I have a teenage son and a seven year old son with what I believe is Asperger's Syndrome. I recently had a talk with my seven year old's teacher and she was very dismissive of my concerns and said "he is just an anxious child". Lately he has been unwell for an extended period of time and missed a lot of school, and now he is refusing to go to school some days, crying and displaying extreme anxiety about school. Also his sleep is very disrupted and he is having night terrors and disturbed vision. It is really wearing me down and I just need to talk to someone about it. My husband works away from home on shift work so it is mostly just me dealing with this and trying to help our son feel more safe and secure. It is so hard and so very heartbreaking to see him so anxious and so upset.
