I am new here, my son AJ is 9 and was diagnosed OCD, ODD, ADHD and Over Sensory and Hypersensitive to light and sounds until he was diagnosed with Asperger's when he was diagnosed with Asperger's where all the above diagnoses fall into the that unmbrella of AS. He has an IEP, goes to regular public school with the assistance of a classroom aid to help navigate him socially through the class. Although he recieves every service under the sun to help him, the challenge with AS is that he have such difficulty making and maintaining friendships, which is his biggest weakness. He is gifted in art and math, has a outrageous sense of humor, loves animals, a self proclaimed inventor and scientists and the list goes on. But....it's heartbreaking to see him struggle with social relationships. He was oblivious to his lack of socialness up until recently and now that he is older it bothers him and tried so hard to make friends. My son CF with Autism with mild mental retardation, although more severe, doesn't share the same difficulties, but have other issues that make parenting 2 children with Autism Spectrum disorders such a juggling task. I've been looking into special school for children with Autism with no luck. Both my children, my youngest CF is 8 with Autism with mild mental retardation, would benifit from a tailored school that works specifically on such issues. Having two children with autism, one one the far left of the spectrum while the other is on the other end teedering on the fence between being typical but yet with AS quirks, is a challnge and a gift. Looking for others with same situation.
