Many of the conversations your ASD son or daughter has had have generally been about knowledge and facts, not about feelings, opinions, and interactions. As a result, your "special needs" child does not really know how the world works.

Lately my 4yr old thinks because we count to 3 to warn him his behaviour is not appropriate and if he continues we take his game away that he can count to 3 then do as he wishes, finding it very hard to define parent and child roles and this video made it clear to me some of the reasons why that is so, Thank you

He says that they have tiny brains and are trying to control his mind if they do not like something that he does or if they ask him to change the subject. I have tried explaining it millions of times...It seems to plague him constantly...any suggestions?
