My 11-year old son has mild autism as well. His psychiatrist has alternately called it PDD-NOS or Asperger's. He has a lot of anxiety as well. He also has great difficulty dealing with frustrations. His meds do a pretty good job of dealing with the anxiety portion, so right now the biggest focus is on self-control. He is also extremely smart, so we have to make sure that he is challenged, but he doesn't respond well to being pushed. It's a fine line sometimes. Some of his recent behavior can be especially hard on his brothers.

Welcome to MyLot annenisbet. My 10 year old son is autistic and non-verbal. However he does speak a few words and uses a little sign language. How old is your son?

I am sorry to hear that, but I think there is hope for children diagnosed with Autism. There is another post here on MyLot about another parent's success with her child who is Autistic. Do a search for "enzymes" and you will find it. Also I have read from a forum that I belong to about how some parents are using Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) to help kids who are Autistic. Read Dr. Bruce Fife's book "The Coconut Oil Miracle" for more info, or you can also join the forum coconut_oil_open_forum on YahooGroups.

I have five kids and none of them to god be the glory were born with any diseases or disorders. I absolutely have no clue or idea as to what you have to endure on a daily basis. Given that I am a woman and child of God I firmly believe that nothing is too hard for Him. If you are a Christian I firmly believe that God can handle this problem. It's easier said than done but with patience, crying, and standing strictly on God's Word your son will be cured from any spirit of infirmity that the devil has put on your child.

It's cool that you've made this discussion into a sort of support group. I'm a Speech Pathologist and work with children with Autism on a daily basis. It's one tough diagnosis but I'm sure you'll be able to get past it. Most parents go to extremes out of love for their children, consider you child lucky because he has you as a parent. The best of luck to you!
