I was just wondering if anyone has a family member with Autism. I have two children with ASD and I often face different challenges. How do you cope with difficulties you may face?

hello, i have a son with autisim and he's 6 years old. its a challenge 24/7 and we take each day at a time and learn how to cope with an autistic child. its really hard and it basically takes every energy you have left in you. we have good days and some bad days but we learn as we go along. he gets lots of help and therapy in school and it helps him achieve in school.

I understand what you me. At times it seems that each day brings new fears. Both of my boys started attending a new school last week. One is doing well and yet the other is having a really hard time adjusting. Wish there were more support groups available that would help with siblings, fathers, and mothers.

I have a 22 year old brother with asperger's syndrome an autism spectrum disorder. He is & always has been quite a challenge in our lives but we love him dearly. He has started working over th past few years and has been let go from multiple jobs already because he is such a behavior problem. Being a caregiver for someone like thism is so difficult sometimes and I am not sure how my parents do it sometimes.

I have a 4.5 year old with Aspergers and IT IS TOUGH! but mostly because of the ignorance of others. I have had so many people say the most unspeakable horrible things to me, received letters from family members saying that my child is undisciplined and not welcome, and many disapproving looks from random people that don't understand why my child just Growled at them. They just don't understand that you can BEAT an autistic child to death and they will not understand what you are trying to teach him/her. They learn differently. I had to quit my job and come home with him because he got kicked out of his pre-school because they could not handle him anymore, He goes to therapy 4 times a week, and I love him dearly but the truth is that YOU HAVE TO BE TEN TIMES A MOM to raise an autistic child. They require so much more attention to detail, trial and error and systematic organization. My best advice to you is this "Rubber Ducky, Rubber Duckie, Rubber Duckie", Just like water off a d
