Are there any moms on CafeMoms with children diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome

Our 10 year old daughter was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome almost two years ago. She has therapy every two weeks.

  • My 6 year old son was just recently diagnosed with Asperger's and a side of ADHD, lol. He's about to start therapy for the Asperger's and is on meds for the ADHD--which has actually improved school for him at least. He still has massive issues socially and with sensory stuff and eye contact.

  • not me personally but i taught sunday school and had two 3rd grade boys with aspergers in my class. one's mom put him on a special diet that worked miracles in a matter of a couple short months - the other's did not and he continued the behavior that is troublesome in "normal" environments. just wanted to mention this to you as i have personally observed that this diet can really help children....
