bestTA replied to mps09's topic in Inclusion & Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)Hi I dont have a child with Aspergers but I have dealt with a few of them at work. I think you should choose your moment to talk to your son and explain to him that his brain is just wired a bit different to other peoples. This makes him special in that he thinks a bit differently to other people and may see the world in a slightly different way. It doesnt make him less a person but it might help him to understand the way he reacts to some situations if you both looked at some info etc together. My friends son is now 18 and just been diagnosed. He always knew he was a bit different and is quite pleased that he has now been diagnosed because it has helped him find a job etc. I hope this helps. Good luck.
