Feeling a bit flummoxed today.
My middle son, Chris, who is 19, has Asperger's.
My great-nephew was originally diagnosed as PDD-NOS, but the flag finally came down on Aspie.
So you might have an aspie?
As with many things, if you line up all the experts they point in every direction.
Thanks for responding.
See my post to Chris's mom about the behaviors.
Interesting about your SIL.
One nice thing about right now, is because all of the little kids who were diagnosed as Aspies 10, 15, 18 years ago are hitting adulthood, there are far more resources available for late teen/early 20s Aspies.
Here are some things for you and your son to check out:
GRASP: The Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome PartnershipGRASP is an educational and advocacy organization serving individuals on the autism spectrum. Founded and operated by individuals with Asperger Syndrome and high-functioning autism, GRASP strives to educate the public about ASDs, provide a supportive environment for persons on the spectrum, and celebrate the unique strengths and abilities these individuals possess.www.grasp.org
There's lots more out there, but this should get you started.
Thank you so much!
