Our son Z has Night Terrors and they are definitely not theb same thing as nightmares. I have often been awakened from a sound sleep by his screaming in horror.

3 years old? I would guess he still takes naps during the day? You might try cutting them out or shortening their length. A soothing bath before bedtime might help also, water play often relaxes an active child. you might consider making his bedtime later too. The massage is a good idea, our 12 yo A...

I've been sitting here for the last 20 minutes trying to decide if I should make a reply. Finally thought, "Why not?" So here goes. As I read this letter I find that the teacher gives the information that you asked for regarding Nate's behaviors and social interactions and does so very well. The fir...

I am not a parent, but someday I do wish to support parents of AS kids. I am AS, but I honestly try my best to understand others and where they come from (it's hard work). So I wonder what is it that someone like me could do to support parents of AS children? What are the sorts of frustrations that...

aurea, I don't know about in Australia, but in the U.S. at the end of an IEP we are given papers to sign agreeing to the proposed Plan. I was recently told by a Special Ed teacher not to sign them until we had gone home and carefully looked them over even if we did think it was a good plan. If this ...

my NT son is only 2 years younger than his Aspie brother ( 13 1/2 & 16). I actually expect more out of my NT son than my aspie son~mostly because my NT son is currently capable of handling social situations better. in general, house rules are the same for everyone~treat others as you wish to be...

Katrine, interesting approach. I understand the age differences and ability differences and agree that with added responcibility comes added privelege. From what I can tell from your post this is working for you and I agree with you. I think you are handling a complicated situation very well. mom2ba...

No, kd, not wierd. Z, my 11 yo Aspie is obsessed with learning anything and everything at school, gets upset with reviews because "why do we have to talk about this, I already know it". But, at home, he will focus for hours, if we let him, on his video games. We forbid viddeo games on school nights(...

I am also very actively trying to teach him how to be funny, and/or even a little sarcastic. Having those skills really saved my older son when he was going through middle/high school. Kris Kris, this is absolutely one of the best things you can do for your son. We worked with Z on this and he love...

Personally, i'd go for a post that says, "Welcome. Aspies post here. They are blunt, direct, and do not hide the negative statemens inside warm, fuzzy talk designed to make you feel better. Until you get used to that, they will unintentionally upset you. Have fun." But I think only aspies would fin...
