suggested was actually something he had before as an unofficial accommodation, that I was never officially made aware of. His last teacher and I became friendly and she recently told me she had been letting him sit just ...

Variant - My husband and I have had the rare experience of having divorced and then remarried each other. We have each never been married to anyone else. The divorce was the mistake, I suppose. But it was helpful, too. During the time we spent as friends and not as a couple, we learned to speak to e...

My son is 7. He has ADHD, anxiety, and sensory processing disorder. He also has rough and bumpy skin, which usually is a minor issue. And he is gifted, which also is usually not a big deal one way or another. It seems like now in the second grade he is being sensory assaulted every day with sing-son...

You already have some good suggestions here, so I'll just add one more nugget. My husband is also sensitive to tooth brushing. He is 44 and has had many years of experience with this. Several years ago our dentist told him to book an extra cleaning each year and that would make up for his under brus...

Agree, get his dad to discuss this with him. If his dad is not around, get a grandfather or uncle to discuss it. If not, book him in with a male pediatrician or urologist. He is likely not giving you a good description of the problem because he is embarrassed. You are left to guess what is going on,...

It's important to put in your two cents, but you really will need to get someone outside of the home to back you up. Preferably a male, closer to his age, but an older male will do as well. My son is 7 with what seems to be rather severe ADHD. My husband is autistic and I am NT. Our son does not lis...

Firemonkey, what are you saying about ECT? I don't understand.


I had at least 2 sets of ECT with 6 per set

What did it do in your case? Did it help or make thing worse?
