It seems like everything my wife and I try doesn't change her behavior. Will she always just not listen? It has been causing fights between my wife and I because I think she is being too hard on her. We're at a loss.
Jonathan will come home from school and strip down to his underwear. At school he rolls his pant legs up as well as his sleeves. He lifts his shirt up exposing his chest and belly. I'm thinking it's a sensory issue but what do I do? He even refuses to wear his coat, gloves and hat and it's 15 degrees outside
We have had an ongoing battle over haircuts since Liam was 2. Its a constant struggle. I have been doing his hair since the beginning of the pandemic, and it looks like it lol. I keep thinking if I could just let it grow, we could put it in a ponytail and not have to worry about it (he loves a ponytail for some reason) but his hair is so straight it grows right into his eyes, and for a fellow who struggle with eye contact, he needs to be able to see!

This happened a lot when he was elementary school (4th and 5th grade). His teacher told me about it, and she made sure he can only choose to use the iPad and watch YouTube on Fridays.

He’s a sophomore in high school now.

Not sure if its different in other states I am in california. Do adults with autism qualify for disability and or social security? Thakjs all in advance for answering my question.
I'm so tired of people telling me to "take care of myself" and to not forget "self-care". It is important, I know, but being told those words just feels like another thing on my never-ending to-do list. Instead of saying the words, why not just do something good for a caregiver that already has her plate full?
So my son is 7. Still not sure what type of autism he has. But I just don't know right now.... He was with his dads side for Christmas and was a little angel. Didn't do anything miachevious. And with me hes different. Which I understand since hes with me 24/7. But I notice my underwear goes missing and he had a pair under his bed and was wearing another pair. And took a pair of his cousins. When I ask why? He answers back in a mumbling tone.. I don't know mom... It's just been really concerning… read more
