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"

Aspergers in Girls - A Specialist Subject!

Aspergers in girls has always been diagnosed significantly less than in boys. This has led to girls and their parents being comparatively short-changed when it comes to advice and information. There is now thankfully more information coming out, but it's still a pretty under-researched area. Girls have many different factors to contend with than boys. For example the way that girls make relationships, how they view the world, what happens in their bodies and how their brains are made up all differ significantly from boys.  

This department is an ongoing project within the site to bring the best and most recent information about Aspergers in girls. So that parents can find useful sources of information, as and when they need them, in order to help them offer even better support for your daughter.

How can I get my daughter to accept that she has Asperger's?

Aspergers in Girls - Why is it so difficult to diagnose Aspergers in Girls?

Here are a few of the classic characteristics of Asperger's Syndrome along with the differences found in girls. . . . keep reading

Aspergers in Girls - I have a 15 year old daughter who has Aspergers. We are having all sorts of trouble getting her to follow everyday rules, especially where school is concerned. She is already onto her third school in 3 years due to her resistance to following the rules regarding makeup, phone and basically the dress code that is required. Also a lot of her problem is her social inability which causes a lot of concern because we have been having major dramas with her making and maintaining friendships due to her high demand and control issues. Do you think that I should put her back on some sort of medication to try and de-stress her a bit as we are slowly running out of options?

Aspergers in Girls - I have a 14-year-old granddaughter who has Asperger's syndrome. She is very intelligent and capable but hates school. She also has ADD (not hyperactivity). Her last year helper was terrible and made things so much worse. She did really well on her yearly achievement test but the teacher read the questions to her. My question is: What is the responsibility of the school? I just don't think they are helping her in the ways she needs help. What should her parents do?

Your granddaughter struggles with Asperger's as well as ADD and the combination of these two factors can make school a difficult place for her to function well. Her parents need to meet with the school administration and her teachers and come up with a plan of accommodations for your granddaughter that can help her succeed in the classroom. . . . keep reading
Aspergers in Girls - I have an issue with your Asperger's tips, they are all geared to boys and the girls present very different symptoms in a lot of areas, especially at school. My 12 yr old tries to participate and when the teacher responds negatively or worse with sarcasm, she either gets really upset or shuts down. She tries to interact socially, but 'trips over her own tongue' and will say things to really upset her peers. Can you help?

It is thought that Asperger's affects children at a rate of ten boys to one girl. . . . keep reading

Problems with personal hygiene are very common with teenagers who have Asperger's. No one knows exactly why, but they may feel that refusing to bathe, wear clean clothes, and maintain good personal hygiene gives them control over their own lives. Or they may avoid these tasks because ... . . . keep reading

Aspergers in Girls - Teaching my daughter "right and wrong" My daughter goes to school and tells them everything (a dear friend of mine is an aide in her room)I try to explain to her that some things are not other people business, may be private or that they most likely would not be interested.
