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

Is there any way or any link you can give me to help me cope with aspergers disorder for a fifteen year old kid?

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

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

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

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

What can we do for an 18 year old with aspergers who seems to be getting more violent when he doesn't get what he wants? He still has not gotten his drivers license and is refusing to try. He also refuses to get a job, which he has held down one before.

What can we do for an 18 year old with aspergers who seems to be getting more violent when he doesn't get what he wants? He still has not gotten his drivers license and is refusing to try. He also refuses to get a job, which he has held down one before.

This is difficult.: Difficult because the 18yo is now an adult in most states. As an adult the 18yo has a right to make one's own choice even if the choice is not perfect. The answer would be to find a counselor who the 18yo trusts and who can help the 18yo to make educated choices. However, if the 18yo is not able to take care of oneself there may be a legal option to find a guardian who can step in. ...Read more

What is the best way to tell my children about our divorce? Our son hugo has aspergers and our 14 year old has celiac and type one diabetes

What is the best way to tell my children about our divorce? Our son hugo has aspergers and our 14 year old has celiac and type one diabetes

No one best way: I believe it's impossible to predict the BEST way to go about telling children about a divorce. The method should be one agreed-upon by both parents and I would think should involve either a family meeting or at least one parent telling both children at the same time. And then, the other parent having a conference if it's not possible to have the whole family together. Best of luck to you all. ...Read more

What are the signs of being a sociopath and having aspergers syndrome?

Different motives: Here's a simplistic account from a non-psychiatrist who's seen a lot. Both treat others badly. Sociopaths are indifferent to the feelings of others, and cause pain because they enjoy doing it. They don't care. Aspies cannot understand the feelings of others and do not mean to be jerks. They are very grateful when guided to being more diplomatic and able to read others. ...Read more
