How do you tell the difference between being infatuated by a man who becomes your "special interest", and real feelings of love for the person? I think the two are not necessarily mutually exclusive, but I fell into this trap years ago when I married. Now divorced and aware of my aspieness, scared o...

Please consider that people on the autistic spectrum tend to have a different way of learning. This is especially true for learning music, so traditional music lessons might backfire (or at least not show as much progress as one would expect). As an example, I am proficient in about half a dozen in...

My daughter asked for a violin when she was 3. I finally bought her one for her 6th birthday. Best thing I could have done for her. Her talent and perfectionism were sometimes obstacles because she would judge herself very harshly and have meltdowns. But it was still the best thing I could have done...

I can make eye contact briefly at the beginning of a conversation but not if the conversation lasts any length of time - I find the contact too intense and it makes me uncomfortable. ^ this if you can afford it, seek another evaluation my daughter fits the criteria, and after listening to a lengthy...

I suggested to the homeroom teacher that they build a 5-behavior contract with some kind of signal system. My daughter usually doesn't realize she's being disruptive. Being that she's an 11th grader, she also has many teachers, so I'm not sure how helpful this will be. Not all staff members are will...

so, parent teachers conferences are coming up this week My 16yr old's homeroom teacher said that many teachers are complaining about her hyperactivity and restlessness. (psych explained it's a co-morbid and not ADHD. We previously tried ritalin, didn't help) She learns in a class with kids who don't...

I think that even if my kids did engage in "imaginative play", I wouldn't have remembered because as a probable aspie I don't think I would have payed attention to this as much as other mothers might. I seriously felt like I had amnesia.

I started wondering about myself when I didn't quite grasp what he meant by imaginative play. I think he meant that dolls are used as characters with relationships. I am ashamed to admit that I remember thinking even as a child that kids who "play house" are not as intelligent as I-who was busy desi...
