Anonymous said...

Great first show! I'll be looking for info on how to listen live. I think you have a good attitude toward and understanding of the issues that I and so many others live with. As a 55 year old, newly diagnosed Aspie, I need this kind of information to help me make sense of the world. I also have a few good stories about how AS traits can play out as we get older. Thank you so much for what you are doing.

I am listening to your 1st Mark Hutten show. I love it. It’s so funny. I was just telling my daughter the other day I hate it when people call kids with Aspergers Aspies, but after listening to you I’m good with it. I’m sure not gonna go feed my cat. (I don’t have one either) LOL....I do love your show. Now, I’m listening to it after you were on the air. When are you on the air so I can listen to you live and maybe e-mail a question? Oh and by the way, I have done so much research on Aspergers Syndrome I have actually thought I have it too.

Thank you so much Mark for all you do for the families who are struggling to help the ASPIE kid to be the best he can be and to fit into this sometimes cruel world. I really takes and village to raise a child and our faith in GOD. I am so blessed that [my grandson] has a village of people who love,care and want the best for him.

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. As the child feels worse about himself and becomes more anxious and depressed – he performs worse, socially and intellectually.

How to Prevent Meltdowns in Children on the Spectrum

Meltdowns are not a pretty sight. They are somewhat like overblown temper tantrums, but unlike tantrums, meltdowns can last anywhere from ten minutes to over an hour. When it starts, the Asperger's or HFA child is totally out-of-control. When it ends, both you and your child are totally exhausted. But... don’t breathe a sigh of relief yet. At the least provocation, for the remainder of that day -- and sometimes into the next - the meltdown can return in full force.

Parenting Defiant Teens on the Spectrum

Although Aspergers [high-functioning autism] is at the milder end of the autism spectrum, the challenges parents face when disciplining a teenager on the spectrum are more difficult than they would be with an average teen. Complicated by defiant behavior, the teen is at risk for even greater difficulties on multiple levels – unless the parents’ disciplinary techniques are tailored to their child's special needs.

Older Teens and Young Adult Children with ASD Still Living At Home

Your older teenager or young “adult child” isn’t sure what to do, and he is asking you for money every few days. How do you cut the purse strings and teach him to be independent? 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.
