Working with the school after an Asperger's diagnosis

One of the main reasons we got a formal diagnosis for T was that without it, we couldn’t access assistance for her, either through her school or from other organisations.  Everything we looked at said applicants “must have a diagnosis of Autism or Asperger's Syndrome ” so without a bit of paper confirming what we  suspected, we weren’t going to get anywhere.When we received her diagnosis from Dr. Huber,…See More

Safety in routines - Life with Asperger's Syndrome

One of the common traits of Asperger’s is a need for routines and knowing what’s happening next.  Like any traits of Autism, the need for routines varies from person to person, but we’re aware that T’s routines can sometimes almost tip over into looking like OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).  It can be difficult for us to separate her need for orderliness, routine and repetition from possible OCD and the two…See More

There's no magic pill to cure Autism

The main reason we got a diagnosis for T was so she could access programs through school and other organisations to develop and hopefully improve her social skills. However, on a personal level we wanted to find out why she wasn’t like other kids, and to try to understand what we could do to help her.Once we we got her formal diagnosis, I went off to the library to check out every book I could find on Asperger’s Syndrome to discover exactly what it was, what the prognosis was, and what we could…See More

Good days.... and bad days..... with a child with Asperger's Syndrome

Last Thursday was a good day for T. This Monday was not a good day for T.I know and understand that every parent has good and bad days with their kids, but for parents of NT (Neurotypical, or “normal”) kids, even though a bad day might annoy the heck out of you, at least you probably realise it was just one day.  Your…See More

The Road To A Formal Asperger's Diagnosis

My husband says he started noticing T was different from other kids when she was about two or three.  In particular, in social situations she would prefer to play on her own, rather than join in with other kids.  There were other odd things she did around the house but for various reasons, they didn't seek professional help or…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
My name is Kate, and I published the first post on my blog, Our Aspie Kid, in October 2017, when we were approaching the one year anniversary of our daughter's diagnosis with Asperger Syndrome. I talk about the process of getting a formal diagnosis, the help we’ve been able to get for her since then, and the general off-the-wall moments of having a 12 year old that sees the world a little differently!
