Autism single parent dating
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. There seems to be alot of resources online for Autistic children. I am a single mom of 2 awesome kids, my son is 7 and he falls under a huge umbrella of behavioural issues, not yet properly diagnosed and on 2 different meds, not at my request but the schools.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... But no place for parents to gather to simply even just vent about the frustration they sometimes feel. Some the problems you've faced in the whole dating scene with them... So far we have come up with ADHD, seperation anxiety, low scale autism, oppositional defiant disorder.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I want to get to know more Single Parents of Autistic children. Maybe even start some sort of gathering process like Park outings and stuff... I don't know about the rest of you, but trying to explain my trials and tribulations to people who have not experienced Autism first hand, seem to not quite get it. I have a huge problem with the way my son is treated at school, I understand the teacher does not have the time that I do to dedicate to him but he is constantly being treated negatively and what they are not recognizing is that if they were constantly reinforcing positives then they would have better results.
I've been reading through the groups here and I would like to maybe try and start a place where parents of Autistic children, myself included included, can post messages or questions. If they stopped picking on the little things like his jibberish, and just gave no reaction atall or gave him the option of having a moment or two to re-focus, the day would go alot smoother.
What I did notice was that things that are heavily colored with artificial colors cause my son to be a lunatic... I do limit his intake of those things, and try not to allow more then 2 days in a row. Right now I get to deal with the fallout from the boys' visiting with their daddy... My kids see their father every 2 weeks for a Sunday afternoon.
The week leading up to the visit and the 3-5 days afterward are almost hellish for me.
The kids her age in school, well I picked her up and was walkin thrugh the hall and almost every kid aknowleged her and said Hi. I would write more, but it is and my son is bouncing off the walls, so am going to try to get him to sleep........great forum idea though, too bad none of the posters live in the same vicinity. For one I have never met a child like him that is so mellow and complacent, until he gets upset and thats when the vulcano erupts. It seems that low level autism or asbergers is the only thing that can explain his behavior and reacuring ulcers. Had her number for awhile from a friend who has a severely autistic child. Hopefully my bank account goes farther than the sessions. I had one student who was seen as being all but mentally retarded, but after careful observation I noticed that the child would mumble the answer to almost any question or any math problem, he could calculate faster than I could just not communicate it effectively! but it does keep him alot more calm, and allow him to focus on things alot more. I've had a few tell me upfront after meeting him, that the tought of me having a kid was cool.. It say "Hi my name is Brandon, I have a Disorder called Autism. Think that she has to go through this on a Daily Basis.. Please Remember this before making any comments." Keep the postings coming.
I have no other way of teaching my son proper behavior in public places without actually taking him out into these places, I need him to know the difference between home and elsewhere. His daddy and I separated nearly 2 yrs ago, but what I do now isn't any different then what I did say 4 yrs ago when we were together and going thru his assessment. I haven't had more then 1 date with most people so it hasn't been much of an issue 'cause they don't get to know him on a personal level, only through what I share with them.Anyways applause to all of u parents with special needs kids.. and when people stop to stare she just hands them the card..It say "Hi my name is Brandon, I have a Disorder called Autism. Think that she has to go through this on a Daily Basis.. Please Remember this before making any comments."A huge round of applause to this one!!!I don't know how many times I could have used one of those, the looks and comments in the grocery store for example when my son would lay on the floor and just scream, I have always held my composure, but now when I think of that business card I am going to smile.We all have our bad days my daugther (14) has almost grown outta the insomnia.
She was in a talent show at school and it was great! Went to a phycologist today to see how we can help our 8yr old. Tell him once about anything and the result is the same. His smiling face whenever he is content with the trivial things that I as an adult think is just plain different like staring at pebbles and rocks for about an hour. I don't have an autistic child, but used to teach special ed and had many students with autism in my class... One friend of mine with a Sever Child made up little business cards..
