Admitting I need help with my son
Think I've found the right place:) My son is 11 years old. He was diagnosed ADD in December 2009 and was just recently in October diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome and anxiety disorder. I'm having a hard time coming to grips with this although I feel like I should have known. His teachers tried to tell me but I was in denial. I knew that he doesn't make eye contact, he can't focus unless he's singing or humming, he doesn't have many close friends by choice, he's brilliant in algebra but can't keep his shoes tied but I never thought anything was wrong with this. He started middle school this year and he hate it. He has anxiety about going to school because he get nervous when he has to communicate with others. My husband knows that this is very serious and tries to make me understand that we have a real problem that needs more of our attention. I don't want my denial to keep my son from getting the help he need but this is very hard for me. HELP!!!
