i'm a 26 year old single mother of a 7 year old boy recently diagnosed with asperger's. after a lot of behavior problems, the school did a full report while he was in 1st grade.. psycological, speech and views from his teacher. his doctor has also diagnosed him with ADD.
i'm new to all of this and still doing my research. i was hoping some of the parents on this list could give me advice.. tips.. book and website reccomendations.
my son is very active and i love him so much. i want him to have a great time in school and have a great life. i just don't know what to do sometimes. i will do anything and everything in my power to help him. sometimes he acts like a 3 year old.. he is always laughing when i try to discipline him.. nothing i do seems to work. he also chews off all his nails and the skin on his fingers. is this normal for asperger's or am i battling something completely different?
thank you in advance for any advice or comments.
