Hi, I have 3 children and my middle child is a boy aged six who has recently been diagnosed with level 1 autism. He had been excluded from school for violent outbursts and a few weeks before Christmas he had his hours reduced to 8.45 - 10am. It became increasingly difficult to get him to go at all and all he wants to do is watch YouTube minecraft videos on his iPad. I told this to the headmaster who said without being condescending take it off of him. Your the adult. Not helpful advice but I tried that evening. And my son didn't stop screaming kicking, biting, spitting and throwing things.
Hello I'm new to the forum but really need some advice or ideas about this. My 16 year old son has ASD and ADD and although he seems relatively normal on the outside he doesn't have great emotional maturity. He wants to have a girlfriend and had already lost one friendship at school over a girl. In that context, two days ago out of the blue he got a friend request from a girl and he accepted without us realising. As soon as he did she started messaging him and got him to give her his phone number and address.
Sorry duplicate post!
Hi all. I am working with a young man who presents as streetwise, confident and is able to maintain good eye contact. He is currently undertaking agency work and is motivated and eager in seeking to gain an apprenticeship - with the support of a youth employment advisor. However after working with him, I have noticed some traits which give the picture of a speech, language and communication and/or social communication need - ASD being a possibility:
- This young man has difficulties with recognising 'safe' people and situations.
Hi guys. Haven't been here for quite a while now for various reasons but well need on advise from someone who understands...
Hi everyone this is my first post so be gentle
my son aged 7 has recently been diagnosed with autism and I have a few questions .
Been a long time since I have been here. My 5yr old son finally received his diagnosis at the beginning of the year after three years working with professionals. We then moved across country and now I am hopefully no more than a few weeks away from an appoiintment with an autism unit after requesting referral due to my sons behaviour. I homeschool him and have no family anywhere near so almost all of my time is spent with him. I have joined a gym recently and enjoy going some evenings after he goes to bed (his dad stays home).
I recently started dating a man who has an 8 year old son and a 12 year old daughter. I have a 10 year old daughter. We have been dating for about 6 months. We have gotten the kids together several times to play. I was concerned because the son is a little rambunctous and his kids play fight (which usually ends up in a real fight). I am somewhat strict on my daughter and would never let her "play" fight. But other than that the kids seem to get along well and they are pretty well mannered.
