Is it true that people with Autism like to talk about a favorite interest ?

Is it true that people with Autism like to talk about a favorite interest ?

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.

Changing words

Changing words

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.

My son is starting puberty and acting innapropriately

Hi All, my 11 year old is high functioning and also has ADHD. I think he is starting puberty and is having a difficult time controlling his impulses. There have been a few incidences and I have no idea how to handle this. Last week he was in the boys bathroom when another child walked in and basically said, "I'll show you mine if you show me yours". The other boy was rightfully upset and embarrassed and told the teacher. Then tonight we were at my cousins… read more

She gets frequent UTIs (no structural issues… read more

What has your experience with public schools been like? Have you had to fight a school to the teeth to address your child's needs?

What has your experience with public schools been like? Have you had to fight a school to the teeth to address your child's needs?

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?
