oddly enough, it wasn't until we got a diagnosis in December that I felt much hope. I felt like the therapist who referred Madison for a diagnosis...who could 'see' her...what a good kid she was, that she was 'different' but not messed up or anything like the kids she was used to seeing in her pract...

in K...my daughter had a very persisitent bully. I made all the mistakes, telling her to ignore him...read a book...etc. But finally I wrote a letter to the busdriver. When I reported it, the school responded quickly and decisively. Other mother was called, she called and apologized...and so did he....

I have an only child. She went through this period as well. We got a dog :). She's become very close to a dog, but becomes easily frustrated with him. My brother, who I believe had untreated as and difficulty relating even in his family, apparently had some very not good run-ins with a younger siste...

Huh....my daughter has never been anything but loud. :)..There is a boy in our classroom who we believe may have aspergers, who only talks loudly. You can't even get mad at him for it, because he truly doesn't realize his voice is loud. Neither does my daughter. I think it is a sensory problem....as...

Until I was ten I only had two real hobbies, reading and pretending I was an animal. I ran on all fours until I was at least 8. I think I was pretty good at imitating various animals. I read tons of books about different kinds of breeds of dogs, cats, horses, even cows, and all African cats. When I...

My daughter went through a stage of dogginess. She would lick her food off her plate unless i insisted she NOT do this. She would also to an irritating degree go around the house as a dog much of the time for a while. Now my niece (who's adopted from the foster system) is going through this. Last ti...

There are other examples as well, including years of forced swimming because she wanted to do that, and being put down because I didn't want to learn a musical instrument like she did. The list goes on and on and to this day, I'll never understand why my sister was such a gold standard to them and ...

Until I started taking an ADHD med last year, I loved to occasionally eat chalk...liked the feel of sand in my mouth. I still love to eat snow when it snows. I also have a bad ice chewing habit. It's called pica when you eat things that aren't food. But it doesn't sound like you are eating, just che...

My daughter who's twelve and in middle school like your son was recently diagnosed with Aspergers. In sixth grade she was diagnosed with ADHD, and that didn't go over very well...so after a lot of thought and advice from the psychologist, I proceeded to have a 'different kind' of discussion about as...

I think my mother cried because she was always more concerned about my reputation than I was...and probably my personal safety as well. she also didn't like that I didn't wear dresses, and I think that caused her a lot of grief a long the way. When I was last to see her she commented to a cousin tha...

We have this happen. It's a problem of too many questions. I don't know if it's the same for you....but I find if I ask my daughter too many questions, too quickly...(and in this case, the questions were pretty annoying), she will do just that. Explode. Particularly if the questions are really a thi...

This if my first post here...so I hope i do it right. My daughter was recently diagnosed with aspergers after years of my trying to figure out why she wasn't 'the same' as the other children I work/ed with. This thread interested me because of the lying issue. What my daughter told our psychologist ...
