My son has aspergers. This is only one problem but he wont wear underwear cause of sensory disfunction associated with aspergers. I was hopeing for any suggestions on how to help him get over this. School is complaining and I'm tired of being questioned from the principle. I have tried for the past four years to beat this issue but I feel I have lost this battle years ago.

hello i'm an irish mom with a child with asberger and to be honest just like your normal kids watch your child if there is a toy or game these children like playing take it away from them. you'll hate yourself and feel like a monster but a child with asbergergers learns fast that they shouldn't do what there ma tells them not to its our job to keep them safe and if we have to feel crap to do that well welcome to parenthood

my daughter is a teen. She has not been diagnosed with Aspergers as I have never sought out a diagnosis. She has many symptoms that are described but is doing incredibly academically and has some friends that feel they are close to here although she does not feel close to them. What would be the benefit in the label? She would just be more aware that she is different. Just wanting to know as I'm wondering if I should talk to her about it. Don't want to hurt her...what if she isn't. then she would think I was boxing her in.

I have Aspergers, ADHD, and hearing problems. I simply see a psychiatrist every 2 weeks to help me with it. I am very socially successful, and am among the most popular kids in my school.

Is there anyone out there who has grown Asperger children? I have undiagnosed Asperger special needs adoption twins. They are 19. A granddaughter and grandson. We didn't know about Asperger's until the late nineties. We knew there was some kind of genetic defect but not certain what. They both know they aren't like other children and have social skill problems. Our granddaughter is diagnosed with CAP-D (Censory Autotory Processing Disorder)which most teachers and even nurses are not familiar with. She is also ADHD and possibly other disorders. She is a very sweet young lady, but very opinionated and outspoken. She doesn't care who knows her disabililties. She is in freshman year college and earned scholarships in high school, having a 3.0 GPA. She knows what she wants to do after college. However, we aren't sure if she will be able to keep a job. She likes being alone in her room with her door closed watching TV or reading a book.

Cont'd: (Asperger twin grandchildren). We have had to stay behind her to be social. She has no problem talking with adults, etc., but some of the facial expressions and off the wall statements are a little embarrassing. She has to be constantly instructed to remember to do everyday normal things. She is such a picky eater that she has her own things to prepare for a meal. (See next cont'd page)

We have been through so much trying to get help for both of them. Her brother is so OCD I can't even find anything to read that describes him and his behaviors. Even though he can be very nice and caring, he has no respect for authority. He has a very high IQ, but now tests average or slightly above. He says his mind races all the time. He goes from one subject to another with his OCD. He can't live in a home environment. He is narcisstic and keeps a grandiose attitude. He was in therapy group home or facilities since age 9, only able to remain in the home a few months each time he returned. He lives in a fantasy world building himself up to believing he has done so many things and then falling flat on his face. He claims he is bored and not given things to do that are challenging. However, now on his own and yet not, he can't hold a job, he is in denial of his mental illnesses. He lies to people to keep them from knowing about his disorders, so instead of some one helping him, when they realize he is different, they exit from his life and world. He tries to be so know it all and talks a great talk, but can't follow through. There's so much more. If he could have gotten the right kind of help in the early years of his life, maybe things would be better for him today. Speaking of the "No Child Left Behind" law, children like him and his sister HAVE been left behind. Teachers, staff workers, even therapists and some doctors were at a loss to help him. Is there anyone there who has been through the same? PLEASE, parents, be certain you see that your young child gets the help they need and deserve. It will make a difference when they become adults.

hi i got asbergis symdrone and i find it hard to cope with it, because people treat you like a retard, the think you are strange, i can not control my action or my anger, it really hard to cope with, i dont see why i must be treated/bullyee the way i been bullied in the pass 

Name: Jo | Date: Jan 16th, 2009 5:36 AM
No one should treat you bad or bully you. There is a law now that if someone is bullying you, they can be arrested. Some times a parent has to take the initative to have it done. My grandchildren wouldn't tell about being bullied for a long time. My grandson uses running to help his anger. He runs everyday and enters a race every now and then.

wow! To see your messages warm my heart!! For a second I don't feel alone! My son has the gift of ASD. I would NOT change him if I could. Some times I just wish evan just one person could understand him. I'm so tired of people thinking he is a bad boy.... And it's turned into a life long mission to take up for him and defend him. He is such a good boy. I wish people could see that!

I am a seventeen year old girl. and I have aspergers. I have a lot of friends, but I am horrible in social situations and I hate being around large groups of my own age. I am in school and I have a lot of issues do to anxiety. Buffy and Angela. I get emotional when it comes to doing writing assignments, yet I am on the honor roll in school. I have a problem with hands on stuff. I wanted to know if that was something to do with aspergers. I go to boces, I can write very well but when it comes to doing the actual hands on working with people stuff I freak out.

I've never done this before so bear with me. I have a son who is being investigated (FINALLY) for Asperger's. He has been "diagnosed" with ADHD but I disagreed with the diagnosis and pursued a second opinion. The pediatrician agrees that the attention deficiancy doesn't seem to be the issue and is leaning towards Asperger's..maybe ODD..but more towards Asperger's. Sometimes I read about it and think that it so much describes him..then I read something else and think well no he doesn't do that thing (like wave his hands for example). But as I read some of the past posts from this site I feel like wow...it sounds like what we've been going through. Is there anyone here now that I can talk to that knows about this condition that can help me? I just wish I could parent him in a positive way...it is just so hard because every little thing seems to be such a big deal.

How can you tell that a child has something other then ADHD? My son has is 11yrs. old and has been treated for ADHD since he was in grade K now that he is in the 6th grade I just see things with him more then ever, He is always in his room playing x box , he really does not like to look people in the eye when talking he always looks around once in a while I can get him to look me in the face when talking, His grades have really picked up but he has to have some help with his work, He loves playing football but he has a hard time makeing friends, He thinks that it is ok for other kids to pick on him or push him around because he thinks that if he lets them then they will like him. It take a few minutes for him to get out what ever it is he is trying to say, always taps my arm when talking to me even though I am looking at him and talking to him I could go on but I am so tired of looking for answers I just don't know what to do or what I should research any more. I don't want my son to feel like he is not like other kids. It is hard my 2yr old at time seems to be more a head in thing then my 11yr old. If any one could give me an ideal of what I am dealing with please let me know

I have a son with this and it is difficult daily dealing with him and his limitations and incredible intelligence. Need someone to talk to so I don't feel so alone.

Joey, your testimony to your success with friends warms my heart. I know there is hope...do you mind me asking what kind of therapy you are doing with your psychiatrist? 

Name: rhonda | Date: Feb 6th, 2009 10:58 PM
Roxanne, this disease breaks my heart all over again everyday. Somedays I hate everyone whose children are happy and have friends. Seeing your child rejected daily and having no control is absolutely awful. He is 13 and we have done treatment for 1 year but it has gotten no better. In fact, he has been rejected so much that he does not even try any more....I pray everyday for just 1 friend to call him or want to sit with him...alls I know to do is tell him I love him at least 10 times a day...and that he is my best friend

hey hun this might be the place for you http://my.bounty.com/forums/Su
a great place to mums with special needs to chat. Aspergers can be a particularly challenging one because of other peoples reactions and attitudes I have found in my experience, its a shame there isnt greater awareness dont you think xxx
