Hi ladies.

I'm Lindsey. I have two boys on the spectrum. Coleman who is 6 and aiden who is 5. They both were 3 years old when I got them tested. They grew up with therapy of speech,OT,in home teachers and when they got older,they got behavior therapy. They are still struggling in behavior and following directions. Coleman and aiden are wonderful, loving boys who get along fairly well

Hi Lindsey, welcome to the group! My 3 1/2 year old Ethan is on the Spectrum, has Apraxia of Speech, and dyspraxia. He's been doing all the therapies you mentioned also. My 2 year old Ari receives speech and early intervention services as well. Both boys are doing fantastic and bring joy to my life every day! Welcome again :)

Welcome to the group. People on the spectrum are "Show me" concept people who do not follow directions well. Try visual schedules and songs like:

Hello,

Welcome. Are your boys severely autistic and non verbal?

Hi! Welcome.

im Scarlett, mom to Sam, 9, also on the spectrum.... Also suffering with 2 severe anxiety disorders and currently severe depression. :( 

a cute book is "why do I have to...." Check it out on Amazon. It's good for 6 year olds about "why" following directions and rules.... I can take a few pictures for you if you want to see it. :) 

lid be curious to know which areas they have difficulty with? Are these directions that involve sensory discomforts or just "social" rules they aren't comfortable with?
