Its a looooong way off for me, but i was wondering what peoples thoughts are on having their own kids, and about raising them in a world where many of us don't understand ourselves? Especially if both parents are AS. But then again everyone has the right to have kids. What about the child though? If it was Neurotypical and growing up with Aspie parents? Would an autistic child with autistic parents be 'better' off?
How do children react to you? Young kids seem to laugh at me all of the time. Either that or they look at me with a confused face. They also get really attached to me very quickly which is odd because I don't really go out of my way to talk to kids, they just seem to like me. I don't know whether I just relate to them or what. Babies frown at me when I walk past them in a pushchair. They literally stop everything they are doing just to frown at me, like they're trying to work me out. I beginning to wonder if they see something about me that others don't
Hiya guys Anyone can answer, but I'd really appreciate the help of parents with children on the Autistic Spectrum. I think what I'm asking about would be called social stories. But they're whatever you want to call them: short stories for children with Autism or Aspergers, aimed at helping them understand things better in a fun and light hearted way. I am going to be writing some stories with my characters Koby and Friends and I want to know if there's any specific thing you would like to be covered. The first one I am doing is about sharing. I grew up with a younger brother who struggled a lot when he was a toddler/very young child, so I know a lot about coping methods (well the ways we coped anyway) and about what can set a child off. And of course, I have Aspergers, my partner has Aspergers etc, so I think I should do okay. Also, can you tell me which font you prefer in terms of being the best for your children to read and copy, whilst still being accurate to how they are taught at school.
