My Son Is Picky With Pants-anyone With Older Teens Finding The Right Clothes For Graduation ?

I have a hard time finding my son pants due to sensory,etc. He will need to dress up for his Graduation photo and graduation. Possibly the prom as well. What did you do to get your teen through that?

How Do We Help A 3.5 Year Old With Receptive Language (labeling Items) If We Know He Hears Us, But Is Unable To Process The Words?

How Do We Help A 3.5 Year Old With Receptive Language (labeling Items) If We Know He Hears Us, But Is Unable To Process The Words?

We have hit a wall with ABA and receptive language. My 3.5 year old son has outsmarted our therapists for 9 months, we though he knew labels for common items. We would ask him to hand us an item from a field of 6 items. We figured out that he was memorizing locations or items, or would only get it correct if prompted first. We know he hears the command "Give me...", but is unable to process it. For example we will say "give me sock" and he will say "ock" several times and hand you a spoon… read more

Work with pictures for communication, so he can understand that pictures have very specific meaning. Do you use pictures for food, drinks, things like that? If not, you could try. As for therapy, it… read more

Any Successes In Matching ASD Kids To Create Meaningful Friendships?

Any Successes In Matching ASD Kids To Create Meaningful Friendships?

Hi all, 9 year old son. Like most, struggles with social interactions and therefore very isolated at school. Others will play with him if he asks or if mom/dad set up a play date....but never been invited to a play date from them or a birthday party. Think its more of the parents honestly being intimidated or being worried of how to handle him (even though it would be fine). Have often though I need to be more aggressive in searching out others like my son in the area that are struggling… read more

Full-time ABA, No Nap??? Is That Typical?

Full-time ABA, No Nap??? Is That Typical?

We toured one ABA clinic, and for full-time (9am-3pm), there's no break for a nap. Is that typical? My little guy is only 3 and accustomed to a nap.

Behavior Therapy? Vs Social Skills Groups

Behavior Therapy? Vs Social Skills Groups

Social Skills group have not worked for Daniel, b/c he doesn't absorb the info. Should I look into 1:1 behavior therapy to help him with social skill and anger management? I dunno, we're a little "therapy drunk" and not sure it's worth the effort/cost to run around....?

Are There Any Major Concerns/debates On Having Our Autistic Children Vaccinated For The Flu? This Topic Really Worries Me!

Are There Any Major Concerns/debates On Having Our Autistic Children Vaccinated For The Flu? This Topic Really Worries Me!

My son is four, autistic, and desperately waiting for that "Medical" diagnosis. I'm really concerned about the "vaccination" debates on giving them to autistic children and have stopped allowing him to be vaccinated until I am more educated and confident in my decision. Now I'm terrified of the flu and how well he can deal with it. I believe he is in the beginning stages of having it and I'm real close to kicking myself in the rear!!

What are the concerns on this and is the flu shot as… read more

Girls?

Girls?

It's been difficult to find other females on the spectrum. Peers and playdates for my 7 y.o. daughter are getting fewer and farther between, and while we (she is PDD-NOS, I am an Aspie) share many of HFA's more common characteristics, our social and physiological challenges manifest differently. Women and girls, what are your experiences? How do you cope and connect?

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

There needs to be a big change and/or movement in raising awareness and changing the scope of testing that is done on females because they present very differently than males and are often times… read more
