What age is your child?
What is the biggest struggle YOU have with your child?
And what is your CHILDS biggest struggle?
My 10 year old was diagnosed when he was 3 with autism, then at 5 with aspergers. The biggest struggle I have with my DS is the mood swings. He has such bad mood swings when he gets aggervated. My sons biggest struggle has been understanding the social dynamic, and physical limitations. It has been really hard to teach him to tie his shoes or ride a bike.
I have never had my son DX with asperger's because I don't think it would be best for him but I believe he does have a touch of it. He is 5yrs old and the biggest struggle is he is constantly taking things apart. He loves to build and take things apart. He always has a huge supply of batteries that he loves to put in things and take out. Sometimes it's really frustrating that he doesn't play with his own toys but prefers to play with things he shouldn't. My son also has some social issues. He is to touchy with other kids. When he's playing he loves to hold hands and hug and the other kids his age do not like it. I've told him until i'm blue in the face that he doesn't have to get so close or hug kids all the time. As far as physical abilities my son doesn't have them, but he's always been advanced for his age (walking at 6 months) but because he's advanced it makes it hard to keep him away from harmful things.
