Social give and take: Social give and take problems: not having good eye contact to not being able to join up with peers ideas for play. Prefer to be alone/not seeking to start social interaction. This is central and it is not situational e.g like a social anxiety. Two other key areas: social communication probs and restricted patterns of behavior.

I have a 3 year old diagnosed with aspergers. What can we expect as treatment?

Aspergers Treatment: I have a family member with Aspergers. This is similar to autism, but is a much more mild form. You are fortunate that the diagnosis was made at an early age. With therapy they can learn how to interact in social situations and even go off to college and become very independent contributors to society. I would find a specialist who treats Aspergers and autism as soon as possible and begin therapy ...Read more

How would a fourteen-year-old with aspergers react to something loud like an alarm going off?

Depends on Child: It all depends on that individual child. While many children with autism spectrum disorder, including asperger's, share similar characteristics, they all have individual traits and qualities. There is no way to predict how any one teenager will react to a loud noise. ...Read more

It depends...: Like any other human, people with asperger's will react to a change in the environs as you and i might. A person with aspergers tends to want a routine in the day, more so then others and a disruption may lead to difficulty adjusting to the disruption. Aspergers is a spectrum for severity. The more severe the disorder to more fixed in the routine, and the more that person will react to a change. ...Read more

Expectations: If you want a smooth-talking, team-sport-focused, extraverted chummy-with-everybody life-of-the-party politician, you will be bitterly disappointed and you and junior will both lose. Aspies tend to be very grateful for opportunities to take part in strength / endurance sports rather than team sports, learn basic social skills that don't come easy, & enjoy academic pleasures most people never have. ...Read more

Ask school: The best think for your child is for you to team up with his teachers and school to get their opinion as to how he is doing. The school district is required by law to evaluate him to see if he needs special help if he has a confirmed medical diagnosis that may get in the way of his education. Sometimes you have to push the school to do it but collaborating is always best. Ask if he needs an iep. ...Read more
