Try to keep the talk with him as clear and factual as possible. Point out his strengths - especially things which are likely to be due to the fact that he's an aspie. Have a few good sites/blogs/books for him to check out (a few have already been mentioned). It's worth while checking them out yourse...

A lot depends on the coach/teacher. My son is 5 1/2 and has been doing krav maga for 4 months now. I was quite doubtful at the beginning that my son would stay focussed the whole time and cope with the discipline involved. When i spoke to the coach at the beginning, he said that over the years he ha...

Although my 4 year-old twins are very close and mostly play very well together, my NT daughter is gradually getting more and more frustrated and sometimes angry at her twin brother who has PDD-NOS (behaviours which are ASD-related). For example, she will often complain that sometimes he just ignores...

My son who is nearly 4 often mixes up his pronouns, especially "I": and "you", and nearly always when he's excited. It recently led to quite a funny (and somewhat embarrassing) situation when he started shouting at the top of his voice in public "Daddy, you farted! You did a really stinky fart!" (My...

Great to hear you've found someone who specializes in ASD's - the first doctor sounded completely incompetent and obviously has no experience with ASD. About organizing your son's day - perhaps try setting out his day in a chart as a visual reminder, and stick it on the wall, somewhere where he will...

Good luck with the appointment As far as other peoples opinions - it can sometimes be frustrating when they don't see what you see and tend to smooth everything over, as if your worries are nothing. They usually mean well - just always stick to your gut instinct. I was told by 3 specialists that my ...

A few things to keep in mind: Although many kids with ASD have a number of similar behaviours and difficulties, they also have many differences. Yes, it is important to work on language and communication, but it sounds like your son may also have sensory issues. If that is the case (which is with th...

My son went through the same stage of asking "what is it?" to everything when he was three. He's now 3 and a half and although only 6 months have passed, he rarely does this anymore. He used to follow up with a similar line of questioning. For example - he'd say "what's this?" (a cucumber) then he'd...

I can totally relate to the frustrating comments of "have you tried..." from people who have no idea. Or comments which used to annoy me - now almost make me laugh, such as "but he looks so normal"

Does anyone ever experience anxiety or confusion when waking up. My son often finds the transition from sleep to awake quite distressing. He needs someone he knows to be in the same room - usually physically near him, and he needs to stay in bed/on the sofa (wherever he's fallen asleep) in peace and...

My 3 and a half year old son does experience echolalia - sometimes single words, sometimes phrases. He also mimicks accents. He tends to mimick the accent of whoever he's talking to. If I am talking to him in English he will speak to me in more of a British accent, whereas if someone speaks English ...
