response to whitelilac - our son was around 6. he was first diagnosed with adhd at 3, entered the early intervention program. he had a hard time starting meds. we finally found a neurologist we could work with and she mentioned to us that our son had strong as characteristics.

Hello everyone,
My son, Brandon is a 14-y.o diagnosed with Asperger’s last fall, he is a typical Aspie in the social and emotional contexts. As parents we initiated the counseling and diagnosis process, knowing that the issues we had faced for over two years were not “age and stage” related. As his mother I knew there was more to what was going on plus all the differences I’d seen in Brandon and his peers for too many years. After we received the same diagnoses from two different psychologists we notified his school and it then took nine months to get Brandon tested through the school district for special education services. Although he has been determined eligible it was the day before the school classes were over for the year before we had the first IEP meeting so needless to say that is an on going fight to get him a well worked and established plan. The reason for all the hurdles is because to most people our son is just one of those really bright quirky kids especially since Brandon attended Montessori school till third grade, when based on grades and test scores we switched to public schools with advanced placement classes. Right now Brandon is away from home for the first time attending a special summer camp; we have high expectations of his camp experience.

I am mother to Jake. He is 14 years old. He was diagnosed with PDD-NOS when he was five years old. He was diagnosed with Kanner's Syndrome (early infantile autism) when he was 12 years old by the Autism Research Institute E2. He was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, Inattentive ADHD, and Dysgraphia when he was 13.

I tend to believe that he falls somewhere in the middle. He had signs of autism from birth. There was never any regression. He had speech delays. He has an above average IQ. He doesn't really seek out friends. He likes to be alone.

I am the co-founder of the Lee's Summit Autism Support Group. My co-founder and I started our group in November, 2006. We are working with other families to make much needed changes in the education system in the state of Missouri.

Hi! I'm curious when you started the chelation etc...My son is 12 and I only know people much younger using more of the biomed approach. We use the diet, (GF and Feingold)as our main intervention up to this point, which has been great for him. Thank you.

Hi, My son Jacob was diagnosed with Aspergers in November. He is 13. I knew from birth there was something going on with him, but was told he was "shy", or "stubborn" even "uncontrollable". We were happy to know we werent crazy, but are at a loss of where to go now...We live in a very small town, and are at a loss of where to go to have him tested further. Any help of where to look would be great. Thank you
