My son is 4 years old. He was diagnosed with ASD at 2 and is still non-verbal. He has always been very sweet and gentle and happy. There was a little bit of mild biting a couple years ago when he was teething, but that stopped. He also used to pinch a little bit, but it was only once in a while and all we had to say was “safe hands” and he would stop. A couple weeks ago he starting pinching his mother on a regular basis. Always when she would either tell him it was time to… read more

How Do I Stop Diaper Picking?
My daughter sticking her hands down the back of his diaper and picking them and leaving cotton everywhere. I have recently caught her eating it
This has always been a challenge for my guy. He just starts talking or asking a question. This is a problem if I’m talking to someone else, or if I’m not facing him. When he was younger he would talk “at” me from other rooms of the house. I wish I could teach him to first say, “Mom” or touch my arm before he started talking.

Of course, I want her to be friendly, but how do you teach stranger danger awareness to ASD kiddos? I told her "I love that you wanted to say 'hi', but next time, first say 'Mom,… read more
I've decided to homeschool my child ;
I believe public school that my son is attending, doesn't have the knowledge , to give my son a good education . Does anyone know of any homeschool curriculum for specifically for special needs children ?
I'm looking for the old fashioned way of homeschooling ; that doesn't deal with technology.
If anyone went through this experience, please share your stories!
I know trouble sleeping is a common problem for people with ASD. My 3 year old at least once a night (most nights) wakes up for a good 45 min anywhere from 1 am to 3 am. She doesn't cry but just starts loudly talking or singing to herself (let me tell you, a 3 year old singing "Naaaaaants igonyaaaaaaaama bagithi babaaaaa!" from the Lion King on Broadway at 3 am sounds like it'd be funny, but it's not. ).
Is there anything that may help? She is not too hot or cold, not twisted in her pjs… read more
