Aspergers Syndrome success stories of kids and adults with Asperger's Syndrome



Let's celebrate the Aspergers Syndrome success stories of kids and adults with Asperger's Syndrome and/or other Autism Spectrum Disorders!

On any given day it's not unusual to experience many different feelings about your child and his/her issues with Asperger's Syndrome.

That's the way it is for me anyway, with my 16 year old son.

I'm always so happy and so proud of my son but I often doubt myself, will something I've said or done cause him to have less success in life than he might have had.

One day I'm confident that he has a terrific future and the next day I'm grieving over probable Asperger's Syndrome related troubles in his future.

Every single day we are questioning our choices and decisions. We ask ourselves "Was that the right thing to do?" or "Did I just screw him up for life?", etc.

Yes every parent goes through that with their kids but because our children have the issues they do, we often have to be extra careful of what we say, how we act, what we do, etc.

And there's the constant worry about doing the wrong thing or not doing the right thing, and causing him even more troubles.

It's a constant battle of questioning yourself about every little thing you do.

While there are plenty of not so good stories and predictions about and for kids and adults with Asperger's Syndrome, I'm on a mission to bring to light all the many success stories of kids and adults with Asperger's Syndrome.

This page will contain links to stories about kids and adults who have met with their own successes while dealing with Asperger's Syndrome.

It doesn't have to be a life-altering, earth-shaking success

As many of you know, we parents have to find the successes of our children where we can. For example, from Kindergarten through 8th grade (middle school was the worse time), we would get calls daily from the school asking us to come down and try to help Cameron to de-escalate, and if needed, bring him home.

When Cameron hit 9th grade, not even once did we receive a phone call that he needed our help in dealing with something! It was kind of funny, we were actually kind of lost, we had become so conditioned to expecting the phone to ring, and knowing that it would be the school, that when those calls stopped we didn't know what to do with the "freedom" of the day.

This is a huge success for Cameron (and frankly, as with all of his successes, it did rock our world!). :-) Sure his grades aren't the greatest and I honestly don't know that they ever will be, and sure he's on an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and probably will be through his graduation, and sure he's in a special class one period every day and I hope he'll continue to have that opportunity because it does him a world of good, but still, since the beginning of 9th grade and now we're finished with 10th grade, not one single phone call from the school asking us to come help with Cameron and a melt-down!

So please do not feel that your or your child's success story isn't good enough for these pages; any type of success from being able to handle a bit louder noises, to being able to even briefly hold eye contact, to "graduating" from a stim even if he/she picks up another, to conquering a tic even if another presents, to moving from living 15 minutes to 15 minutes to living 1/2 hour to 1/2 hour, to remembering to brush his or her teeth without reminders, to making it through a day at school, to learning to let ladies go first (still working on that one but he's definitely getting better), etc.

All successes, large and small, are Asperger's Syndrome success stories

If it made you happy, if it made you smile, if it made you proud, if it made you breathe easier, anything positive, it's a success story and it belongs here in our group of Asperger's Syndrome Success Stories!

By submitting your or your child's story here, it helps you to see that there is success in your and/or your child's life, and sometimes that's all we need to help us keep going for a while longer. =)

Please do submit your own Aspergers Syndrome success stories, and/or those of your children (young and "old"), and you'll have your very own success story page here with its own URL, dedicated 100% to you, so that you can send other people here to read about you and your successes. :)

If you're not quite ready yet to submit a story then scroll down and click on the links for the various adults and children who have already posted their own Asperger's Syndrome success stories here. There aren't a lot, maybe because it's a new section at this website, maybe because folks don't feel their stories merit being included here, or whatever the reason, read the other stories and get a feel for what their successes have been. This could help "jump-start" you into submitting your own story. :-)

I truly hope that this section of our site will serve as constant support and encouragement for all parents of children and adults with Asperger's Syndrome, as well as those with Asperger's Syndrome who think they have nowhere to go but down, and that it will become a place where those with Asperger's will take pride in themselves and their accomplishments.

I look forward to reading your Asperger's Syndrome Success stories!

Below the submission box are links to the other success stories posted by our visitors. Enjoy!

Books that I'm currently reading

I'm so tickled that authors have been contacting me and asking me to review their new books for them!

For as much time as I spend researching Asperger's Syndrome this website should have thousands of pages but because my son has Asperger's Syndrome I find that the things I want to work on very often are not the things that I have to work on so I'm still not able to spend as much time on it as I'd like to.

As he heads into adulthood (he turned 18 on Dec 13 and yes I need to update some things at my website such as my home page that says he's 17) I'm finding that I have even less time on my hands as I spend more time trying to master the puzzle of how to help him transition into "life after high school".

That's where Autism Tomorrow: The Complete Guide To Help Your Child Thrive In The Real World comes in. It's a guide to help your kids after high school. You'll find parts of the book will be applicable and some won't depending on your child's current age. Although the title implies "Autism after high school" there is still quite a bit in there about what to do before your child hits "real life". But overall a helpful book.

Please contact me if you'd like to send a copy of your book to me for review. I would absolutely love it!

Fiction, Non-fiction, Auto-Biographies, Instructional books, etc. I'm interested in them all. :) And if you autograph it that would be SUPER cool! ;)
