If you remeber when I had it a little rough a few weeks ago considering my son,who is disabled with autism.Well things are better.I decided to quit my job and stay at home with him.I have now controlled most of his behavior but I still have a hard time with keeping him clothed.I looked into many places but they just can't offer me anything,for him with out the money...I realized my son basically just has me and I'm going to be there for him.
Working and having a full time job at home was too much for me and I'm not ashamed to say that too. Well he can still stress me out but we are both happier people.He has changed much,now that he has his mommy at home.
I remember your post about your son. I'm so happy for you - you've obviously made the right decision, you seem happier and more relaxed in this post. You'll never regret your decision - just try and take care of yourself too, okay?
Just curious, how old is your son, how severe is the autism (I'm assumming fairly severe if he has a hard time staying clothed. What kind of services are you looking for.
My 20 year old step son is autistic, fairly high functioning. He was born with Fragile X syndrom, which is the causative diagnosis for the Autism. Write me in private if you prefer (and there's always the option of just plain ignoring me too.).
I'm am just looking for teaching and workshops on how I can teach my son.these people want 700.00 for a two day work shop and they won't allow me to do it for free...and there is a transportation issue for me as well. I have always been good with children and teaching them too,but this is 100% different.
Petty sent me a good book and I have started to read it.This should help me ,I hope.
He is 8 yrs old,he is moderate to severe with his autism,but he is sharp and knows a lot that is going on around him.He also understands a lot that you say to him,but he lacks verbal skills.He will keep clothes on in school and most of the time in other peoples homes,so he knows he has to keep them on,but he loves to be O'natural at home....but this is a concern for when he begins to mature.
