Hi, I am very interested in your website. I have an 11 year old Aspie son who can be very aggressive when his triggers (antecedents) are not prevented and we are trying to teach him how to self-regulate his behavior (with the help of school staff, a school psychologist and a private social worker). Please send me the free newsletter about "parenting Aspergers children."

My child has been rejected by his peers, ridiculed and bullied !!!

Social rejection has devastating effects in many areas of functioning. Because the ASD child tends to internalize how others treat him, rejection damages self-esteem and often causes anxiety and depression.

Parents of teens with ASD face many problems that other parents do not. Time is running out for teaching their adolescent how to become an independent adult.

Parenting Children and Teens with High-Functioning Autism

Two traits often found in kids with High-Functioning Autism are “mind-blindness” (i.e., the inability to predict the beliefs and intentions of others) and “alexithymia” (i.e., the inability to identify and interpret emotional signals in others). These two traits reduce the youngster’s ability to empathize with peers. As a result, he or she may be perceived by adults and other children as selfish, insensitive and uncaring.
