What you can do today

In order to grasp the intensity of Asperger Syndrome, you as a parent or spouse have to learn to see and recognize their characteristics. It’s crucial to learn to communicate in a different way.

Reading books written by those with autism spectrum disorders has helped me to learn how to speak "autistic". This has changed the relationship with my son completely. I wish you could see him now, 7 years after his diagnosis. He has learned and achieved so many things I never thought would be possible.He still has Asperger’s and will never be cured because it is a lifelong condition. Speaking to him openly about it made him aware of his strong points and his challenges. And that openness has helped my son to accept and love himself for who he is. He is now a lively 15 year old with good grades in school, a great sense of humor and lots of potential for his future.

HOW:

I made some changes in the way I communicated with him and it had a huge impact on his behavior: It improved dramatically!

I provided our family life with more structure and routines.

I made schedules with clocks as visual aids and put those up in our house.

I started to prepare him upfront for field trips, family outings and holidays.

I made strict rules in our house and we stuck to those rules; no matter what.

I tried to focus on his strong points instead of his weaknesses.
