Carol, I have a son with Asperger's, and would love to connect with someone that I could chat with regarding issues that arise.

Im sad because I had to grow up in a family with my older brother who suffers from asperger syndrome.Its not fair on the other siblings. I look back on my childhood years and most of it consisted of arguments and misery. My mother really struggled and there should be more benfits avaible for parents to support children with special needs. As he has got older he has improved but he still causes tension. Its not only the person with asber syndrome who is in need its the whole family !!

If you are in the Modesto/Stockton/Fresno area (or even the Bay area of California), the NPA I work for provides behavioral therapy (early intervention, behavioral consultation, parent-training, in-home skills and behavioral programs, and behavioral pediatrics) for children with autism and other special needs. Email me at [email protected] for more info.

Hi parents. I am a mother of a darling 7 year old severely autistic child. My husband and I have recently made a application to help you communicate better with your children. We had tried many other programs and none of them seemed to work for us. They seemed to be too overwhelming and too expensive for me and my daughter. It is available on iTunes, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. It will soon be available on the Android.

Please go to our web site and read more about it. Here is the linkhttp://my-own-voice.com/

Also you can go to our facebook page and "LIKE" us to help get the word out and support each other

Hi eveyone :) just got onto this site,read everyones comments..and all i can sa y is THANK GOD im not alone!! My son is 5 with Aspergers,and i swear one of these days this kid is going to cause me a heart attack or something! Im already on medication for Depression,and nobody wants to medicate their children,but it kinda makes sense..get rid of the anxiety and the rest will follow..I dont know..I worry about when hes older as he is already too hard to handle physically.Its also really good to hear Honest feed back from people,because why "sugarcoat" reality?!

I am seeking out other parents of children with Aspergers and ADHD Combos. My son was diagnosed this week and I am having trouble connecting all the dots. Anyone had issues with extreme defiant behaviors, suspensions from school? Btw he just turned 7 in May. Everything I am reading doesn't seem to fit the violent aspects and verbally abusive parts of my son's problems.

Sharing Experiences of Coping and Self-care

I'm a master's level psychology student researching the coping and self-care experiences of mothers with a child with autism or Asperger's Syndrome.

We want to better understand the coping and self-care strategies used by mothers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

We are seeking mothers, who have at least one child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, who was diagnosed for at least one year. The child must be 11 years old or less.

Mothers will share her experience on her journey to cope and self-care in a 1 ½ hour individual interview.

A 10 minute initial phone screening will be completed to determine eligibility.

The interview would consist of 3 parts: (1) a life review, (2) sharing of 3 – 5 specific stressful events during the last two weeks, and (3) concepts of self-care as it applies to your life.

Mothers will be requested to fill out a demographic survey at the end of the interview.

Please contact Manvir Gill at [email protected] for more information.

I found this, and can pretty much say that my grandson has most of these things. Must one have ALL of these things to be considered "Aspergers"?

Asperger symptoms are not the same for every child or adult with this diagnosis. Aspies are all different people with their own unique set of characteristics. However they do have some of them in common.

Some Asperger symptoms are:

1. Socially and emotionally inappropriate behavior

2. Limited interests or preoccupation with a subject

3. Repetitive behaviors or rituals;

4. Peculiarities in speech and language;

5. Problems with nonverbal communication

6. Lack of empathy

7. Clumsy and uncoordinated motor movements

8. Inflexibility or rigid thinking


I also found this list:


not sure if he has the 1. Social Isolation. He isn't around children that much yet, but he definitely doesn't get along with his little sister. They have a love/hate relationship. Does that count? He likes her to play with him, but then he gets upset if she doesn't do what he tells her to do.

I'm also not sure about 4. Speech and Language...altlhough he had delayed speech and still doesn't talk like a normal 5 year old. We can at least understand most of what he says now, though. But he does sometimes put on a "funny face" when he talks...or look away for a bit.

I also found this list:


sure if he has the required number on items 4 and 5, but maybe.

Is it possible to have just a "mild case" of Aspergers....or do you have to have ALL of these criteria in order to be termed an Aspie?

He also seems to be very ODD.

He had some early symptoms that concerned me when he was a baby a few times like not looking at me in the eye...turning his gaze away.....and when he was a bit older, indeed struggling with frustration because he couldn't talk. His speech was definitely delayed! Then at age 3 or so maybe, I tried to have conversation with him, and he wouldn't really answer me directly. At least it all seemed "abnormal" to me, but his parents said that he just was slow at talking so he acted that way. I can now carry on a conversation with him, but his conversations he starts are mostly about him and his achievements.

One thing that really disturbed me was the way he hit us when he was not even one year old. When we tried to correct him, he didn't seem to understand and just hit us more. As he got older, he didn't seem to understand that it wasn't acceptable to hit and knock over his little sister or run into us either. He also seems to have no respect for others' property and goes into "destroy everything" mode at times. He gets quite upset if things don't go his way. An example of this is once his little sister was playing with something blue, and he tried to take it away from her saying, "Blue is for boys!" He gets upset if she doesn't put her leggos back in the box after playing with them. He also gets upset if she goes and does something else when he wants her to continue to play leggos next to him. (He has a blue set, and she has a pink set.) He gets upset and throws tantrums if one little piece in the leggo set is missing and he can't find it, etc. He was late in potty training and learning to dress himself, and he gets upset when his schedule gets messed up. He sits for hours playing leggos at the moment (but he's also in the past been obsessed with drawing...and then playdoe, and then his train set.) He will spend every day doing this one obsession for weeks, and then he will switch to a different obsession. But many times if he's not occupied with something special like this, he is terrorizing his little sister or breaking something.

Do you think he has enough signs to be considered an Aspie?

If anyone in Malaysia is looking for a communication therapy service for their child, I have one to recommend: LEMM International Therapy (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Lemmit )
They are an excellent service for special needs children.

I have a son whom is spectrum and ADHD. He is a very loving boy, but going through some social challenges. The elementary school he currently attending appears to be very forgiving, my worries are the middle and high school. 

Name: Kerry | Date: Jan 18th, 2013 8:52 AM
Hello there... I wanted to share something with Malaysian parents out there. I have a friend who needs communication therapy for their son's special needs. They have someone actually come to their home to work with the child. I have seen very good results! If anyone may be interested, let me know, I'll find out more!
