Pleased to meet you.

DS is 16. Mild Asperger's, extremely ADD, in the Gifted/Talented program, super sweet. Currently taking Driver's Ed (heaven help us all!)

My guy is 11. Not quite a teenager yet, but he's heading there! It's interesting because I've been noticing more maturity in some areas, but the little crying meltdowns are still there (although not nearly as often as in the past)!

DS wasn't diagnosed until he was 10. The "meltdowns" were one of the reasons that led us to get him tested. They really diminished over time. I don't remember the last time he had one.

Hi!

My DS is 13.5 and has Asperger's, ADHD, Motor Dyspraxia and Sensory Integration Dysfunction. Oh, and on top of that he has hit puberty, which I have to say is NOT fun! :scared1: :scared:

Welcome! Ask any questions...we all love to help!
