Time to tell

14 Dec

Has it reached that time when you have to tell your child that they have Aspergers? It’s a hard and upsetting task as me and my husband found out. Our son Giovanni took the news very well. He asked many questions (he needs all the facts) we answered them the best we could. I said mummy and daddy love you just the way you are. You have Aspergers but that doesn’t change a thing. As you are you. You are Giovanni Sarcone;)
When looking on the net for Advice I came across a fantastic blog. http://ramblingsofafrazzledmom.blogspot.com within this blog I discovered a post that was very moving but enjoyable to read this is the post that helped me when it was time to tell. Maybe it could help you too?
Super blog that I will visit again:)

A book from god

14 Dec

I have a few Aspergers books.
But Aspergers-syndrome by Tony Attwood is one of the best. Tony Attwood a clinical psychologist had written this book as a guide aimed at parents and professionals. The book has discussions, frequently asked questions, advice and suggestions on everything Aspergers. I really rate this book. It’s a must have for parents with children with Aspergers.

Getting a diagnosis

10 Dec

Are you worried that your child or someone you know has Aspergers. There are many sites on the web that offer help on getting a diagnosis. Please note that this is not an easy process. Be prepared a  for long wait.

discuss your concerns with your GP or if it is a child you are concerned about you could speak to his or her school. They may have a educational psychologist that could help.

The best way to avoid a long wait would be to chose the most costly option which is to go private. There is a great organisation which goes under the name of Oaasis. They offer a great deal of  information and support on all things AD. And if you are thinking on taking the private route this organisation really can help. To contact Oaasis you can phone them on there free number 0800 902 0732 or visit there web site at www.oaasis.co.uk.
