My daughter once explained this to me very well...and she was only about 8 at the time. I'd noticed out loud for her that her behavior at home at that time had really taken a nose dive. At the time she had a lot of tantrums, and she began having like one every single evening. It was absolutely exhau...

I admit I still at times get "caught" in my daughter's meltdowns. If I see it coming, I make every attempt to move away from the action...but sometimes I'm simply trying to explain why something has to be a certain way...I'm generally calm about it, and things just escalate from there. I like what d...

I have a boy in my class with turrets. One of his big tics is throat clearing. When it's a transitional times (like before holidays), it sometimes gets very bad, and he's clearing his throat every two seconds. Also, the girl I drive home from school, who is only diagnosed with ADHD, does the throat ...

I can't offer any good advice really. My daughter is diagnosed with high functioning aspergers disorder. She was soooo dirty in grade school that when she came home I could tell what she'd eaten for lunch by the food on her clothes and her hands were black most days. Her teacher one day mentioned to...

I think you need family therapy... I am very lucky to have both a child psychologist I'm friends with, and a music therapist who works with disabled children. They are both friends of mine. One day I was describing a scene in which I had gotten overly angry because my daughter was being so "stubborn...

Hey...I work at a Montessori school to. Welcome! I would agree with the suggestion of helping the children in your classroom with what the above poster said. Show the correct way. Also, when I worked in the primary part of our school, we had a great teacher who did "social plays" for grace and court...

Well, I'm about your age. I have a daughter diagnosed with AS, and I have come to see over the past 5-7 years that the speech/sensory/anxiety/attention problems i had as a child were probably AS...and that my dad's sensory/anxiety/temper issues he had while we were growing up were probably AS. I thi...

Wow, great advice on here....i've learned some things. I totally empathize with you. My daughter is obsessed with computers. We didn't have one for a while, and then her dad got her a replacement computer and I'd forgotten how life is different with one. It's something I've been really having diffic...

Well...don't know if this will help but for my aspie daughter as well as a little boy I worked with a few years back who has autism, I couldn't give in. Whenever I gave in, I ended up having to do the battle again and again. It was like I'd broken the rule, and the new rule was I would always break ...

Wanted to say thanks woodpecker for responding as an asd adult who is managing life well. I'm not the originator of this thread, but as a parent I have to agree with this mom and dw mom.

That last thing seems like a deep set sibling thing though that she may not be able to get over on her own. It sounds to me, and probably to her as well, like you are kind of awesome. You do have a lot going on and I certainly can empathize that you feel right now ill equiped to handle everything. Y...

Yes, I've had to do the same thing. I used to wait until my daughter was gone for a day somewhere and go through her room. Understand please that her room was not well kept, and she doesn't like throwing away. We often had to deal with problems because of her "collecting" things....like mice. I don'...

My daughter is an aspie and she has a very odd idea about personal space. She never wants anyone innitiating hugs or touching of any kind, but will often hug at the most innapropriate times, or get really close in your face...when she was younger and we'd walk down sidewalks, she was constantly runn...

I'm not sure what the answer is here. My daughter has a distorted view of herself in certain situations. For instance, she's always said she has, "Lots of friends." But she has a different idea of what friendship means than do most people, and this is the first year she's done anything with any frie...
