Hi.

I am me.

We have ASD in the family.

Two adult nieces dx with Aspergers and many undx suspects.

I have a husband awaiting dx.

A 19 year old with autism traits and two nearly 6ft teenage boys with ASD.

I have a mind that is bulging and popping with too many issues to mention, tra la la, hence the not popping on here too much.

I have distanced myself away from family as I am sure my problems are 

just

too

much.

And probably that's why I have taken myself away from here too.

Hi all, 

 

Long time since I've been here. Just been searching for revision help for kids with Aspergers and you all popped up on Google!

 

So glad to see so many familiar names and its great to read all the updates. 

 

As for my update, I am still the lone female in house of 5. I now hold the title of the shortest member of the family too, by quite some margin....

M is the tallest at nearly 6ft and still likes those strong bear hugs we had when he was younger. Little bit more life threatening for me now when I'm hugged by him - doesn't know his own strength!

 

As for everything else not much has changed. Footy still plays a major part in the boys life and I get to sweep up all those little black bits of rubber from the 3G pitches and the mud from the fields on a daily basis. So, with four or five footy kits to wash each week as well I think I'll keep my member name for now!

 

My original search was for ways to help M with revision techniques as he is half way through Y10 and things are getting tough. So, I'll get back to reading the posts from you lovely people and pinch a few ideas.

Hi everyone.

I'm frantic-mum, can't remember when i found this site (so glad i did though)
I abdicated a while ago when things began to get better and now I've popped back to catch up, update etc.

My son was diagnosed with AS at the age of 6, he's now 16, still in the same indie special school that he started at 6yrs ago.

I have a daughter who is now not coping well with life and is thinking of trying to get assessed for ASD.

We've had more than a fair amount of problems over the years with our LA and that is still happening.
