I have to. With 3 males in the house. And one of them being an Aspie and another having Autistic like traits. We didn’t continue with testing on that child because he needs no extra support. He’s the straight A child that doesn’t have to work for it.
Then I have my Aspie that works Sooo very hard. Has to work for everything. Has an IEP at school. Is in a peer support group at school that he really enjoys.
Anyway. These children are like a bull in a China house. They run me over and twist the rules. So Since 2004 this house has run on lists and rules.
And it runs great! Occasionally we will have a child slip up. But not often. The children know the rules. They are posted. And the children signed the rules.
http://soundcloud.com/garageninja1/church-music We really enjoyed going to a new Church this morning. Here is a sample of the music they played this morning. They have a band. People were very warm and welcoming. My aspie was on overload. But did well till someone asked his name and grade of school. There was an awkward silence as he figured out what his name and grade was. If we continue to go there we will share with them that he has aspergers. But there is no reason to share yet. 🙂
