(A) marked impairments in the use of multiple nonverbal behaviors such as eye-to-eye gaze, facial expression, body posture, and gestures to regulate social interaction Note that you can even meet this criteria and have normal eye contact - for example a person who makes eye contact, has very little...

My current special interest is psychology. And World of Warcraft. I suspect my first interest was cats - one of our cats had a litter of kittens when I was 3 months old, and my first word was 'meowmi'. Throughout preschool age it was the rain forest. Sometime during school age I shifted to obsessing...

Well, this study found that a bunch of language-impaired English kids in French immersion, after 2 years, could speak and write English as well as similarly-affected kids educated in English - plus they knew some French, too, though much less than nondisabled English kids in French immersion.

For the person who says therapy could "take away" your childhood...what a bunch of poooy! Have you had your child in therapy? I think people watch these old videos of ABA therapy and think its a horrible thing. I've done ABA therapy. I've also watched many videos on Youtube (recently posted, by the...

He simply doesn't care about what you want to pass on to him. That's not an ADHD trait. ADHD kids care about what you're trying to tell them, but the slightest distraction makes them loose track of their words. I'm worried that you seem to take a lot of your son's behavior personally, talking about...

Do you know what is so sad about his? 5 out of the last 7 people that I've offered this to have demanded the money instead. I will feed them, but I will not support their tobacco, drug, or alcohol habits. What if they want to buy something else? Like a night at a cheap hotel, or some clothes, or wh...

I can't follow plays. I can't see or hear the guys well enough to have the slightest clue what's going on.

Movies or books work better for me.

I think there's a lot of awareness about autism, since most people I meet if I mention autism they'll say they've met someone with that condition at some point. But most have no idea what autism really is, and a lot of the information out there to raise awareness is wrong and/or hurtful. Personally,...

I also think autistics tend to be under more stress, which can trigger aggressive behavior.

One thing that really bugs me is how many people use homophobic and ableist insults on WoW. Racist insults are not tolerated, but those are. It's a double standard.

Don't sell yourself short. Oh, that phrase really bugs me. So many times when I describe honestly how I am not capable of something even if I try really hard, someone says that to me. It seems like for many people accepting that you may never be able to do something is seen as giving up, when it's ...

Another thought - take the class with him. You'll get better at fighting while he does, so if his aggression doesn't reduce you'll be able to handle it. (In fact, if your son is clumsy, he'll probably learn it much slower than most people. And martial arts can also make people less clumsy - I don't ...

For those of you who have read/are reading books about autism/helping children. Would you prefer to read a large book about a variety of autism related topics, or a series of smaller books that deal with each topic individually? I'd prefer one book, that way the information is all together and easy...

Does he have ups as well as downs? In other words, are there times that he's extremely hyper, racing thoughts, excited and happy or feeling paranoid, etc? If so, he might be bipolar. Bipolar kids don't tend to handle stimulants or antidepressants well, they need mood stabilizers instead.
