6000 euros is a fair bit more than what I payed, around 2500, still not cheap. I wonder if it's more expensive with children, perhaps they need/want more interview time and tests to assess them? /Mats I'd say it's actually less, especially if it's classic autism. They knew within one minute he was ...

The label that comes first for us all is human being. :heart: I had my assesment right after Christmas and got diagnosed with Autism in January. Really quick process, due to that I did it privately and not via Vårdcentralen etc. I had had suspicions of Autism for some years, since my son has a diag...

I would definitely go as far as saying liking trains is a red flag for autism. No doubt should they include that in the DSM. Both boys are really into trains. Their cousin who is autistic is into trains. I'm not sure if it's the trains alone or the fact that they are lined up nicely after each other.

@lippe great post. You said it all. What puzzles me is why anyone would come into this forum and ask this kind of question. You don't come here for no reason. Normally you have some kind of autism connection which in turn would mean you pretty darn well know what it means taking care of kids with AS...

I also have to mention the rather huge attention gap between me and my sons. They can spot every detail while I can't notice s**t :mrgreen: It's a funny feeling when they outperform me. One quick example: Oldest son tries to say train but can only get 'trh' out while he's looking at an alphabet post...

Yes I can see your reasons for the interest in self diagnosis. ADD and ADHD are genetically linked to ASD although they are currently discrete and seperate diagnoses. ADD is primarily linked to impulsiveness and hyperactivity. It's kind of similar to neurological traits typical of our brains when w...

I think this problem has finally resolved. It took an awful lot of time for him to accept the presence of his own little brother, even though he had nothing to do with the incident. I still suspect something bad happened. The first three or four weeks he was just occupied with the iPad. Refused to b...

Both diagnosed with classic autism. I never favor one of the other. They will always come first. I think we have a good relationship. They can only show with their actions. Lots of hugging, tickling and laughing. People seem to believe autistic children only rock and bang against the wall, not bein...

Yes, he's non-verbal. I should have added more details. Guess I was to stressed up to think of everything. His younger brother is also autistic (2,5 yo) and he's not doing anything to my older son (4,5yo). However, he's getting panic attacks whenever his younger brother is getting upset. Today, for ...

In short: my oldest boy refuse to be at home. He's constantly crying and is scared to death by children like his little brother. He's panicking and wants me to drive him in the car. Once he's in the car everything is fine. It's been going on for 4 days now and he's not going to stop. I took him over...

I come from a family where my father was on the spectrum, as was his father(they did amazing things in their lives). I wound up with 4 brothers and a sister on the spectrum. I agree with your thoughts that autism appears to be genetic, rather than caused by environmental factors or immunisations. Y...

My son is ASD, I’m either ASD or ADHD or ASD (going through testing now), my middle child is ODD (undiagnosed) but symptoms, my oldest is testing for ADHD. I truly believe my son and middle child inherited from my wife’s side and I and my oldest have a form of dementia so you are not alone. The dem...

One of our member Jason Lu, wrote a book titled "Eikona Bridge". He is autistic and has a son and daughter who also are autistic. He describes in his book a very unique way he helped to teach them. I respect his ideas completely. It's very clear pictures are important to use. Kristine Bar...
