Aspbergers

My ss has aspbergers, although not severe.  You can hug him and so forth.  I found when he writes down how he feels we communicate so well.  Just wondering if there is any other tools I can use for him focusing on homework and socializing?

Thanks

I would totally utilize that he can write down how he feels, maybe he can do home work on a computer when hes done with home work he can get a small reward like video game time or something, a small candy etc.  socializing there are social skills groups out there, you really have to look around though.  also you can practice playing a board game, taking turns, talking back and forth its good practice

Also... with homework, he probably needs a very structured routine for that. I encourage you to work closely with the school on this issue.

I found my son needed structor for homework, everyday after school homework with snack. He had to spend an hour. If he had no homework then he would read or I would read to him. we would always have a small social skill project, like every time you speak look the person in the eyes. I also made it a point to tell him about anytime I felt awkward in public, I think it is good for him to know we all feel awkward at times.

Hi! Welcome to the club. 😉 we keep him very structured. We also look for signs of overload. I try to put him in small group activities. We have friends over and I monitor from a distance. I see something going wrong, I step in and try to get the problem solving moving.

Welcome to the group!  My son uses his hands and loves to build things and do origami.
