I know trouble sleeping is a common problem for people with ASD. My 3 year old at least once a night (most nights) wakes up for a good 45 min anywhere from 1 am to 3 am. She doesn't cry but just starts loudly talking or singing to herself (let me tell you, a 3 year old singing "Naaaaaants igonyaaaaaaaama bagithi babaaaaa!" from the Lion King on Broadway at 3 am sounds like it'd be funny, but it's not. ).
Is there anything that may help? She is not too hot or cold, not twisted in her pjs… read more
My son is easily manipulated and wants so badly to have friends. He is a video game wiz and feels much more comfortable communicating on apps. Unfortunately he has been asked repeatedly for money from people he thinks will be his friend. I feel so bad because he believes he is helping these scammers by sending them money. Is anyone here from Evansville Indiana?

He ran fast down the street one day ( every parents nightmare) we are having a house remodel and one of the workers left usually locked door open. Anyway the 2 houses of neighbors have kids and a dog. He looks out window at them all the time. He doesn’t understand why… read more

Hi can anyone help me please. My 5 year old got suspended from kindergarten for biting his aid.The aid said he was under the table and he approached the aid and bit her. I am very confused because my child has not bitten since last year. He has ABA therapist 6 days a week, 2 baby sitters, his cousins and parents and none of us experienced him biting. I know my son he would not just bite you I’m guessing she just forced him to come out that table then he got mad.
I am so mad it seems like… read more

Our son is 3 and we would prefer therapists who have a play-based approach as opposed to the more old school "sit and drill" approach.
Also, are there any autism family support or social groups in Delco? We would love to get connected but haven't really gotten much information from our EI… read more
