this is my 1st time on here. I have never posted about aspergers b4.my. son was diagnosed w/ mild aspergers in kindergarten. he has had problems w/ making friends and problems in school. I can remember many Birthday or holiday party when he ended up sitting outside of the class room. Birthday parties where he wasn't invited. and Meltdowns at public places where I thought the security might try to intervene.now he is in 7th grade and doing very well. he has friends and feels popular. he understands aspergers now and it helps him when he has some troubles. I have been through the mill w/ him and still hold my breath when I get a call from the school. I wont say its a dream now but in comparison it is. I am a widowed Mom from the time my son was a baby. my Mom passed the same year so I really didn't have too much family support. I did have a good school psychologist and good friends. I have seen other kids w/ other disabilities do so well it gave me the light at the end of the tunnel.I would be happy to talk w/ anyone else who needs to share ups and downs... [email protected]

look im not tryin to cut anyone down please dont get mad as im not a parent of an aspie. i am an actual aspie and i was looking around and saw this and got curious. carol aspies have friends, we just dont make many and we dont feel the need to be around them constantly. all my mom tries to do is let me work it out best i can. im going to guees (and i may be wrong) that your child is not yet a teen. most of the aspies ive talked to learned to hide theyre symptoms around the teen years you just have to wait it out. itll get better i promise.

I have not told her what she has but she know she is different from the kids at school her party is in a week and has only 2 children coming so far out of 12 I'm taking them to a bowling party I just feel so sad for my daughter as I thought they would say yes no matter how she acts at school.

Name: Sheryl | Date: Mar 23rd, 2011 12:01 PM
We believe our 11 year old son has Asperger's and he can be incredibly difficult to deal with.

I now have a forum at http://parentingboost.com which I hope can bring parents together in a place where they can chat and just meet other parents with similar children.

hi! i really don't know how this site works, but i am a mom with a teen son with aspergers. He is nearly 17. I think it would be helpful for him to meet other aspies especially girls.

My son is in all regular classes, is very social, outgoing, funny, charming,takes most things literally, has good days, and bad days, is a Christian, has a sweet relationship with the Lord, and struggles with making as he calls" real friends"

To all parents of children with Aspergers, keep encouraging more social behaviour, let them know when they are speaking rudely, so they can learn not to. Don't let the Aspergers be an excuse, they can learn what's appropriate and what's not, if you are persistant and endlessly patient. Let them know they are unique and have huge potential to be whatever they want...their special gifts can be a huge asset if encouraged. My son, who is 17, has just finished year 12 and has gone on to tertiary education. He also has a part time job which he's enjoying and is extremely responsible and reliable with his jobs around the house. He runs his own car and pays all the expenses for it. High school had it's ups and downs, he often said that he thought he should be going out more because that's what the other teenagers do. With positive affirmation he accepts himself more, but he is still socially immature and lacking in confidence. I'm glad high school is finished. He had some friends, but also a lot who pretended to be his friend and then laughed about him behind his back. In the more adult world, I think (hope) there is greater acceptance. He is a very sweet young man, has always had a lovely nature, but has needed guidance with the "rude" remarks that he had no idea were rude. Still occasionally says something rude and is very surprised when I point it out. If your child is young, there is hope, you just need to persevere and be prepared to explain some things over and over. Show love and acceptance and above all.....be patient.

I'm not a parent, but I do have aspergers myself, and had a bit of a hard time when I was younger, while I can't give you any parenting advice, I would like to say that somtimes all you can do as a parent is step back and let your child work things out, it's going to be difficult but worth it, but that in itself will only come into play in middle school and High school, as long as your kid can find just one or two friends, those friendships should be strong by themselves, and sometimes those one or two friends will make the biggest difference, that much I can tell you for a fact.

Well to Cara, I have aspergers, ADHD, and a severe documented axiety disorder and I'm thirteen and in eigth grade with a goal of being a full time writer. I found out that by telling my friends about it they were a little more understanding since they now knew that i was as you put it "Quirky" but just being me, the girl with her head in stephen king novels she could finish in a day. I sugest giving her a chance to have more friends and encourging her to have a goal with prompts towards working hard for something that she may have trouble getting otherwise, after all because of my determination to be a writer I got into the best highschool for cities around. :) and Buffy, if its your son you think is being disrespectful then i should probably mention my anxiety makes me do the same things and it feels alot liekt he end of the world ending in me screaming and snapping at people and making myself physically sick on accident. And Tanya, I wish my teacher was had experiance with ASP, she hates my guts since i'mthe "Kid who has severe panic attacks in the end of the room which are supposedly faked to get me out of the schoolt hough i end up in the hospital for them" and the "Disrespetful on even though i'm only standing up for my friends she picks on for no reason"

I am a single mother of two daughters and my oldest who is now 7 about to be 8 in July offically got diagnosed with Aspergers October of 2010. It took me over 4 years to get where I am right now. First I had to deal with the diagnosis part. The school thought she was just having behavior issues and was blaming me as a parent just about saying I didn't discipline her the right way. At the age of 5 almost 6 I finally got fed up with the school system and starting doing research about systems of behavior issues and what causes them. I couldn't believe what I saw when I started reading about PDD. I was terrified but also relieved because I knew my daughter was Autistic then. As time went on I kept telling the school to test my daughter who had been in speech since kindergarten. She was getting pulled out from regular classroom settings and put into special ed speech classes. The transitioning just wasn't working either. One speech teacher did believe that my daughter did have Autism and helped me get the school to test her. Finally in August of 2010 she got tested and in October she was diagnosed with Aspergers. From August to October we had a major change in life and moved out of state. My daughter did pretty well with it but new school and all she had problems adapting. Here it was again all over the kicking, the spitting, the throwing chairs, and just tantrums at school that I couldn't control. I finally meet with her teachers at the new school and said is there any school within the district that can help my daughter with her Aspergers. They couldn't do anything until they tested her. Great now I will know for sure if she has it 2 tests with a couple months. In the mean time I was looking for schools but every school I found cost $10,000 + a year. I am a single mother remember I couldn't afford that. I finally got a meeting with the school districts main IEP director and all the other 10 teachers that involves my daughter on a daily basis and I finally got some hope. They said we offer a autistic unit and also a behavioral assement unit. I know unit sounds horrible right. But it wasn't sounding horrible when they explained to me what the goals were. It is a smaller ratio classroom with 4 to 5 students and they strictly focus on behavior more than education. Of course my daughter was not behind educationally at all she actually was above on a lot of things for her age. I told myself if I devote at least 1 year to this program what have I lost. My daughters is ok educationally and I just can't cope with the behavior and finally I decided to place her there and its been the best school year she has had in 3 years. Note that my daughter is not on a medication presently. I took it one day at a time and researched so much I became obsessed at one point at finding help for her but in the last 8 months I have found that occupational therapy can be given to help with sensory issues and some other issues that come with Aspergers. She currently is getting occupational therapy outside of school, speech therapy, behavioral therapy in the school and I have to say that if these things she needs to cope with to suceed in life I'm on board 100%. Just remember when the frustration comes in to play, just remember they can't help the way they are they were born this way and they need you more than ever and you are the light that shines on them to help them through this world.
