Motivating your child with Aspergers Syndrome

Sun 8 May 2016 4:02pm



I was just looking around the net today and came across this interesting link.  I've signed up to the Webinar that's coming up on 10th May so will try to remember to post more after that.  Having an undiagnosed son in his mid - 20's who spends all day every day sitting in his room all day playing games, I found this really interesting.   It's not a quick fix but with a bit of work this might just work.

Child exclusion

Fri 22 Apr 2016 11:00am

My child is on the verge of being excluded. he has been suspended from school for his behaviour and is on his final chance.

he is year 6 and i have just been given a draft EHC for 25 hours support

and yesterday was told that specialist provisions can be looked at.

however i have only found independant schools which may be suitable in my opinion.

this is going to county next week.

however in the mean time my child could be excluded at any point.

plus needs to be looking at somewhere now not next term.

I have been getting concerned about my youngest son for a while now. For those who don't know, I have a 10yo son who has a social communication disorder with traits of autism, we are currently waiting to see if he is on the spectrum or not. These are my concerns;

•The youngest one has never been given enough attention and very rarely our full attention. He has had several medical problems requiring hospital treatment and even then, the oldest one always seems to end of the primary concern.

need some support

Tue 1 Mar 2016 9:10pm

My son who is 3 years old has recently been diagnosed with autism, he cannot talk and he has the understanding of a 12 month old. He is really aggressive and is constantly angry, he bites, throws objects, hurts himself , head butts floors the list goes on. He is constantly hurting his 5 year old sister who is scared of him .

Fluoride Toothpaste

Sat 27 Feb 2016 12:23pm
A bit of an odd one, but my son is now 13 and still using kids fruit flavoured toothpaste. He really needs to move on to adult fluoride toothpaste but he won't use anything with mint flavour. Has anyone come across adult fluoride toothpaste which has other flavours? We've been looking online but can't find anything. Thanks Smile

What do I need to know before caring for someone with Autism?

Thu 18 Feb 2016 1:26am

Hi everyone,

I am currently studying a course in disability support work.
Can anybody please give me an insight of what I need to know about autism before caring for someone with this condition.
More specifically, what I need to know about caring for someone with autism.

Thank you in advance

Support Rquired

Sun 24 Jan 2016 6:18pm

Many people discuss the support needed by parents, but what about the support needed by those diagnosed?

My son was recently diagnosed with being on the spectrum; my wife and I punched the air as we thought that this would provide a catalyst for the support our son needs. How wrong we were! Since our sons diagnosis, we are no further forward than we were six years ago. Do we have to continue to raise our son without any support, or direction? What an complete sham this is for any person with a hidden disability and those who care for them.

Head banging

Thu 7 Jan 2016 10:47am

Hi. I've wrote previously about my sons, ones who is four and diagnosed ASD and my almost two year old who we are just starting out the process for diagnosis. And was wondering if any one could give me any advice on head banging.
