And it has been great to hear your and other Aspie's perspectives on this. My son is an inscrutible puzzle, and your perspective help...

CWA - This is an interesting approach. Is this what you do for all behavior issues, or just at school. I have to admit, it feels like doing nothing at all in some ways, but I am open-minded and desperate. Pretty much. We sort of operate under the assumption that all "bad" behaviors fall into one of...

...but I also let home be a safe place for him, the way I need home to be a safe place for me, the way anyone needs home to be a safe place for them. I think this is so crucial for our kids, to have a place they can stim and touch and mumble or whatever. Recharge and gather the energy they need to ...

I tried, last year, to punish my son for every single time he got out of line at school. By the end of the year, I had a sullen, deceitful, miserable, tearful little boy whose behavior had barely improved in some ways and was worse in others. I had a happy kindergarten teacher-- and in-laws (whose ...

Ten... That was one of the years I spent sicking out of school left and right. Bullies, rules that sure seemed to apply differently to me than to everyone else, friends that weren't even really friends, instructions I didn't understand... ...I wasn't exactly faking. Those headaches and stomachaches...

If he simply hasn't got the skills to do better at school than he is doing, punishing him at home could certainly lead to panic about school. With our daughter we had to separate out what she could do and then figure out how we would help her do better. She has AS ADHD and learning disabilities and...

My son used to say that he wished school was 7 days week, and 9 hours a day. Not because he loved school, but because school should be school, no homework, no transitions, just get it done with. How different are the weekends for your son? Is he sleeping in more? Are the weekends too short ... or t...

Easier said than done indeed. If he was already dressed, it might be possible. Today, we started to do it, but he was in a t shirt and underpants. Is it worth humiliating him at school? I'm certain that if I tried to force him dressed, I would fail. The kid is a tank. No, it isn't worth humiliating...

So, my 10 year old won't go to school on Mondays, and I don't know what to do. He used to always say he was sick on Monday mornings, but now he has "panic attacks." He has a fear of storms, particularly "super cell thunderstorms," which terrify him. He is constantly monitoring the weather and if it ...

Thanks, guys. He has been doing a lot better since he went back to school on Thursday. I know it is only two days, but they were near perfect days. I don't know if it is because of the change in discipline or the upped medication, but I guess we'll stick with both. :) Last night, I took him to this ...

Yeah, I'm in Missouri in the US. He had an IEP last year, but we haven't had a meeting yet this year. He saw a behavioral therapist for all of last year and most of the year before, but she moved out of town, and we haven't seen the new one yet. He seems to have the most issues in PE and music class...

My Aspie son is having a real hard time in the 2nd grade. His teacher last year was amazing, and she just seemed to intuitively know when he was losing focus. She would - without even missing a beat in her teaching - just walk over and place a hand on his shoulder when he would drift off, bringing h...

http://www.hookedonmma.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/logo_ufc_old.jpg I remember back when I was in college, I ran across a dvd at the local video store for oddballs called The Ultimate Fighting Championship. I rented it and my roommate and I watched it, instantly hooked. We watched 5 or 6 of them...
