I have signed up to receive some support and advise from other mom.. my son is on the spectrum of high functioning autistic.. Our main struggles are in school.  He can usually last till about 12 :00  before meltdowns or stress.. can anyone relate?

Is there a way he can take a break before it starts? like to take something to the office, or a bathroom break , or like a sensory break?

Just joined group....mom of severe sensory processing disorder child that has yet to be diagnosed on spectrum.  I, as his mom, feel he has mild autism but who knows.  It's rainy today and we are all about to lose our mind with his hitting, and impulsivity!  Trying to figure out something to keep him happy in doors but no luck....any ideas?

I thought I would check this out, I do not twitter and not much face book.

My boys are older and hopfully I can be of service to some young mothers.

I have one son who has learned to be a mechanic and one son we are still searching for his own thing.

Let them be as much normal as you can.

Parents must teach the basic skills, let the schools and support help with the rest.

I have to go for now, please contact me through e-mail if you have a question.

Thank you

I think that my son may have Asburgers, at least it has been suggested by a few people I know, just wondering if there was a chat room I could talk to another mom and possible get some advise

Hi my son was diagnosed 2 years ago with epilepsy, aspergers, and adhd. We have been strugglling very hard in school he is 8 and in first grade for the second time. When we started school in August he started out pretty good but toward the end of September he started regressing and has regressed so much academically that he is now learning kindergarten academics. He struggles very hard in the classroom. He can not function well at all in a full class setting not to mention the social aspects that he deals with. He has gotten to where he is very negative about hisself. His dad and I encourage him and tell him all the good things about himself but it hasnt helped much. When he is really stressed we have noticed and the teacher has noticed that he chews on things. He bit his self at school last week when he got really frustrated. We really dont know what to do at this point. We are in the process of neuropshychological exams  and he is now on half days at school. Does anyone one have a child with these 3 situations that can offer adivice. We have been very open with him about the epilepsy and why he has to have medicine but  I really dont know how to explain the autism to him. Help!!!
