Help my ex wont give my son his meds on the weekends or vacation time he has him. so my son goes days without it and comes home more upset and violent with his sisters and me. I have try to talk to his father about making sure that he gets it but got told that he can give it to himself which the doctor says no because of where he is on the spectrum. I have tired talking to DFCS where I live and got told they cant do anything because I have the child most of the time. What else can I do because… read more
My son just turned 4 today and is a only child. I'm 44 my wife is 46. She is thinking of doing ivf or possibly adopting so my son has someone to care for him in the future? I feel he may be on the high end of the spectrum? How do adults do in life with autism? I know this is a difficult question to ask since the spectrum varies so widely. With autism growing so much I hope there are measures in place so they are not discriminated against when they are older. Thank you all in advance for… read more
How do you transition an 11 yo from rolling his whole body on the wall. He doesn't do this all the time just when he goes down the hallway. He loves it and sometimes he doesn't because he knows he's not supposed. Once he starts you can't stop him. He'll go back and forth a few times.

Anybody have ideas about chillin in airports? My 20 year old is going to Alaska- cross country with us to visit her brother! She loves to engage people by poking or stepping on their feet- yikes!
My daughter has a weird way of vocalizing why she prefers to be at home and never to go somewhere new. She particularly does this more if there is a surprizing change to her schedule or routine. I just got a weird take on her vocalizations from a specialist.
To me she trying to express sensory overload.
She also goes into shutdown in public places with too many people.
How bout in southern Nj. I've been looking too.p
So for the past few weeks my son has been coming home from school and the second he gets in the house all hell breaks loose. Seriously it's like Jekyll and Hyde. I got him off the bus and he was happy and I was asking him about his day. When we got inside the door, his 2 year old sister came up to him and said "hey, we're watching Frosty!" He yelled and pushed her and screamed "No, don't talk to me!!". So I took him to his room and told him to hang his coat up and he threw a major fit and… read more
