Some kids need to "de-school" for a while if they have begun to see learning as negative because of their experiences. So for those kids sometimes it is better to just let them unwind and not be so regimemented. If they have an obsession then maybe go with that and try some unit studies around that....

I could see using them for certain situations - but it seems like they are used for some very common things that shouldn't need them. I generally find them distracting and harder to memorize than the actual info. Same for the songs - that is just annoying - lol. My daughter had some bizarre math son...

What I find extremely interesting about this Wrong Planet: a lot of people here act…behave no different to everyone else “out there” in the non-disordered world, and I’m not speaking of people who throw useless and meaningless insults; I’m speaking of behaviour that appears perfectly “normal” [and ...

If your son requires no extra assistance in a regular classroom then how can they refuse to allow him into the class. I don't think you can just look at someone and say they have AS and refuse based on the label alone. If he has trouble in the class with behavior then they can ask that he not attend...

Does anyone else get puzzled by mnemonics. I was watching a science channel and they are having people make up new mnemonics since Pluto is no longer a planet. Is it really that hard for people to memorize the order of the planets to begin with (lol). Is it honestly easier to remember a silly phrase...

Interesting - just like when an incident occurs some question if there was an "official" diagnosis. Like that seems to imply some kind of paperwork filled out or something. Basically though I think it just means that a medical professional has put down in writing somewhere (like in your patient file...

Even though it was a requirement I was excused from PE in high school because of my anxiety and depression. As someone else mentioned - it can be hugely stressful for uncoordinated Aspies and those with sensory issues.

I have dysthymia but with that it is hard to tell when you feel energetic if that is just being normal. I know I had a reaction to SSRI's before where I was really agitated while taking them. Some people think they can trigger bi-polar in people who already have it - others think that there is a spe...

I have a tendency to laugh (sometimes really uncontrollably) when someone is yelling at me and it has made the other person react even more angrily. I also laugh when I get upset or nervous.

This is why I don't like to go to the movies by myself. Someone will see a person by themselves and assume they want somebody to sit by them. Kind of like how in an empty parking lot someone will park right next to you.

I also have a startle reflex - especially with loud noise next to me. So of course once someone figured that out it became funny for them to keep clapping loudly and watching me flinch uncontrollably. Ha-ha. I also had a neighbor say Hi very loudly when I didn't know they were there - I completely w...

abbr - Besides AS and OCD there is also OCPD (Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder) - and from what I understand they prefer to R-U-L-E their entire domain. I have OCD and while I certainly have lots of issues one of the things the psychiatrist asked my husband one time was if I insisted on con...

I also used to pick weird things out about those shows. Most importantly though - I often think kids must wonder WHY they can't see what is blatantly right in front of them. Like asking stupid questions about where is the volcano - or where is the clue with the big paw print. I think these shows tal...

Yes and one psychiatrist I saw for several years would even make me so upset I cried a couple of times after leaving his office. I wouldn't be like boo-hoo crying but just out of sheer frustration. It was like being bullied really. He would ask all these questions and not allow me any time to respon...
