Here's what people benefiting from our Aspergers advise are saying ...


"I subscribed to this Community about a year ago in hopes of finding support and sharing experiences with other parents who are also given the challenge of nuturing a teenager/young adult who has been given the two-edged gift of Aspergers.
 
I have found immense rewards of being allowed to be part of this Community - mostly in articles, antedoctal reports from other parents and the always helpful comments and suggestions of Dave Angel.
 
If you think that your family are all alone in this big old world struggling with something you don't understand, the Parenting Aspergers Community is a lifeline."

""Hi Dave, just to let you know and other mums out there, that your website makes you feel your not alone and isolated, I can send a mesage anytime, and help is there very soon, thanks for your help Dave"

"The Parenting Aspergers Community Web site has helped me with my difficult journey as a parent of an Asperger child. It is comforting to know that when I have a question or having a problem with my Asperger son that I have an incredible resource at the tip of my fingers.
 
I can post my question or problem on the Parenting blog for all the Parenting Asperger Community members who have Aspergers children also, to view and respond to my question or problem. Within minutes I usually have some great advice from parents whom have had the exact problem with their child and has given me invaluable advice from their experience.
 
Also David Angel the Founder of Parenting Aspergers Community will always monitor the advice given and give his expert solution on what I need to do to address the problem. I can honestly say that I get more out of Parenting Asperger Community website than what I would ever get from my son's Psychologist or Psychiatrist.
 
This website is an incredible resource and worth the membership fee ten fold! You won't be disappointed but pleasantly surprised at all the website offers. All the best on your journey"

How do you explain to your pre-teen (12 years old) that his diagnosis is not a "negative" thing? It may not be as difficult as you believe to explain the diagnosis to your child. Many children with Asperger's know well in advanced that they are different even before they are diagnosed. It all depends on how you have handled talking to the child about Asperger's before he or she received the diagnosis. Some parents keep their child in the dark about what is going on when the child is visiting medical professionals and getting tested to diagnose Asperger's. Other parents choose to talk to their child each step of the way so that the child is not in the dark about the process taking place.
