Any Parents In North Texas Home School? Any Groups Out There That Meet For Social Opportunities?

I am the mom of an 8 yr old boy with PPD-NOS and ADHD. We homeschool and are looking for homeschooling groups that focus on special needs children and have social gatherings or group activities. Any groups in North Texas who do this? We live in Anna, TX (north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex)

How Do We Tell My Sons Girlfriend He Has Aspergers

How Do We Tell My Sons Girlfriend He Has Aspergers

My son is 16 and was just diagnosed with Aspergers. He has been dating a girl for 2 years, but she lives over a hour away. Since they hardly see each other she doesn't realize the extent of his symptoms. My husband and I are extremely nervous on how to tell her and her parents the news. As anyone had experience in this? It will crush him if she breaks up with him because of this.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

I would leave that decision to your son. 16 is a little too old for mom to disclose information like that without his consent, from a 16 year old's point of view anyway. I would be afraid you might… read more

How To Get An Non-Verbal Autistic Child To Allow Front Teeth To Be Brushed.

Alright, My 16yo (to be 17yo) Son allows me to help brush all his teethe except his Front ones. I was able to get that far by Using a "spin Brush" and "Sensodyne" Toothpaste or another Toothpaste that is for Sensitive Teeth. Now we are stuck. We cannot get to the Front Teeth because the Tightens his Lips over those teeth. Has anyone a Suggestion to overcome this Behavior?

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

Maybe he just likes the way the brush feels on his lips? My baby girl has had ABA for brushing teeth. I just brush her lips first and then we do the teeth. It took a lot of work to get there but now… read more
