Hi, I'm new here too, and thanks to a very good friend, I found this place........I am learning everything I can about AS, because I have a 14 yo son who was diagnosed a year ago. Until then I had never even heard of Asperger's. Recently my son had a "melt-down" and he had to be hosptilized. I have been begging for information on AS, but until this recent episode, I haven't been able to get my hands on any information at all......Due to my diligence and not accepting, "We just have to see what happens as we go along", as an answer, I finally got some very good information..........Now, LOL, I am being overwhelmed with incoming information and for that I am ETERNALLY Grateful.....

Herllo and welcome to the board!

Wow! You waited a log time for a diagnosis. You are right. Sometimes a Mom has to keep pushing for those answers.

I am sorry to hear your boy ended up in hospital. I hope he is doing OK now.

Please pull up a chair, grab a cookie and make yourself at home.

Welcome to the board.

It's a great place to hang out, share, commiserate, and vent with people who understand what it's like to live with the spectrum. Glad you found us! I hope to get to know you better over time. Check out our chat tonight if you can. It's a great way to get to know people better. Hope to 'see' you around.

Andrea, mom to
