Hello, I have a 16 year old son who is going through a lot of adulescence problems. I try to do things with him to experience fun things in his life.  But, he gets so loud & obnoxious & it's driving me crazy. I don't know what I can do to handle him. It is so hard sometimes on us parents, people have no idea what it is like. What can I do to deal with this stressful time. It has never easy, but I'm having a hard time with him, what can I do?

My daughter is a 10 yr old diagnosed with mild autism. She had an IEP evaluation at age 4, for the public schools. Public school special ed was not rewarding or beneficial for her. She has since started attending a small private school where she is learning and making up for lost time. We live in Marrero LA. We are trying to find where she can have another IEP evaluation done. Her school is requiring it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My son has not been diagnosed, but I KNOW something is off. He was in PT and OT and early intervention but was stopped because he looked like he was thriving. I am beginning again next week. I am so frustrated with no name to call his oddities and no idea how to help him. When we stopped everything I shook off my instincts ( and I was tired of feeling crazy like it was my imagination) my oldest is 15 months older than Zayn and he is completely opposite. I just want to know how to help my son. I want straight Answers. What can I do to push the issues this time because now all I see is time lost and I don't want to lose anymore.

Im happy to join!!!! My son has Asperger's Syndrome. He is 13 years old now and he has overcome so much. As he enters the teen years, I am blown away by the challenges I face.  Looking forward to connecting with others.

My 19 year old was diagnosed with Aspergers in School


 He graduated from High School . But , seems to need motivation to learn to drive and go to college . How do I help him to be more independent ?

thank you all for a place that understands the challenges I face. Austin is wonderful loving boy of 4 years old. He has been going to the learning center sence he was 3. They are tyring to help him get ready for going to school and not be too far behind. I don't feel its enough, there has to be more help out there. He still doesn't speak or communicate Will with others. And its a battle to potty train.

Im new here. I have a two-year old autistic daughter, and wanted to talk to other moms that are going through the same things as me. I havent told any friends and family about my child being on the spectrum. Sometimes it hard work and just wanted to know how others cope with things.
