It's the bit about you also having a teenager that wins sympathy from me.

At the age of 13 Little Madam metamorphosed into La Madame, my golden-ringleted baby girl becoming a ferocious hound from the deepest pit of hell.

She's 15 now...

Ugh....

Welcome to ASDf, Tali.

awwwww shes not a ferocius hound from the deepest pit of hell JR!!!!!!

 

She is a very clever, incredibly brave, has the stamina that I deeply admire in her, inspirational and very beautiful teenage girl!!!!! You KNOW for a fact she will always be an incredible mighty warrior, who does not hesitate to let people know her own personal opinions.


She learnt from the best, what did you expect :P

Hi Toffee,

 

You're the 3rd person in the last few weeks mentioning a deaf child and ASD; I hadn't noticed any in the last few years I've been here. 

 

We have 3 children, the 2 boys have ASD and are in special school doing well.  Our eldest  DD is NT, but also dairy and soya intolerant.

 

This is a brilliant site for info.

hello there - just arrived and trying to make sense of the site - somewhat long in the tooth and a bit of a technophobe.

 

Anyway - I have 5 children (3 boys and 2 girls) ranging from 9 to almost 22.

 

Middle child (boy) is almost 18 now and has aspergers syndrome.

 

4th child (girl) and her diagnoses was ADD with asperger traits, but this has recently been revised to "more aspergers that we previously thought"  - whatever that means!

 

Youngest child (boy) had plain old ADHD (absolutely no doubt there).

 

Older two children are "normal" in terms of the ASD spectrum - well "normal-ish" anyway. They have different problems. My almost 22 year old daughter has had ME since she was 16, and my 19 year old son suffered a (thankfully minor)  brain injury a few years back playing school rugby.

 

So normal life in our house is anything but normal! AT the moment my life cosists of :

 

keeping the peace between Mr Inflexible and Master Implusive

 

trying to negotiate agreement about an acceptable level of light and volume between my ABI son (& his heightened sensitivity to light & noise) and his too sensation craving brothers.

 

 

remembering not to overlook my oh so passive and insecure ADD/ASD daughter in the middle of all this

 

 

Anyway that is me. Nice to join you all

Hello there

 

I joined this site before half term and then, half term happened!

 

I am mum to 7 year old boy with Asperger's and 6 year old who is NT.

 

We switched schools in September and it was going brilliantly. And now it isn't. I think mostly because of a different time table and the fact that it hasn't snowed!

 

It's good to be here.

Hi Cozzie

First thing my son (11) asked was if they are allowed to throw snow balls at the secondary school he is going to in Sept. That was when he met the manager of the ASD base - glad his grasp of the important stuff is so good!!!

Welcome to the site, it is a great place. xx

Hi Cozzie,

 

I liked your post; concise yet full of info. Half term happened here too, but it's also Groundhog week as it's happening again this week (children in school in different counties) 

 

Mine are all teenagers now, but the highlight of last week was the Lego movie.

 

This is a great site for info , support and humour; Welcome.

Hi all, thank you for letting me be part of this group.

 

I am 36 years old and I am a single mum to two boys, my oldest son is Ben who is eight and Jake who is six.

 

Jake was diagnosed at two with severe autism and developmental delay and attends a wonderful school in Andover Hampshire.

 

A bit about me, I like to read, do puzzles, knit and sew and at the moment I am making a pair of dungarees for Jake so he can't take his nappy off, which is a daily challage.

 

Thats us so please feel free to chat to me ......please lol

hi everyone!

I registered with this site a year ago and you were all very helpful regarding my Pre-Schooler at the time (I'm a Pre-School teacher so I have a whole new group of children now, and have also become the SENCO! *proud!*)

I was hoping you could help with a 3 year old in the Nursery, who has issues with big transitions in his day, ie going to and from the garden, having his nappy changed.

I'll open a thread, so as not to bung up this one, but I'm not sure where to put it - really I'm after parent views, rather than Education-related views. Well, both I suppose.

Heeeeelp! ...thanks
