Enjoy being a co-leader! There are some good people here!
Like your son, my oldest is considered HFA but leaning toward Aspbergers. He is now 19 and was diagnosed at age 5. My younger son was diagnosed earlier the same year at age 3; he is now 17 and is more profound in his disability.
I am also bipolar which I find is quite common among us mom's of autistics. I wish you luck on your weight loss journey!

Hi, my name is Tura. My son,Desmond (12) is on the spectrum and has been treated for as long as I have known him, pretty much, in one capacity or another and started taking meds around 1st grade. It's been challenging, dealing with the different "experts" who really are throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks. My own challenges make things even more interesting. (bipolar, ADHD, OCD) He recently started seeing a new doc and hopefully, will get back into therapy since I finally fixed his insurance issue. What a nightmare that was! She's really good, so hopefully, he can get right back in. In addition to Aspergers, he has learning issues and ADHD. He's a sweet kid and is really starting to sound like a teenager. Oh yeah, puberty alert. Lol He'll be 13 in March.

Hello, I am now a team co-leader for this group. I am excited about this. I am just starting on my journey of learning about Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have just learned within the last year that my oldest has Autism Disorder. He was diagnosed with this and not Aspergers because he had a language delay but we were told that he strongly leans toward Aspergers. I have two daughters as well and I am educating myself so that I can help my son as well has help my daughters to understand their brother.

I'm looking forward to working, supporting and getting to know everyone!!!

Marjorie

I am now the team leader for this group! I am excited about this and hope to see lots of talk between us all! I Have intro'd before but its been a while so I thought I would do it again and let you know about the change in leaders.
I have a total of 10 kids! 5 home still! 2 are aspergers, 1 is somewhere in spectrum but unsure where at this point! I also home school. I also offer Holistic health consulting and work with a lot of people with kids in the spectrum! I offer a natural approach to some of the issues that come along with spectrum issues.
I hope to help and answer questions anyone may have, and hope to just offer support and get to know you all!
Jaelene
