Bullying is serious. My niece nearly died because of bullying. I survived, but the ptsd and depression finally got the best of me. Bullying is abuse. Most kids, never mind ASD kids, can't deal with bullying on their own. The rational thing to do in situations like this is run. I would run from peopl...

My daughter does this too. NT 3 year olds don't usually get the difference between reality and fantasy until 4 or so. She's 10 and kind of gets it. I have a question for you. What exactly is reality, the essence and nature of reality? How can one tell what reality is supposed to truly be? Um....tha...

The major question you need to ask is what happens if you don't medicate and he keeps having seizures? I'd do some research on that, ask your doctor.

If there is Mandt or CPI training for parents in your area, it might be a good idea. Yes, they teach restraint techniques but that's not the point of the training. The important thing is they teach communication and de-escalation. I've worked with some very dangerous developmentally disabled adults ...

Is there a sensory issue with the pads? I used to work with one woman with DD who wouldn't wear pads so we tried her with adult disposable undies. That worked beautifully.

I really wish they wouldn't rely on the ADOS. My daughter can deal with the ADOS just fine, but in real life she definitely has signs of Aspergers or autism.

I hate that whole group think crap. I think that's one reason for the final meltdown at work. Three people in one office, one of whom would not shut up, does not make for a good working environment.

It's not stupid to be overwhelmed by a complex system. Do you have anyone who can make those first calls for you? Or help you do the research?

mental health services, same thing. Once I finally hit the wall I would have been in serious trouble if I didn't have some help dealing with the system. If you can get case management through your state's mental health services this is good. It's the first few calls that are the tough part. I hate m...

See if your state has behavioral health services of any kind. My state does. If so, a case manager might be helpful. I don't know if I could have done without the knowledge and help of my case manager. I did manage to get on disability, but it did take a couple of years and an attorney. In the meant...

My daughter has always loved pump bottles, squirt bottles, pouring, anything to do with water. She also likes slimy textures like soap. She'll paint the shower walls with shampoo if she gets the chance. Still does, and she's 10. I always figured there was a need to do this even if I didn't understan...

With recent health care reform there are no pre-existing condition exclusions for children.
