I have an 11 yr old son with aspergers. Life is not easy with him. He was diagnosed 2 yrs ago. He is on a medication called risperdal and it is a life saver. School is very hard for him, socially that is. The kids do not pick on him because he is HUGE. The one thing that my husband and I have learned is we have to be FIRM in our dicipline with him no matter how mad he gets.
