Have you thought about getting a trained service dog. I have heard they have those that work well with aspies, and they wouldn't bark. The other suggestion is get a puppy... puppies don't bark for a while... and when they do it is such a cute bark that he probably wouldn't be afraid of it and can gr...

Sure thing, if you ever need any more advice don't hesitate to PM me. Though you never did answer the question about whats the need? I am just curious if this is something he needs to be able to do right away or a gradual building over time. If its right away, see if you can have other forms of writ...

Sadly, it can be really hard to teach a kid with AS to write fiction. Is there some pressing need as to why he should learn to write this style. Teaching him to write poetry would be easier, and teaching him to write nonfiction is even easier then that. Kids with AS can get confused with their being...

Go the senatoral route... lie and bribe! Oh you meant how to do more then just get him to go to school. Meet the teacher, make sure she understands his IEP, and his condition. Make sure your son understands what is going to happen like his new routine and stuff. If its a new school show him around. ...

From my experience as a teacher and a previously as a student (who didn't have them) teachers either nitpick over tiny things ("well you did do (insert tiny infraction here) when you weren't supposed to"), or totally ignore them ("yeah just set there"). It is a good idea, but teachers don't use it c...

If they have never been in any amusement parks it might work best to go to a different one, a smaller one. You can't get much more crowded then Disney World.

Maybe the problem is your trying to treat him like he is 18 when hes not. I have faced this problem several times before and it has gotten me in trouble. Course next year I begin teaching so who knows what will happen. But back to him, irregardless o how he got here he doesn't seem to be 18. I know...

I want to stay away from current blogs so I can make my own blog without having to worry about other peoples opinions. It will be harder to ignore someone who just says the good things about autism if you don't see others opinions. Now I just need some aspies/auties to blog about!

I have noticed that the brag about your aspie thread got a ton of responses and I was/am getting tired of all the "there is nothing good about autism even though I have a son with asperger's who is off to pre-med" (true story) blogs. So in my infinate wisdo...
