Sleep Troubles With ASD?

Sleep Troubles With ASD?

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.

Taking Advantage

Taking Advantage

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?

Do You Get Along With Neighbors?

Do You Get Along With Neighbors?

Do they understand Autism at all? Do they have any compassion or empathy? My neighbors (2 houses ) act like my son has a disease and have told me that they don’t want their kids scared by him or near their property. 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

5 Year Old Suspended

5 Year Old Suspended

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 so mad it seems like… read more
