Blog entry – What is it like to parent a child with AS?

This is a blog entry I saw on Slate. Many of the descriptions sound very much like Rob. But, I believe that because we did lots of different kinds of therapy with him, such as Sensory Integration therapy, holding therapy, and PACE, as well as counseling, speech therapy, and social skills therapy, Rob is now much more functional at age 22. He is still struggling in keeping jobs and in school; but this semester he is actually studying and making an effort, and he is getting As and Bs on the exams so far. So we’ll see how the semester turns out.
