My 7 year old son is very high functioning. Hes in a general ed classroom and is very social. Hes had a therapist come to his School Since he was 2 so its normal to him. That said, weve never talked to him about his diagnosis. He hasnt asked, but im feeling like its coming and want to be prepared.

Is there any thing can help autistic kid to stay asleep during the night? My son usually gets up in the middle of the night for 2- 3 hours then he goes back to sleep . Now he is 7 years old and we had this sleep problem since he was a baby . We had tried several kind of sleep medications but nothing really worked . Any advice would be appreciated.
My son is arguing with me that it's not true. However, I have Autism and I talked about my favorite topic even if others weren't into that.
Does anybody else's kids dosntchange words? Or not like words? Kianna doesn't like the words big or brain to name a couple; or she doesn't like me to praise her. (good job) If she sees the word big she changes it to large, brain to cranium and mom to mommy and dad to daddy. Just to name the most used.
Does anyone know of a Pediatric chiropractor in Chula Vista/San Diego that accepts insurance?

This is my first post, so thanks in advance.
My 9 (almost 10) yo daughter is autistic, has ADHD, SPD, ODD, anxiety, and bladder dysfunction to name a few. I hate listing out her "labels" because that is not who she is; however, because of all of these, she has difficulty making sure to drink enough through the day AND does not use the bathroom properly...holds until too late and also wears pullups at night. She gets frequent UTIs (no structural issues… read more
Bullying is such a constant in my area. How do you speak to schools without the issue being swept under the rug or getting everyone on the defensive? Is there a way to get a child into a more Autism structured environment?
