Hi, I'm new to this I have a soon to be 8yr old son who I really think has the Asperger Autism...he has a lot of the symptoms of it. I thought maybe ADHD at first but I really don't think it's that at all...I just really need some advice on how to go about this. I really feel bad for him & I just don't know how to deal with him, I know I need to do things differently with him then I do with my other kids...PLEASE any advice on how to help my son (other than meds) thank you!
