Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

Do you use Social Stories? Visual Schedules?

Proactive parenting?

 

Does anybody know what I'm talking about?

 

I've been taking a workshop series called "raising your challenging child" and it has been LIFE CHANGING!

I also went to a social stories workshop provided by the school district. AWESOME.

 

I'm just learning about all these things. Wondering if any of you ladies have learned about this stuff too?

 

As a caveat though, I will say that my son probably doesn't have autism after all. Now I'm leaning more toward just ADHD but can't confirm without meds yet. Will keep you posted :)

Doctors have told me that many ASD kids tend to have ADHD as well.   A recommended psychologist wanted to put my son on med's but the side effects are very dangerous.  I stopped going to that doctor because she didn't offer any solution to help with the ADHD other than med's.  Find the best doctor for your child, they are the most knowledgeable, and really do want to help.
