My boys are autistic, with Aspie and General Anxiety Disorder. They are 11, in Jr High but act and behave at 3rd grade level. Scholastically they are at 8th level and beyond.
I'm having a hard time coping with them in public and hoping they don't have another meltdown today. We've gotten where we just hide in the house on weekends or do stuff when they are at school.
This can't continue. We feel like we are prisoners of our kid's disorder. They are too physically big to react the way they do to things (violence). Any suggestions?
They are not into sports or outdoor activities at all. The only thing that keeps them focused and give us a mental break is video games and playing on a computer for their hour.
