This may be because of scotopic sensitivity (Mears Irlen syndrome). It makes white glare and other colours and you can get night-blindness too. I have it. I find reading on a background colour other than white easier. You can get overlay things and special lenses in your glasses if you wear them tha...

OP are these regular kids or autistic kids?

One thing I would say, is it's a fine line to walking between being playful and losing their respect. A little fear in a child is no bad thing. Children sense weakness and hone in on it!

As your daughter is not yet 18 you still have parental rights. Here is some information: http://www.autism.org.uk/living-with-autism/at-home/caring-and-planning-for-the-future/parents-of-adults-with-autism-your-rights.aspx If, at any time, you are not happy with the services provided and feel that t...

In this video (sorry to people who don't have high speed/broadband internet) the woman seems to be saying autistic people are right brain dominant.... but in my short time on this board I have encountered many who seem to be highly left brain dominant. I am curious how many people here think they a...

Despite having an "extreme male brain" gender, I look feminine and am not gay. I do remember once I used to go to a particular nightclub with a friend and she told me the doorman/bouncer asked her if I was a lesbian because I never used to take men home at the end of the night like some of the fema...

Hi, My partner and I are absolutely at our wits end with a residential home which our daughter is in full time. She's 17 and only began self harming a year ago when she arrived there, and has attended hospital numerous times at one point every night. Obviously we have raised concerns throughout, bu...

I don't know if it could be that, but it's not about needing the words repeated, as even when I have explained something again she still hasn't got it. The S&L assessor said she has really excellent concentration as well, so it's not that she's not focusing enough on what you said. It's somethin...

[yawn] (I have BTW read anecdotal evidence on another autism forum, but I don't want to post a link to another forum on here, this is meant for discussion only, boo-hoo if you are scared.) Wow, that's a mature response. I'm not upset myself, you have obviously not read the replies from other member...

It seems to be be the main component of this thread by the OP too. Yes, this entire thread is nothing but trolling. As a "WP Supporter" I would have thought you would have better understanding of the site rules. Malicious accusations of trolling are against said rules , and you are utterly incorrec...

There is also premature senile dementia, although I don't know the association between that and ordinary aged dementia (or autism). Common use is 'early onset dementia' as described previously in this thread, the phrase used above is seen as confusing. Regarding the rest of your thread. I really fe...

Why don't you be more strict, that's why [child] is being naughty? Why don't you ignore [melting down child]? Why do you think you have Asperger's? Why can't you manage (reference to coping with the multi-tasking demands and responsibilities of life) - everyone else does? Why do you have to have it ...

That's pretty insightful what you said about concepts actually. Because I do think it's not the words she has issues with it's the concept of something she doesn't understand but because she can't explain what she doesn't understand, I am left flummoxed as to why she doesn't get it and I can't help ...

I just heard from my 8yo daughter's S&L assessor, she was assessed at school and she has such a good vocabulary that she is in the age 14-18 range!! OMG I can't believe it. What a clever little autie she is. She loves maths and is great at that but has always struggled with handwriting and liter...
