Yesterday my child Jacob was diagnosed. with AS and ADHD. After 7 years of his struggles I finally have relief in knowing why he is different. I can now recieve treatment and more help through the school. His biggest struggles are making friends, communication, getting stuck on topics, attention span and dealing with crowds. He can be loving but its on his terms. I feel as though he has a world of his own and everyone else just exist it in. I feel Jake and I are distant at times. Thats hard on me. He struggles to be able to pay attention which affectes schooling and ability to play sports. He has big intrest in Log trucks or Big trucks and motors. After the Diagnosis yesterday I have been researching all I can. I have never heard of this but had always felt he had some form of Autism. I have always been active in treatments fir him. I am looking to connect with parents with kids like Jacob. So this is reason for starting a blog.
