  1. I'm very thankful for WTMF community! I'm seeking wisdom from parents of any 2E kids who have experience with this scenario: 1) DS (or DD) homeschooling through high school to college; 2) highly gifted, loves learning, willing to work hard; 3) but is "low energy" (like many Aspie/ASD), needs plenty of down time alone; 4) considering pursuit of admission to top tier STEM colleges; 5) is very capable of the LEVEL of work that requires, but parents have doubts about ability to handle QUANTITY needed to be a competitive applicant; 6) Christian (student and parents). Ultimate goal is to most
  2. I've posted for years about my son. Today, I think I have a complete picture. We had him evaluated again in January, and today got the diagnosis of HFA (Aspergers). No real learning disabilities, though he is behind in math and writing/spelling. His verbal comprehension and spatial reasoning are superior, but working memory and processing speed are low. The evaluator's recommendations were to explore medication to help with anxiety and go to school. I will discuss meds and psych referrals with his doctor next week, but I don't think we are to that point yet. I want to keep working o
  3. Hi! My name is Kurstin, and I am a former public school teacher. I taught high school English for 18 years. My subjects included AP English, Journalism/Yearbook, and Drama/Acting. I moved out of teaching into a School Improvement Facilitator position and also worked as an Asst. Professor in the Curriculum & Instruction/Instructional Technology program at UT Austin. I am happily married and have a 10 yo son who is GT, 2e, and has Aspergers. My son was enrolled in a fabulous charter school, but we have moved, and I plan on homeschooling him this year. He is entering 5th grade but is academi
  4. Hi, Our 9 year old son has recently been diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder and High Functioning Autism/Asperger's. He has long had problems in loud environments and classrooms, although he does great in one on one play. He has difficulties socializing in school and functioning in a typical classroom, but he is very happy, sweet and obedient in safe environments with one or two friends. A homeschooling friend and former teacher has suggested that my son might enjoy being in her son's Pokemon league. I knew very little about Pokemon until yesterday, when her son and daug
  5. Has anyone out there see, heard of, or used these workbooks? http://www.dyslexiagames.com/ I would love to hear your opinions.
  6. Just wondering if there is anyone out there who has "given in" to an aspie that is very computer motivated. I am not a big fan of screen time, however, he really learns best with computer based programs. It seems to go against everything in him to sit with a book. I try and try but it is wearing me out. I am teaching two other children ages are 11, 9yo aspie and an almost 6 yo who is currently being assessed for autism, hfa. Any tips, tricks, suggestions? thanks!
  7. My son is about to be 12 in 2 weeks and has finished all 6 levels of Horizons math as of January. We started MUS Algebra as a pre-Algebra after lots of research and talking with other moms. I knew he was a bit young but my plan was just to do 1/2 a lesson each day and just take our time. In MUS Algebra the first several lessons are review of Horizons so I felt really good about that. It just looks a bit different since it is a new program yet it's the same material. BUT Ds is struggling mightily. I think it's more an ADHD issue than anything. In each problem there are so many steps and thing
  8. Hello, I have a son that is going on 11 years old who is possibly on the ASD spectrum/asperger. My pediatrician recommended the Neurologist Garrett Burris 2 years ago and he took a wait and see attitude, with perhaps trials of intuniv later on. I have only seen him 2xs and now he has moved away. We are very leery about starting meds anyway. We have since tried Dr. Amy Davis, a DAN doctor for about 6 months with all sorts of supplements, and tried MIND with a chiropractic neurologist Dr. Matthew Worth which did a comprehensive program with him including interactive metronome type things
  9. Yeah, I know, the horse has probably already bolted, but I am about ready to strangle this kid for how long he takes to do things and how it ends up affecting everyone else as well. After many years of baby/pregnancy brain I am finally getting myself together and I want to seriously get this kid's school happening with good regular routines. He is 14 and takes way too long to do his work. To this stage I have been working on creating routines but I allow the work I want us to do to extend beyond the time slot I have for it because I like the feeling of ticking something off as complet
  10. Does anyone here have a daughter who has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome? I have been doing some reading lately and am convinced that underneath all of my dd's other issues (Bipolar, ADHD, GAD) she is probably Asperger's. I don't know that there's any good reason to get the label, except that it might help her identify with others like her (we know NONE) and it might help our family understand her better (Autism Spectrum Disorders seem more culturally acceptable than mental illness). Thoughts??
  11. because they make him aggressive. I had pulled them (and some of his favorite foods) from his diet - but we have FINALLY gotten an appointment with the child dev center. would it be wrong of me to feed him some of his favorite foods, that just so happen to also make him aggressive? or take away his supplements that calm him and help him focus? it would be for three weeks while he's testing. I figure if I can live with it, and not worry too much about how much school we get done during those three weeks, maybe he will actually get deficient areas identified. I called, left a message and re
  12. Homeschooling Ds#1 is not going well. :sad: I had been trying to convince Dh since our twins were babies to homeschool, but he was adamently against and wouldn't even discuss it. Finally when twins were in 7th grade, Dh was open to it (after I gave up on it and figured it wasn't ever going to happen), and by their end of 7th grade he was in support of hsing them for high school. I thought bringing Ds home would fit his needs better, but it isn't working out that way. I am thinking it has made it worse. :001_unsure: He just isn't getting the work done. He isn't motivated to
  13. I just wanted to get some feedback on the diagnoses process for Asperger's. I have known for some time that my Joshua has problems. Ever since he was 2 I suspected ADHD, and sure enough when he was six he was properly diagnosed with that. But the ADHD doesn't cover all his quirks, and recently his Psychiatrist has brought up the subject of Asperger's. He seems to fit a lot of the characteristics, but has no sensory issues or rituals. He obsesses over things, has a lot of social issues, kind of lives in his own world. For a while he wouldn't want to be touched, but seems to have grown out
  14. Hi All, Long-time lurker, first time poster on this board... :) I suspect my 7yo DS may have Asperger's Syndrome. We've known DS was different from other kids since he was about 2, but just always chalked it up to "quirkiness". Now we're thinking it might be more than just that. We have an evaluation scheduled at a local Autism clinic in November (the soonest we could get in). In the meantime, I'm doing more research (reading lots of books, reading posts on this forum, surfing the web, etc.). I've listed his primary "symptoms" below - would love to hear from parents o
  15. Hello all! I'm a mother to four great kids (15, 13, and 6 year old twins) and I will be homeschooling them beginning this fall (except my 15 year old). I'm excited and scared, but I see that so many people are thriving and their kids are doing so well. That gives me hope and confidence. My oldest daughter who is 13 has recently been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. From the beginning I knew she was very different from my son, but kids aren't the same so I just took it at face value. Then I had my twins (fraternal) and I saw some similarities between one of them and my oldest daugh
  16. In an effort to not hijack the OP on autism and MUS... On the same note, I'm trying to remediate my 10 year old who just never got the upper multiplication tables. I'm planning to use MUS Gamma this year but also considering trying Times Tales to memorize the math tables facts. He is Asperger's/ADD and I think has dyscalcula - he really struggles with learning orders of operations and remembering how to do something with more than 2 or 3 steps. However, with prompting he can do fairly complex math problems. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any success with Times Tales for our Asperg
